A 2021 Reflection & My Intention for 2022

Here we are. It's 2022. I know… It's been 2022 for a few weeks now, but I feel like after our chaotic, unexpected Christmas (spent sick and stuck at home) and then our delayed Christmas trip this past week, the New Year is still sinking in for me. At the beginning of January, I was honestly mentally exhausted and not feeling very positive about the year ahead. But the family time and change of scenery we got this past week gave me some designated time to reflect on the past year and think about my hopes and intentions for the year ahead.

The effects of the pandemic continue to be frustrating and draining, and I don't know about you but I still yearn for things to feel more normal and settled. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do about the circumstances of the world. So, I am choosing to focus on the things I can nurture this year -- my health and wellbeing and my family's. But, before I dive into my intention for 2022, I want to share a little insight into how the past year has been.

Having a baby slows you down in a very unique way! Now as 2021 begins, I am starting the year with this fresh perspective and making a new intention.

So before I get into it, I hope you know I'm thinking about you all and hope this post finds you doing well. Now, the truth is a lot has been going on behind the snapshots you may see on Instagram. First, I shared on social media a couple weeks ago that we’re ...
