How about a Friday Five for the New Year?
DOCUMENTING: I’ll be the first to tell you and admit that I am horrible at getting out the big camera and taking pictures of the kids. I was thrilled to see that Jenny had created this list of 52 Prompts for documenting throughout the year. I’m going to try to keep up with this throughout the year and post the photos on the blog. You can head over to Jenny’s blog and get the whole list, and even click on the different prompts for ideas. I printed the list and put it in my calendar for easy access!
HEALTHY EATING: We’re 7 days into the LiveWhole365 challenge, and it’s going better than I even expected. You can follow along on Instagram for daily inspiration. And today Kristin has a great post about planning for the year on her blog. You can totally grab the undated version and jump in anytime. I promise you won’t regret it!
PLANNING: I ordered the Spark Planner when it was on Kick Starter and I’m dying to get my hands on it! It won’t be here until mid-January, but I’ve been playing around with the printable version and it may just be the planner my dreams are made of. I’ll be sure and report back.
SNAIL MAIL: What about writing letter and actually sending them in the mail. You know, rather than text messages or Facebook posts. I’m going to try to send a letter to someone each week for the year. Friends, family, someone who needs encouragement…
RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: We’re committing to buying less and focusing on experiences more. More travel, more family time, more dinners at home. Less shopping and Amazon Prime. But most importantly, more giving to others. I’m so excited about doing a random acts of kindness challenge this year, especially because BK knows and understands what it going on. I hope after deliberating doing and showing her this year, it will help become something that is instilled in her.
