A New View in 2014

I can’t believe that I’m just now doing a post in the new year. In the past I’d be all apologetic about disappearing but meh…I’m starting to think that y’all may be used to my sporadic behavior. And that’s not a good thing. I should really stick to a schedule and not leave people hanging.

Has 2014 been good to you so far?

I love the start of a new year. It’s renewing and refreshing. Granted, I feel like you don’t need to wait until a new year to make changes in your life, but if you do, then hey…it’s all good. Better some change at the beginning of the year than no change at all. I’ve been so inspired by nature this year.

Every day at around 10am, I walk a mile around the perimeter of my office. I look forward to this walk because it’s my chance to get away from the computer, to stretch and look at the sky. That mile walk is the only exercise I get each day so I make the most of it. It’s my little retreat from work, stress, deadlines and social media. Oh, social media. I am apart of the Overshare Generation and it can be so overwhelming sometimes. I’ve been diving into books more and plunging into the lives of fictitious characters is far more entertaining than the “OMG, my big boy is using the potty!” posts that my friends post on Facebook. Sorry, not sorry.

In beauty news, I’ve been rockin’ dark purple nail polish nonstop.

OPI’s Miss You-niverse is just…yas! Far from a unique purple polish, I know, but every time it starts a chippin’, I remove it and apply it again. It’s my signature shade for the season.

Here’s hoping that I can be more active in the blogspace this year. Motherhood consumed me (unapoletically so) last year and like many mothers I struggle to find time to myself to do the things that I once enjoyed. But I’m trying. I suspect that it’ll be far easier once Elle sleeps through the night. Yes. This girl is almost a year old and still wakes up every 4-5 hours to grace us with her gorgeous face. We’re so lucky.

Enjoy your day!
