Happy (almost) New Year!

If you’ve been following along for any length of time, then you know that this year has been just absolutely crazy.

Here’s my year in review:

prepping our house to sell it last spring (along with two trips), actually going through the selling process all summer, then finding out we’re having twins and getting settled in our new home this fall.

There hasn’t been a moment where we haven’t been busy.

But yet it has been an incredibly good year.

So many changes, but all so, so good.

I honestly wouldn’t change a moment of it. Every milestone has been a step in such a positive direction and I’m incredibly excited to see what 2017 brings.

I’ve been thinking about New Year’s Resolutions this year and what mine might be.

And you know what?

I’ve come to the conclusion that I have no idea what I want it to be.

I think it’s because I focused so much on tangible moments in 2016 that I want to enter 2017 with my hands wide open.

I want to let things be as they will be.

So I guess in a way my resolution is to just relax and live each day as it presents itself.

Now I know some of you might think that will be impossible… that the first year with twins and a toddler won’t allow that.

But I think it’s the perfect resolution for this kind of transition.

I’m choosing not to have expectations.

I’m choosing to let myself embrace the terrible moments and the beautiful moments.

Because they’ll both come… and I’ll be ready for them with open hands.

What about you? What are your resolutions for 2017? I’d love to hear what they are so leave them in the comments below!

Until next time,

    I love your idea of an open embrace for the future! I am not setting any resolutions, but I am going to have to work harder towards goals… I just have not pin pointed all of them just yet. Your year looks like it was filled with so much love and change. I am excited to see where 2017 takes you! Happy New Year!

    Evie made the blog! Karin, your 2017 is going to be incredible! Brutal and beautiful- brutiful (from Glennon Doyle Melton). My word for this year is “Brave”. I’m not exactly sure why yet. It was going to be “joy” but I wasn’t completely feeling that was right either. Then I bought a necklace that says “brave”. I think(?) it’s Holy Spirit inspired, but if not, I know God can use it to apply to many areas of my life. I love New Years. It’s just an arbitrary date of sorts, but it’s sure a great time to refocus. Happy New Year, Karin!

    Hey Karin! You may not remember me, this is Becca (formerly Hays) Jansen. I was a friend of Kristen’s from your dad’s church 🙂 My dad sent me pics of your precious new twins and a link to your maternity capsule.
    I really appreciate this post, as I am 23 weeks pregnant with fraternal twin boys, and know this year will be both wonderful and crazy…..
    It’s the first year in a while that I know what is in store and yet…..Really have no idea. And I am going to take your advice and enjoy every moment.
    Enjoy all your beautiful girls this year.

      Hi Becca! I definitely remember you! Congrats on your twin boys! Twins seriously are the absolute best. They’re hard work, but SO great! I can’t wait to hear about your boys (I just sent you a friend request on facebook). And do try to get some rest! 🙂
