Hi 2017! So good to meet you! - Raising Up Wonder

Hi 2017! So good to meet you!

This may be an unpopular opinion but, I'm sad to see 2016 go.

It's been a great year for us! 

This year:
-we had a baby
-we became homeowners
-Blake switched careers, twice.
-I blogged more than I ever have
-Avery had her first dance recital
-I got into my colleges honors program
-we had many Disneyland days

Just to name a few! God has been so good to us and I give Him ALL the glory! 

But of course there has been struggle. It's been a lot of adjusting too. Being a homeowner is expensive, we had to learn the hard way that mortgages are big and budgets are small. I had to learn how to give two babies all of me while making sure I had room for my husband too.

In 2017 I would love to have less
-stress sweating
-fast food
-self doubt
-going through the motions

I would love to have more
-exercise sweating
-whole food
-self care
-memorable days
-fresh air

This life on earth is going by way too fast and time is a cruel thing! I love seeing my babies grow but I want to make sure I'm being intentional with what I'm teaching them and how I am shaping them. I'm hoping I can do that this year. I don't plan on going back to school until Ryder is at least year old so between now and August 2017 he's all mine! Getting myself into Nursing School would be such a huge accomplishment for me in 2017. I'm going to give it all to the Lord though and see where he will take me.

Wishing you the very best New Year's Eve and a blessed 2017! Thank you for hanging out with me on the internet this year! 

In love, Rachel
