Happy 1st Anniversary!

I can't believe a year has already gone by since I started my teacher blog. I started off very excited to meet new people and find new inspiration...I was not disappointed. Thank you to those of you who have followed my blog and helped me jump into the blogging world!

I went MIA in September because I found out that I was expecting my 2nd baby! I had planned on continuing to blog but the pregnancy was much more tiring than my first. I gave birth to my adorable son on December 15th and I am now getting back on my feet in the real and blogging world - which is a little easier since I am on maternity leave and have some time to think about what I really want from my blog without worrying about my classroom. (Although I am almost always thinking about how to improve my practice in the classroom!)

So here I go with the start of another year! Thanks for your support and I look forward to getting to know y'all much, much better!

My One Little Word for this year is Faith. I have spent the last couple years relying on myself and my own plans WAY too much. I need to back off and let things be what they may. I hope this will help me to see things as they really are and stop worrying so much about every little thing. I am a constant worrier and it's just too exhausting! I have enough to deal with without the things I choose to obsess over with worry. I cannot control everything I want to and that's okay. So I will go forward in faith that all things will work out for my good and be happy because that's what we're here for!
