Reflections 2017 

And so 2017 has come to an end and as I look back at the year that went by so quickly I would never have thought I’d be a mom of a beautiful little boy. How amazing is that though, the beginning of the year I was a mom of two just going about life and minding my own business and adamant that two kids is enough financially and for my sanity and at the end of the year i have a three month old baby boy and now I’m a mother of three going about my new status with lots of craziness and chaos, but also blessings and happiness. I wouldn’t have it any other way. All three of my kids brings so much joy to our lives. It’s mind blowing stuff I tell you.

I have to say I went into 2017 with very little ambition, motivation and New Years resolutions so when I fell pregnant I thought this must be it. The big thing happening this year and oh boy was it a big thing. I spent the entire year anticipating and planning the arrival of my baby, lots of research and getting things together and then when he was born I spent the rest of the year spending time with him and adjusting to life with three kids. I’m currently on maternity leave and will be back at work at the end of January 2018, and I’m ready to tackle anything coming my way. The girls start grade R and they are super excited and ready for the transition from preschool to big school.

I’ve learnt a lot about myself this year; where I want to be in my career and my blog and I’m excited about the possibilities. A year for losses, lessons and amazing blessings and wins. Look out for big things happening in 2018 with my Splendid Ink business, lots of products coming out that I’m excited about. Unfortunately there is no 2018 Day Organizers but don’t fret I have you covered but I can’t say anything about it yet. I’m definitely working on 2019 Day Organizers. My apologies to my die hard customers, your support thus far has been amazing and I’m so grateful.

The thing about the new year is that it brings about hope and opens up the door to new possibilities and positivity and light. It forces you to dream about wanting better things for yourself and for your family. l hope everyone had an awesome 2017 and I wish you all the best for 2018. Bring it on.

Until next time xx
