Present in 2014

My word for 2014 is present.

I often times find myself with a million thoughts in my head.  A million things on my to do list..and things just keep getting added daily.  I go to sleep thinking of all thats left to do and wake up thinking of what there is to do.

I am the kind of person who thinks constantly.  I am constantly thinking about the future.  Pondering what-ifs and planning things out that are way in the future.  My mom has told me my whole life, stop wishing your life away, enjoy today. And lately more than ever I have realized I need to take that advice.

Stop thinking about our next home renovation or Brynn's next milestone.  Just stop and smell the roses. Enjoy where I am right this very second.  I don't want to look back say that I don't remember things or didn't enjoy things to the fullest because I wasn't really THERE in the moment.  I want to be PRESENT. 

I want to put my phone down, put my computer away, push that to do list to the side and focus on my family more.  

So in 2014 I will play more, laugh more, and snuggle longer :)


  1. Good word. I think it will guide you quite a bit in a bazillion different situations. :)

  2. You two are just adorable!! Great word & happy 2014!

  3. Hi! I liked your post, and I also wanted to tell you that I also have a daughter named Brynn! I don't hear her name often. She is seven. You have a beautiful daughter.

  4. Ok. I just read your birth story. My daughter, Reese, was also born this past April 26! That is nuts!
