Have you started planning your year ahead yet? Using a calendar to map out routines, extra activities, chores and even finances, is a great way to make sure all family members are on the same page. A written calendar has always been the best way for me to make sure I stay organised with our busy schedules, and I'm excited to try out this new calendar format this year. The act of physically writing something down is actually proven to help you remember things better, so a written calendar is a really effective planning method. Here's a look at how I set up our family calendar...
Hi everyone, it's great to be back on the blog after a week away. As I talked about in my last post, my husband and I enjoyed a wonderful break in New Zealand for our friends' wedding. New Zealand is such a gorgeous place, have you ever been? We were staying in Queenstown, and it was just stunning. I would highly recommend putting it on your list of places to visit!
The kids had a fantastic time at home with both sets of our parents - we are so lucky to have the ability to go away and know our children are in safe hands. Despite missing them like crazy, it was just amazing to have so much one-on-one time. I always love a break from our everyday schedules, household chores and general busyness, but to have a complete break from parenthood was a pretty crazy feeling. Let's just say the wine was WELL enjoyed, especially at the wedding :) But I'm here today to talk about our holiday planning and personal goal setting.
When I'm on holiday, my mind is always buzzing with great plans for things I want to do, and projects I want to work on, around our house. When I get back from holidays though, this thought process makes it a whole lot easier for me to set goals for what I want to achieve for the start of the year. Here's my process and new goals for the year ahead.
