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 year....my 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.

Creativity
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! :)

Knowledge
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.

Family!



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....
