A New Word For The New Year!

Happy New Year!

Yesterday, I reflected on 2022 by looking at the pictures I took with my phone. And wow, I took a lot of photos! Last year was filled with new friendships, spending time with family, and enjoying the small things in life. As a wife and mother, I experience new adventures daily! My family grounds me and helps me stay centered on what really matters in life! Here are some of my favorite personal highlights from last year:


My family and I began building our new home.

Attended basketball games.

Ate a lot of pizza!

Volunteered at an assisted living home.

While reflecting on last year's photos, I had one word come to mind,

Centered. For me, centered is about being present with mental and emotional confidence.

I chose centered as my word to reflect on throughout the year, as being centered will help me stay focused and grounded and allow for even more opportunities.
