Week 49/52

Life lately in 2016

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  Yes, it is.  Our house is decked out for the holidays, along with the appearance of several advent calendars and Ellie, our Elf on the Shelf.    Holiday-related events have also started, kicking off with C’s guitar recital this past Sunday.  We’re trying to make the most of the holiday merrymaking here before we leave for France.  Part of me feels sad about not being home for the holidays but another part is really excited about spending the holidays in France with family, especially the girls’ little cousins, and seeing our house there at a different time of the year.

I am also starting to think of my goals for the next year.  It has become a tradition for me to write down my goals this time of the year and start laying the groundwork for their achievement by year’s end.  I don’t end up reaching all my goals by December but I find that crafting my yearly goals help me focus my time and energy on things that matter most.  Do you have a similar ritual to usher in the new year?  I’d love to know.

Have a great week!

  1. I was thinking of writing down some goals for next year and now you’ve encouraged me to do so. Let’s make it a great 2017. Merry Christmas to you and your family Myla. Happy trip, take tons of pictures and post a lot.
