Saying goodbye to another year is always a bit bittersweet for me. Time is fleeting, and I’m aware of this as every new year approaches. It reminds me to make the time count, and to focus on what’s really important.
The year 2010 didn’t start out very well. My husband’s role as a consultant had ended and he found himself unemployed again, but another contract role carried us through until he finally landed a fabulous new permanent job at the end of the year. It took some time, more than we had hoped to wait, but we are so grateful that our prayers were answered in the end and we can finally breathe again.
My daughter seemed to grow up right before my eyes in 2010, and as a mother of course that’s a bit sad but also very exciting. I’m looking forward to seeing what the year has in store for her and us as a family.
This blog, my other baby has also grown quite a bit. I’m so very proud and grateful for the opportunities, and I hope to bring so much more to the table this coming year. What I really want to do is make a difference on a larger scale.
Over the past year, I attended my first blog conference, BlogHer and I finally got to personally meet a few of my favorite bloggers. In 2011, the Disney Social Media Moms conference awaits and I’m eager to learn more and mingle with the talented moms and their families.
I continue to struggle with finding a balance between this blog and my personal life, but I think I’ve made progress. We’ve met some wonderful new friends and have reconnected with old pals. For 2011 my personal goals are to focus and health and family.
Happy New Year! May 2011 be a year of health, prosperity and peace.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this past year and your hopes and dreams from 2011 – please share!
