Hello! So the kids went back to school today and the holidays are officially over. Elizabeth wasn't best pleased about it. Its so hard when they're out of routine, I remember those feelings all too well.
I'm feeling a little sad that the festive season is over, but I'm really looking forward to starting a brand new year. A fresh start with adventures to be had and memories to be made. Inspired by other blog's I've been reading, I have decided to choose a word for 2015, to focus on throughout the year. I found it so hard to choose just one. There are so many things I want to achieve this year, so many changes I want to try and make and new things I'd like to learn.
I nearly chose the word 'brave.' My lack of confidence has always, and always is holding me back from doing so many things. This is definitely something I want to work on this year - to step outside my comfort zone and push myself to go new places and do new things.
But my one word is 'create' I have realised lately how important it is to find the time to be creative. To have a project or two on the go, to find some time to do my own thing.
I have lots of DIY's and projects planned and I am also going to start project life. After having a couple of years break from scrapbooking, I feel really quite excited to start again and I think this way of memory keeping will be a much simpler way for me to keep up to date. I'd like to journal more too, to combine my photos with words to tell stories and make sure I am documenting all those everyday moments I'll want to look back on.
I also plan to be a little more creative here, and alongside more DIY projects, I'm hoping to try some new things with my photography and the way I present them. I'm working on a new design for the blog too, so watch this space.
Do you have a 'word' or any goals and plans for the year ahead? x
