Wow, it’s almost 2018! I hope you had a wonderful, meaningful Christmas this past Monday. We enjoyed the day at home and were able to spend some of it with my family. This was the first time we’ve really been able to host people at our house, and it was so nice. Having some extra space has been great, both for our own family to spread out and for us to have more people over. (If you’re new to this blog, we were previously in a 672-square-foot condo, and are now in a multi-story duplex. Having a kitchen and living room separate from each other is lovely to say the least!)
This Christmas came and went so quickly, I almost missed it. It was barely before Christmas day that I realized where in the calendar we were. That bugs me a bit; I did thank God for His gift to us but I didn’t spend time reading Jesus’ birth story or thinking and focusing on it like I usually do. Much of the busyness and sleeplessness is out of my control, but I wish I had made more dedicated time to stop and ponder. Good thing our salvation isn’t based on our works. :)
With the new year coming right up, I’ve been getting my schedule organized. Sometimes (okay, often) I feel like I fly by the seat of my pants and I’d like to add a little more consistency. I’ve given myself leeway to adjust to a new baby and his needs, and I’ll continue to do so — but I’m itching to ease into a new schedule that works for our family. Anyone else felt that way? ;)
The magazine launch is almost here as well; it goes live on January 6th! I’m excited and nervous and praying that it will be exactly what God wants it to be and reach everyone He wants it to reach. It’s been quite a bit of work, but it’s been fun and fruitful. I’m already looking forward to the next issue and seeing how it grows.
Naptime is almost over now and my little munchkins will be running around all cute. Well, one will be running and one will be squirming. Hope you enjoyed reading my train of thoughts and getting a quick update on life over here. Have a great weekend and New Years!
