Some of our favorite #NJMOM adventures from this past week include ringing in the New Year with friends and family and checking out your reflection in a puddle (ahh, the simple things are the best, aren’t they). Check out all the laughs and good times you spent together with your kids this last week in December.

Psst! We love sharing your adventures around New Jersey. Be sure to tag your photos with #NJMOM and @njmom for a chance to be featured in our round-up next week.

Saying goodbye to 2018 and hello to new beginnings! I’m not a big fan of New Year’s Eve celebrations, but I love the idea of a fresh start. 2018 was a special year because our family grew by one, but there were also times of pain and stress and confusion and loneliness. I’m happy to say that we’re going out on a high note though. And I’m excited to see what’s on the horizon. We celebrate Liv’s first birthday in March with a big trip to Disney World and hopefully a finished addition to our home which will welcome my mom. We’re beyond thrilled to have her! I hope you’re spending this evening with family wish nothing but health and happiness to you and yours this year. Happy New Year!! ✨⭐️✨

A business group that I am a part of recently challenged me to create a gratitude list of all the things I’m thankful for. As I reflect back on 2018 and look forward to 2019, I thought there was no better day than today to share it. I’m feeling a little vulnerable posting this, but here it is, in no particular order! • • 1. Life and good health because they are everything! Take away my mind, an organ, a limb, one of my five senses, speech – I would be a completely different person. 2. My children for filling my life with love and joy, and being my entire world. I can’t even put it into words. 3. My husband for being my companion in life and working so hard to support all of us. I really should say it out loud more, but I’m so grateful for him. 4. My parents for being my foundation, raising me, and being loving grandparents. Being a parent, I appreciate them more than ever! 5. My siblings. My brother for his strength to overcome obstacles and effort to spend time with my family. My sister for her kind heart and sense of humor. 6. My in-laws for treating me like a daughter, and loving and caring for our kids, especially when we need time for our own self-care. 7. My extended family – everyone from brother and sister-in-laws, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins. You all hold special places in my heart. 8. My best friends from both growing up and college. Even decades later, in our busy seasons of life, we still make time for each other and don’t miss a beat from the last. 9. My home, the quaint town we live in, and our community. I couldn’t imagine raising our family anywhere else. 10. My daughter’s teachers for guiding her with care and love. 11. All four seasons and their changes. 12. Music and books for lifting our spirits and being an outlet. 13. Technology and the internet for making it easy to connect and communicate, and being a platform for my business. 14. Young Living for its essential oils, clean products, community of friends I’ve recently made, and an extra avenue of income for my family. 15. YOU – thank you for following and supporting me. It truly means the world. • • What are you grateful for as you reflect on this past year? I’d love to know!
