My 2015 "To Do" List

So I didn't make any New Year's Resolutions this year.  
I figured I'd try something different since I'm pretty goal-oriented anyway.
Instead of resolutions, I've made a "To Do" / Bucket List for the year that I can add to and check things off as I complete things over the coming months.
So here is my list:
1) Pray more - and with purpose and intention - for myself, for my husband, for our relationship and future, for my kids and their future, for my family and friends.
2) Write more. Keep better track of my personal and business blogging. Journal my personal thoughts, dreams, goals as well as the kids' milestones and all the cute things they do and say.    
3) Unplug more often. Intentionally step away from the iPhone, iPad, laptop, TV - and just be present in those special moments with my family.
4) Sucessfully wean Xander and remember what it feels like to wear regular, cute bras again! - Also enjoy not having to plan my outfits based on how easily access…

One Year

Well, Xander is a year old!  
I can't believe a whole year has gone by!
It was a good year, but it was definitely one of major adjustments and re-prioritizing.  
I remember talking to the lactation consultant at the hospital the day after Xander was born.  She asked me how long I planned to breastfeed.  I told her I was going to TRY to make it a year.  She was very happy by my answer and told me that was an excellent and very realistic goal.
And here we are!  - A year later.  - Still going strong -- even after the many, MANY times I cried (and screamed), "I want to quit!"
Breastfeeding is, by far, one of the most difficult, most challenging things I've ever done in my entire LIFE
I am so thankful I was able to master it this go around.  
I am proud of myself for sticking with it even when it was a HUGE inconvenience, especially considering all the out of town work I had over the course of this past year.
