About Me

My photo
I am a cloth diapering, breastfeeding, cosleeping, baby led weaning, extended rear facing, eco conscious, married mommy to two beautiful children. They have changed my view on the world we live in. It is now my number 1 goal to make it the best I can for them to grow up in. I find myself always rethinking how I want to live my life and often feel like sharing my findings and thoughts with others. So I guess here's my chance :o) I will talk about topics that interest me. If you dont like them or dont agree, well... there's nothing much I can do!

Bring on 2014

2013 was awesome. Kicking off the year with a vbac was wicked. I had worked and fought so hard to have the birth that I wanted. All my work paid off. Putting that much effort into something made me realise that if i truly want something, I can get there. The rest of the year was spent slowly turning our house into the home I want. Here are my goals for 2014.

Home energy challenge - I'd love to drop our home energy consumption by 10%.

Meal planning - Since my maternity benefits end this month, we will soon be a 1 income family. In our quest to eat local and organic, meal planning will become increasingly important. 

Deal with/prevent clutter - We are slowly selling/giving away things that we simply no longer need in our home. We now have an extra space downstairs for the kids to play in! Having less stuff makes it easier to keep tidy. I also recently joined So Damn Domestic. Having a small task to do each day will help as well.

Run a half marathon - There is a local event in May. Keegan ran it last year and has plans to run it again this year if he is around. I have joined up with another mom and we will train together!

Blog more often - I enjoy writing. I enjoy sharing. With the several big goals I have set up for this year, 
I'm hoping to share weekly updates.

Have you set up any goals for 2014?

  1. These sound like awesome goals! I'm also going to focus on uncluttering, So Damn Domestic-ing, and planning meals a bit more. Also, getting some exercise, and being half decent at my job, incorporating more technology in my classroom. (And psst... This is a secret... Maybe we might start trying to brew a new person by the end of this year)! All the best to you 4 in 2014!
