2014 was a whole year of waiting, and you know what?
I freaking hate waiting.
Waiting to close on our new home, waiting for a positive pregnancy test (still waiting!), waiting to quit my job, waiting, waiting, waiting. I know it’s a part of life, but damn I want to cut in line so bad sometimes! So this year I’m not making any serious new years resolutions. I’m not trying to quit anything or eat better, or drink more water, or exercise more. I’m not promising to put my phone down or watch less tv or save more money. I’m not going to make promises to myself that I know I may not be able to keep, because well, I’m just not good with resolutions okay?
Instead, I’m simply going to live in the moment much more than I have been. I’m going to spend more time doing the things I want to do – the things that make me happy. I’m going to wear more lipstick, put my thoughts onto paper as soon as they come to me, play with my son, cook with my husband, learn to use my sewing machine, watch more movies, go.outside.and.breathe.it.all.in. That’s what 2015 is going to be to me. We finally have our new home, I’ve quit my job for something less stressful, and I’m working on accepting the wait I’ve encountered on the whole giving Wesley a sibling thing. All in good time, friends, all in good time. In fact, if you’re on the same baby fever level as me (we’re talking stage 5 period stalking people), let’s support each other and do this together because o/m/g is it hard.

I’ve deemed this year the #yearofraechel, and to me that means it’s my year and I’m going to take advantage of every single second of it that I am given. No waiting here, guys. Well okay, maybe some. 😉

Cheers to a new year! xo

  1. Just watched your “vlog” and then read this. It makes me miss you, and it is crazy to think the last time we talked on the phone you had just had Wes I think two weeks prior. It looks like you are doing amazing in life! I wish we would have kept in touch more, but I know it’s hard living so far away from each other. I’m always reminded of you whenever I hear Fall Out Boy or Eminem. I will forever be so grateful for our friendship! I’ll be praying for you in your #yearofraechel especially about the positive pregnancy test!! Love you Raech 😄


    1. Wow Lynds, I can’t believe it’s been that long! I know it’s so hard to stay connected when we are so far away but I hope you know I’m always here for you! I would love to get in touch again, maybe even through email or video chat!? Thank you for keeping me in your prayers, I really appreciate that and hopefully this really will be my year… Love you!!
