Sofia 365: Day 297

Day 297: 1.1.13

New Years Day!

After staying up late the night before we all slept in a bit, but with the onset of the new year, we wanted to get our house in ship-shape once in for all!

We spent most of the day sorting and utilizing our organizational furniture. Is it weird that I enjoy organizing as much as I do? I could seriously do this for a living!

By the end of the day I felt great with all that we accomplished, the house was finally in order and Sofia finally has a room she can run around in!

I feel like with the new year, some resolutions are in order, but I am still not quite sure I have my full list yet… I need to work on that. 🙂

And yes, I have a lot of goals for this next year, and a lot of things I need to work on. One at a time, I say, one at  a time.

Year of the Snake, here we come!

New Years Baby!

Sofia 365: Day 296

Day 296: 12.31.12

New Years Eve!!!

The family and I were out and about for most of the day Monday. Had quite a few errands to run… dropping off donations before the first of the year… and mostly doing a major shop at Target for all the furniture and shelving we needed to organize the rest of our stuff. It only took us 3 months since we moved in to finally get this house in order, that’s not bad, right?

After a long shopping trip with cranky Sofie, we headed home to start putting all of this stuff together!
I had to leave for a few hours to meet with a client for a trial session at my studio, then came back in time to make some New Years Eve food (traditional Japanese udon for long life).

Last New Years Eve, Sofie conked out way before midnight, but no, she wasn’t stopping this time! She stayed up to party with mommy and daddy, and we even let her try some sparkling cider (non-alcoholic of course!). She loved staying up with us, and we had a nice time watching the New Years Eve celebrations on tv and hanging out as a family. I even had some time to make a little video for my Youtube channel, which has been dormant for a while.

By midnight, the fireworks were going off all around us, and Sofie kept saying “boom, boom, boom!” and “SHUSH!”. Kind of wish we were able to watch some of the fireworks, but hey, there’s always next year.

Not too long after we rang in the New Year, we all turned in for bed. Hopefully this won’t mess up Sofie’s sleeping patterns too much…

NYE Baby!

New Year, New Outlook

I definitely couldn’t let the year end without getting in one more Vlog post.

It’s that time of year to feel especially nostalgic, talk about the years accomplishments, failures, embarrassments and learning moments.

Looking back at my resolutions from last year, there’s definitely a lot I didn’t accomplish, but there are a few that I actually succeeded at, and/or am now working towards.

This last year threw a lot of curve balls at me, and it certainly wasn’t the easiest, but I will grow, and learn, and move forward.

I wanted to take a few moments to reflect on the last year, and set myself a few more goals for 2013!

Here’s to a a fresh start with a new year!
