35 Times Around the Sun....
Last year for my birthday, I made a bucket list of all of the things I wanted to do before I turned 35. Most got accomplished, some did not. This year, however, I don't want to make a to-do list. I have decided that this year should be for slowing down, for enjoying. Don't get me wrong, there is still plenty of stuff that I want to do (I am a do-er, that's for sure), but I want to make sure that I stop and enjoy the ride along the way. I have seen how easily time slips past while you are chasing children and picking up toys, and I want to try and savor this next one as much as I can. I want to worry about accomplishing less, but having more fun doing it. I want to work on finding a balance and a rhythm in our daily lives. And I want to enjoy my family and friends and the time we spend together. Pin It Now!
