2015 – A Busy Mother’s Year In Review

Don’t have too much time for this one today but I did want to do a short write up on a year that was one crazy ride.

I saw a video that really sparked the idea for this blog post – check it out below:

texas_trip_horse2015 was all about discovering new places with my favorite people. My partner and I had the opportunity to explore more our our beautiful home state, Texas! We took two road trips, one to visit family in Houston and the other to visit old college friends in Dallas. This was big for us because it was one of the first trips we’ve taken without the little ones – luckily for us, Grandma helped out. Normally an epic road trip like this would have involved lots of planning a head of time. We really have the keep the kids occupied with different activities along the way otherwise we tend to go a bit…. well… crazy.

The girls and I took a trip to California where we treated ourselves to wine and spas. The ladies at La Estetica in San Francisco (well, San Mateo) made us feel right at home and treated us like we were royalty. Then we popped up to the wine country and the rest starts to get a little bit hazy after that.

Finding that balance between letting yourself unwind and working hard has always been a difficult thing for me. I feel like this year I really was able to get more balance and this effected all different areas of my life in a positive way. From the people I was with to the things I was doing, being happier in general made every experience more memorable.

I’m looking forward to what 2016 brings. I’m hoping I can piggy-back off this positive energy that 2015 had and really hit the ground running in 2016. One of my goals, like always, is to blog more and to share my thoughts and experiences. These seems to always get left at the bottom of the lift but I am going to try make a conscience effort to apply myself more in this area.
