As my husband said yesterday "2012 was the year of Tiffy." I have to agree. Looking back over the past year I am amazed. The blessing were abundant and the changes evident.
I was pregnant for a second time, a true miracle. I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy little girl. I had emergency surgery. I published a book. I was promoted to Executive Team Leader. I became a contributing blogger for Dynamic Professional Women's Blog. I wrote a book. I went to California twice. I am back at pre-pregnancy weight. I held multiple fundraisers for my charity. And so much more.
I am truly blessed and thank God everyday for everything he has given me.
The birth of Lillie was scary and yet I loved it all. She is a beautiful baby. Franki has grown so much, she is quite the independent little girl. I am reminded daily by my husband I prayed for her to be independent and happy when I was pregnant, so it is all my fault. I can say without a doubt the sleepless nights, frustrations, and exhaustion are all worth it. I love my girls.
My blog has found structure and direction. I identified my target audience in 2012 - crafty, gluten free, mommies. If your not one of them, oh well - just keep reading. I love having a plan and a schedule for my blog. Thank you Sis for the guidance and direction in getting my blog under control.
Our family book is a reality and no longer a dream. Thank you Sis and Mom - we made it happen! Not only did we write and create the book, we published it in November to print. In December we successfully published our book Bittersweet Walnut Grove to Amazon and sold copies the first day! Thank you!
As I go into 2013, I do not plan to be pregnant this year. This is a 1st for 2 years. That being said, I am going to create focus this year on making my dreams explode. We are putting out 3 more books in our Bittersweet Thyme series. I can say the Spring book is going to be double the size of our first book. I can't wait to share it with you. I am going to support my husband and we are going to drive our home base business. I want to be working from home permanently in 2013. I am going to become debt free in 2013, Thank you Dave Ramsey for all the support and talks. I am going to finally listen and get this done.
Watch out 2013 - I am going to take you by the horns and drag you to the top of the mountain with me!
