Hi friend! How’s your start to the new year going? I’ve officially packed up Christmas and the kids are back to school today, so I guess you could say, the party’s over.
Or, maybe it’s just beginning with a fresh start. That sounds like a better way to look at it, but I’m still a little sad that the holidays are over. Thankfully, they’ll come around again!

I love looking back and seeing what we’ve done in the last year. I’m so grateful for each and every one of you that takes time out of your busy day to spend it with me.
Hi friend! Happy new year! Does it feel like it yet? We still have one more day until the kids go back to school, so I’m not fully in ‘work’ mode yet.
But, I did spend the better part of the weekend taking down the Christmas decor, decluttering, organizing and cleaning. And that was surely a lot of work! I have a huge donate pile sitting by my door and the house is feeling quite fresh.
I like a clean space, but still like the place to look warm and inviting, so I’m keeping the winter decor theme going for awhile longer.
Hi friend! Do we even know what day it is lately?! I know it’s New Year’s Eve! We made it friend. We made it through 2021! Can you believe we’re about to start 2022?! Wow! We don’t have any big plans for tonight, it’ll just be a quiet night in, and I’ll probably be asleep by 10! Sounds good to me.
I think this weekend we’ll start taking down our Christmas decor- see what I use to store it here and how I’ll refresh the house here. I look forward to that, but it’s bittersweet because the holiday season is such a wonderful time of year.
Hi friend! I hope your week is going well! Are you enjoying more down time or back to work? My kids are home for Christmas break until next week, so it’s a little bit of both for me.
For now, we’re still enjoying our holiday decor and are in no hurry to take it down. I think maybe Sunday, January 2 will be a good day since I can get the kids (and Brian) to help!
CHRISTMAS STORAGE SOLUTIONS
A couple of years ago, I invested in some durable and functional Christmas storage items and it’s made packing everything up so much easier.
Hi friend! I hope you are enjoying your week! My mom gifted Jordan an Easy Bake oven for Christmas and we’ve been making adorable little cookies in there. They are so cute!
But, I’m done eating all the sweet things! I totally indulged all of November and up to Christmas, so I feel like my body needs a detox! How are you feeling? Let me know in the comments if you want to see more fitness content here, I could share my next challenge if you want.
