As the New Year comes to a close I wanted to take some time to reflect on 2013 while making new goals for 2014.
First off, I want to thank you for your continued support. Last year my book was published and it has been quite a ride. But now it’s time for some new goals and direction.
I want to spend 2014 revamping the way I plan, shop and prepare meals at home. I’ve already started making some changes to help simplify the process. Later in 2014 both my kids will be in school and things will change. There will be more activities and our schedule will become more packed. I will no longer have the luxury of leisurely prepping dinner so I need to be better organized with meals.
I also want to tweak meals to make them my own, instead of trying a recipe and then giving up because it didn’t turn out. So I will be spending a good portion of my time trying different food combinations. I have my “bucket list” of meals I’m determined to pull off in the new year. I’ll blog about these experiences, posting some recipes and saving others for an ebook.
Because I will be talking less about feeding strategies (but won’t stop entirely as it is one of my fave topics!), I’m going to post my top ten tips for new readers who come along. That will be coming soon!
My other goal is a more personal one. Some of you may remember my resolution last year to meditate. Well, it didn’t last too long and I apologize for dropping the ball. I’m so determined to make it work this year that I am blogging about it on a new blog called A Year of Meditation.
I had a few things happen this year that made me realize that I need to slow down, including my mind which has always gone a mile a minute. It’s one of those things I’ve wanted to do for so long, I feel like if I don’t do it now then I might never do it. There will never be a good time and now certainly isn’t. But in my heart of hearts, I feel this is the right thing to do. And one of the things I like to do is share my experiences through writing — so if you are interested sign up for email updates or like my Facebook page.
But before moving forward, let’s look back a bit. Below are my top 10 articles of 2013:
5. Saying Good Riddance to the Clean Plate Club (New York Times Motherlode)
10. Top 10 Feeding Mistakes Parents Make with Jill Castle (100 Days of Real Food)
I wish you a happy New Year and I look forward to another great year of blogging!
