Firstly, a happy new year! 2017 has arrived, and not a moment too soon for most it seems! Last year was a year of international surprises (Brexit, the US elections, anyone?), local argy bargies (attempts to get a vote of no confidence in our president, the lackluster Springbok performance) and personally for me, a lot of change.
I resigned from my job after almost 8 years to pursue a new fresh opportunity in the digital marketing space, I got pregnant and had my second son Oliver, my eldest son Benjamin at the age of 2 and a bit moved rooms, got a big-boy bed and started playschool, my dad had two successful hip operations, my folks moved house after 30 years and I finally started my blog!
I’m also keen to start living more intentionally when it comes to health, food and simplicity. I believe that those three things will really enable me to have more energy to devote to myself and my family and which will keep me happy and content for longer!
Most of all, I want this year to include time to reflect and process my experiences as a mom, wife, sister, daughter and friend… to strive to be better, to work harder and love more fiercely, to pray with passion and to laugh louder. And to do some great DIY too!
Here’s to the new year!
