Happy 2014 Everyone… I’m back!

What better excuse to start blogging again than the start of a new year, right?!?

2013 has been the most wonderful and life-changing year of my life with the birth of my daughter.  Life is definitely harder as a working mom, but I’m filled with joy and gratitude every day.  Of course I’m no different than the rest of you overly ambitious individuals, so I begin 2014 by thinking of all of the changes I will make this year.

As I thought about my resolutions this year, the list began like this:

Stop Being Lazy

  • Cook more
  • Blog more
  • Work out at least 3 days/week
  • Keep my house more tidy (in particular to stop throwing mail and clothes into their respective piles on the front table/bedroom floor)
  • Make more time for friends
  • Entertain more

Then I moved on to my more personal goals:

Be a Better Person

  • Be more… thoughtful, kind, humble, friendly, happy, gracious, affectionate, etc.
  • Be the best mom I can be
  • Carve out quality time for my husband
  • Spend more time with my grandmother

Then, realizing that I’m just a mere mortal, I moved on to…

Stop Being So Hard on Myself

  • Be proud of my everyday accomplishments as a working mother
  • Find balance
  • Stop worrying about what others will think of me/my actions

Finally, I realized that what I really need to do in 2014 is to…


Let’s face it, I’m not Martha Stewart or Sheryl Sandberg or Mother Teresa or Wonder Woman. I’m Me, and all I can do is try my best everyday to be the best Me I can be.

So this year, my hope for all of my readers is that you make every effort to be the best version of yourself and…

Be Happy Being You!
