Into 2014

New Year.  New beginnings.  Resolutions.  Saying goodbye to the old year.  And remembrance. 

We started the year with a visit to KL for Ella's birthday.

This year will be a big one for me (or so society dictates) because I am turning 40 in December.  Wow. Hard to really get my head around because I basically just had a birthday.  I've just embarked on the last year of my 30s tour.

In some ways, I feel compelled to make resolutions, embrace a new beginning and think about what I'd do differently.  But in other ways, I really don't want to do any of this.  The reason is really quite simple.  You see, of any age, I've loved my 30s the most.  I feel most confident with who I am and where I am in my life, right now.

I really don't want to resolve to change things, really.  I'd just like for things to be as good as they were last year.

I mean, I know there's a lot I can do better.  I need to Skype my sisters more.  I should really try to work out more consistently.  I need to learn to say no at school more.  I need to put my iPhone down and leave it plugged into the wall out of reach, more.  And of course, I can always work on finding balance so that I don't feel so stretched for time, especially with my kiddos.

Mum turns 70.

I think I'd do all those things anyhow.  I suppose reflection and a reminder to do these things is good.  I'm a Humanities teacher, and I preach reflection.  Of course it is.  

Family holiday to Fij.

There's lots coming my way this year already.  I can't wait.  I've got more Etsy Confessions interviews, I'm going to HK Fashion week to see the Eco Fashion Finalists, and I've finally ordered blogger cards.  I'm excited to see where this might all take me, so I hope you'll stick around for the ride.

The hubby turns 40 and I surprised him, again.

Happy New Year!
