    This word touches on many parts of my life...

  11. Organize. My house, my work, my life.

  12. Adjust-with a new baby coming in 8 days, I need to adjust to so many different changes that are coming our way and I want to do it the best way I can so that my 3 year old doesn't feel left out! I resolve to do what I can and let go of the little things that I usually obsess over:)

  13. JOY!! I refuse to let anyone or any situation take away my joy!!

  14. Smile.

    Sometimes we get so busy and focused on what we need to do that we forget to smile and enjoy our surroundings.

    Appreciate what I have been given, the small moments in life, the good and the bad, because it all means something in the big picture...

    Running off to organize the house before the weekend starts! hugs, Cathy

  19. "BREATHE"

    in life sometimes you just need to BREATHE. it will all work out.
    just BREATHE when you miss someone, and think about the memories you made instead of the memories you won't be able to make. BREATHE when you are working and have to many to-do's. BREATHE when your friends drive you crazy but appreciate that you have good friends. and BREATHE to make sure you are catching all of life's little moments. just BREATHE. x

  20. Hi Sarah,
    my word is "encourage." everyone needs it. (great promotional idea! your photography is beautiful and creative)

  21. Decorate!

    Not just in the usual sense of the word but this year I exist to decorate each little corner of my world with, grace, love and creativity. To leave a colorful imprint on each person I come in contact with and each thing I touch! Decorating makes me smile and makes my heart sing and I believe it will do the exact same for others!

  22. Balance...
    I will learn to be a better juggler. I will remember to keep the ball called "Me" in the air. Too often I drop her while juggling home and school. A balanced me will be a happier wife, mother, friend, and teacher.

  23. CHANGE!
    We are moving to another state, new church, new home, new schools, new everything!!! SUPER DUPER EXCITED. God is doing big things in our family...can't wait to see the outcome.


Thanks for stopping by!
