Currently {January}

Listening: to all the new words Michaela says. It's so exciting to hear her expanding vocabulary. "Okay" and "all right" are a couple things I like to hear her say. She is putting "a" in front of a lot of her words. She will tell Grammy that she wants to go "a-bed" when she wants a nap, and today she told me she wanted to go "a-home" when we left the grocery store.

Loving: this vacation time. It has been very relaxing, and I love being with my girl every day. I love staying up as late as I want to, and getting up after 7 in the morning.

Thinking: about my goals for the new year. I don't make resolutions, I just use the beginning of the year to reevaluate what I'm doing, and what I could be doing spiritually, financially, physically, etc. 

Wanting: to weigh a little less. Thus I'm starting WW Online again this weekend. When my produce delivery arrived yesterday, instead of just shoving some of the veggies in the fridge, I researched some lowfat/low points recipes I could make with them. I've been thinking about canceling my membership with that service, but if I can better incorporate these beautiful organic veggies into my diet, I'll stick with it a while longer. My grocery bill was lower just by taking the time to plan my menus.

Needing: to make the most of these last few days off. I want to get some things done, but I also want to have some fun. The weather is warming up, and Michaela and I should take advantage of that.

Music: Since the Christmas music ended, I really haven't been listening to much of anything. One of my speakers in the car is blown, so we've been listening to classical music when we're in the car. The bass on almost any other kind of music makes that speaker buzz, and that drives me crazy.

Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year Sweet Friend! I'm looking forward to all of the sweet words Michaela will learn in the coming months! XO!

  2. Hello Joana!
    I thought I'd invite you to Melanie's linky party over at You get to choose a word that describes what God wants to work in your life this year. My OneWord2013 is Love. Melanie could do a free OneWord button for you in less than an hour and you can join the party! Love to Michaela.
