I have never claimed a single word for my year as much as I claiming the word “slow” for 2016.
Yet, if I am really honest with you, it was also really hard. I worked too much and didn't have enough down time. The pace was go, go, go.
Matthew said to me last night, “when are you going to craft again, baby?”
I replied, “January. I can't wait. I could cry over it if I think too much about it.” One of my greatest loves had fallen to the wayside.
This year is going to look different for my family and for me.
We are going to say no more.
Work smarter, not harder.
By nature, I am a producer. I like being busy.
But I need a major change. I can't continue living in a state of crazy busy. I'm looking forward to finishing projects at home that I started months and months ago, scrapbooking again, reading more and just having bandwidth to do those things.
And yes, I'll still be here, blogging. I hope you'll be here too.
It's going to be a great year.
