    Reflecting on 2020.

    I’ve been wanting to write about 2020. A year in review. A wrap up of the year that was. Some reflections. It’s hard! I mean, how do you talk about a year that felt like a decade’s worth of stuff was squished into it? It’s definitely been a unique year and one we will never forget (even if we wanted to). It is one of those years that will go down in history. Our grandchildren will be learning about it. I cannot begin to imagine what that will be like for them (they might be bored of our old people stories about the time we couldn’t get toilet paper). So…

    Taking Stock: August 2020

    I gotta say: 2020 is really giving me a sustained dose of writer’s block. Usually when I have writer’s block, I take a break and get out and about. I change something. I “get a life” as they say. At the moment I only write for fun, but I like to keep the writer in me alive. This year has been a year for listening more (to important information regarding Covid-19 or so I can learn more about important social issues). It has been about social distancing and about very personal growth (stuff not for the blog at this point). I have watched my 8 year old maturing before my…

    2020: Week 2

    This week’s biggest themes were my lack of sleep, the Little Miss really showing me how Terrible her Almost Twos were and a lot of swimming! 8 January – Wednesday This morning I thought I would earn some good mum points. I took the kids to the library. I envisioned myself sitting with the Little Miss, reading her a lovely little book from the baby section while the Little Mister borrowed some books to take home and devour (seems he takes after his mum when it comes to reading – before I became a mum that is haha). I figured he’d be stoked and feel independent and I’d be doing…

    2020: Week 1.

    Hey there! It’s 2020 and I love it. I love how it looks and how fun it is to say. I’m excited that it’s a new year full of new goals and possibilities (and no doubt surprises and curve balls that we could never fully anticipate). Last year I set the intention of documenting the year with a weekly update. It was supposed to be a great record for me to look back on and a way of sharing my life in a chatty, diary like kind of way. A wrap up of what I’d been up to. The good, the bad, the ugly. The thing is, a chunk of…

    My word for 2020: Authenticity

    I don’t always find a word that sums up my intention for an upcoming year. Sometimes nothing comes to me and I just shrug and let things unfold. Not this time, my friends! This time I am passionate AF about my word. I did a lot of growing and learning in 2019 and now I want to spend 2020 making sure I never forget my lessons. The past decade in general has been intense! Lots of personal growth for my husband and I, individually and as a couple. We’ve become parents. Survived a big chunk of that time during which we couldn’t conceive the Little Miss and then undergoing a…
