It's My Birthday and All I Want Is More

Today is my birthday.  Today is my 33rd year. 

Today is my day and all I want is more.  No...not more gifts, money, or pretty things wrapped in pretty packages.  I want more of something else.....something far more important in life. 

This past 32nd year...was honestly not my favorite. It wasn't all horrible.  Don't get me wrong, there are things that I am super thankful for that happened this year.  I am. But overall, this wasn't my favorite.  And that's okay.  There will be years like that.  A lot happened with me, my family, my kids, and my friends this year.

But....Today is the beginning of a brand new year... my 33rd year.  So, this year, I am asking for more.  More laughter, more love, more gratitude, more prayers, more amazement, more peace.....more..... 

Mother/Daughter time
My little angel, Lucy
My daughter is growing way too quickly and I want it to slow down.  She is entering first grade this upcoming year.  Crazy! It feels like yesterday when I was welcoming my little angel into the world. Sometimes I feel like I give Tommy, my 3 year old, more attention because he's younger. So, I want more time with my little Lucy.  I want more cuddling with Lucy. I want more days out with just my little girl.  I just want more Mommy/Lucy time.
Paul and I
Date Day/Nights
Paul and I will be married 9 years this coming September.  Nine years....and we should still be in our honeymoon stage! :)  But life can sometimes get in the way.  Having two full-time jobs, two children, and an adorable dog can be overwhelming at times.  So, what I want this year is more quality time with my husband.  I want more hand-holding, more flirting, more hugs, and more kisses.  I want more nights of cuddling on the couch watching a movie, and more nights of going out to eat at our favorite restaurants that we haven't been to in years.  

Girl Time
I have some very special girls in my life that I want more time with.  I want more time with my two sisters that mean more to me than they'll ever know.  They are my role models.  They are my best friends. They tell me when I am being ridiculous no matter how upset they know it will make me. Also, I want more time with my life-long BFF.  I've known her for a little over 18 years.  We were college roommates all 5 years, and have never lived more than 8 minutes apart our entire life.  And I can't forget about my partner-in-crime, Melissa.  We've taught together for 5 years.  We work perfectly together and I would love to spend more time with her outside of our classroom walls.  I want more nights where I can sit with my girls and just talk without disruptions!  I want  more late night chat sessions with a bottle of wine and chocolate m&ms.

I love DIY projects.  I am usually 50% successful with my projects, and that's okay.  I want to make, create, construct, and be inspired more this year!  And maybe I'll wish for more of a success rate too! :)

I've only been blogging for a month.  It's only been a month and I want more.  I want to learn more from others.  I want to read about more successful lessons and activities.  I want to read more books that other bloggers suggest.  I want to write more and share ideas with others.  And I can't forget to mention, I want to attend more blogger meet-ups!

Family Time
Family means a lot to me.  I have two supportive and loving parents, two amazing in-laws,  several sisters, several brothers, and adorable nieces.  I want more time with my family.  I want more dinner gatherings, parties, cookouts, family portraits, and vacations together.  I want more time with each person.


Hopefully this post doesn't come across as sounding greedy.  Yes, I am asking for more.  But I feel like I am also asking for less.  I don't need pretty jewelry or fancy clothes in order to be happy.  All I want is to be surrounded more by my family and friends.

I am ready to start this new year. I am ready to see what this year has in store for me.  Stay tuned....
