One Little Word for 2015

I'm excited to join forces with the Primary Powers' super girls to share my New Year's Resolution. One Word for 2015. Are you ready?
Aside from being Super Mom and Super Teacher, I have a lot of things I want to do: blog, create products, start an Etsy store… except there aren't 57 hours in a day. I can't do it all. So what's most important?

My family.
I posted something on Instagram earlier this week: accept that "good enough" is really good enough. I was surprised and encouraged by the amount of positive feedback I got. Let's be real for a second: we all work our you-know-whats off. I'm not going to bring 4 hours worth of work home every night anymore, and I'm not going to beat myself up for not doing so. I will work as hard as I can when I'm at work, and then I will come home to be with my family.
I don't want my kids to look back at their childhood and remember their mom behind a computer screen.

So, friends, you might not see a whole lot of me on this blog in 2015 (I do post frequently to Instagram though). It's not because I don't want to be here. In fact, I have a list a mile long of blog posts I want to write. I just want to be present with my family more. They're only little for so long. And I'm going to soak up every second.



  1. Good for you! Even as a veteran teacher with grown children I started doing the same this year-leaving work at a decent time and not feeling bad if I didn't spend 3 or 4 hours doing more work at home. It has made a world of difference!!!

  2. Angela,

    What a great word! I'm constantly trying to evaluate and prioritize things in my life. I want my focus to be my faith and my family…sometimes I let the other "stuff" get too high on the list. Great reminder! What a fun linky.

    Teaching Little Miracles

  3. Two thumbs up for you!!!!! Yours babies will grow up so fast. You should be spending as much time as possible with them.

  4. I can't wait to see your posts, because I know they will be the best ideas! Have fun with your family! :)
