This year has been filled with New Day's Resolutions!
One of my resolutions earlier this year was to get organized. Of course, with a toddler in the house and two adults who work from home, this is always a work in progress, but something as simple as a few baskets to hide the clutter of books and toys immediately makes the living room feel less chaotic. I found these baskets on Craigslist for 80% less than retail!
Another big resolution is one that I try to make daily; My decree to get out of the house! To introduce, enlighten and instill a sense of curiosity and confidence in Vivi.

Los Angeles has such diverse geography and culture. There are so many amazing things to do and see here, we have yet to scratch the surface! And certainly, with the creation of our Mommy Hiker Community, we are never want for a reason to get outdoors with the babes! These ladies continually inspire me and push me to better myself and as a result, I am a better wife and mom.

My most recent resolution was one that I resisted and procrastinated on for at least the last two years! Blogging. Ha! I most certainly had the support and encouragement, but was lacking in the confidence. I have been pretty active in social media for years now, on Facebook and Twitter and have a modest yet loyal following. I also write in many different fashions, but there was the personal element attached to blogging that kept me at arm's length. I thought what could I possibly write about my day-to-day life that would interest people? Then, I realized how easily I have been motivated and inspired by others who are brave enough to share their personal stories, thoughts, insights, anguish and passion with the rest of the world. It's cathartic. It incites me to think more, to write more, to want to DO more and I'm so glad I didn't wait until the New Year to start!
What will your First New Day's Resolution be?
