10 End of Year Questions

Hello, lovelies and Holidays-- I say that until I begin to say Happy New Year, ha!! Hope you all are having a wonderful season filled with joy and fun! 

2020 is coming soon!!! Here's a look at a little inward Q& A as we reflect on the past year. Thanks to Dara who got these questions from the 10 things to tell you podcast  

1. What was the best part of the year?
The best part of my year was the cruise we took with some family to celebrate my dad's birthday... It came after a pretty stressful couple weeks when A had a health scare and we weren't sure if we could make the cruise. So happy it all worked out and by then we were ready for a vacay! We had an awesome time and needed my family, the sunshine and beach time. As a bonus, we also made it to Universal as well for a couple days. 

2. What worked and what didn’t work?
Summer camps-- my kids will repeat their Girls Rock camp until they age out of it, ha! Conversely, they did a YouTube production design/Lego robotics camp and I felt they were on screens a whole, whole lot. They do enough screen time at home, don't need to pay for them to do it as well. 

3. What were the best conversations you had this year?
One of my friends told me "not to put myself in that space." It was eye opening. We really do that to ourselves lots as women and we have to be strong enough to change that! 

4. What was a discovery you made this year?
That if you and your family are healthy, physically and mentally, that's the most important thing of all. 

5. Who was the most influential to you this year?
The guy who created Headspace. I love the guided meditations. It's a journey and I love it. 

6. What was the best entertainment you consumed this year?
I loved The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo. It was so heart wrenching and well written. 
I also love A Million Little Things and This is Us. Oh and our family became The Masked Singer fanatics in 2019. Love, love, love it!!

7. Who or what are you letting go of?
Things that bring me down or stress me out. Negative energy is not a good thing, friends. 

8. What behaviors do you want to change?
I'd like to have more self control- with chips/cookies(!), with my patience with my kids, with screen time.... 

9. Where did my beliefs shift?
I would say that recognising how important peace of mind and how gradually I  can actually achieve this was a big aha for me! 

10. Who do you want to be in the next year?
At the risk of sounding cliche, I want to be a good person and the kind of person my children respect and admire. 

What about you? Do any of these resonate with you? 


  1. Love this. I too loved The Light We Lost.

  2. What a great way to look back at the year.

  3. Yay for the cruise! So glad A is ok, and you guys had a wonderful trip <3
