For many a new year is a fresh start and a new beginning. For others it is a time to start something new, get healthy or give something up. I feel grateful that coming into the new year there’s not much I want to change, but plenty I want to improve. I haven’t made any resolutions as such but I have a few good intentions and plans that I hope to bring into effect over the coming months.
Firstly I want to spend even more quality time with my family. We’re pretty good for doing stuff together but I want to have some adventures this year and try some new things with the children, as well as see as many amazing places as possible with them.
Secondly I want to have a bit of a downsize and own fewer things, starting with donating most of my books as well as some of my clothes and the kids old toys. I like the idea of a slightly simpler existence.
Thirdly I want to pick up sewing again as I’ve not done any for ages.
Lastly I’m going to work really hard to save enough money for a big family holiday this year. I really want to go to Florida as we went there when Jess was 4 and I’d love to take Lila. So this year I am going to work extra hard at being frugal and spending a lot less than I did in 2014. I’m also going to sell some of my vintage collection as I hate keeping vintage things that I’m not using and someone else could enjoy.
I’m going to continue working hard on the blog, take lot’s of amazing photos and finally get round to making all the videos I have planned.
Do you have new years resolutions this year or just a few plans for year ahead?
I hope all have a healthy and happy 2014! xxx
