Happy New Year & My 2019 Word of the Year

Sharing is caring!

Happy New Year, friends!  Whether you were sprinkled with confetti in Times Square or cuddled up on the couch surrounded by kiddos, I hope that your New Year’s Eve celebrations were memorable.

It’s officially 2019 today, and there is nothing like the fresh start of a New Year to set some goals or intentions. While making New Year’s resolutions might seem like a cliché to some people, I’ve always really enjoyed the practice of setting positive intentions for the year ahead.

This year, I have actually been working on my 2019 Goals and Intentions since early December in my PowerSheets Planner, and my word of the year unexpectedly kept popping up during my Prep work.

My Word of the Year:


Before I started working through Powersheets, I would have never in a million years suspected I would choose Nourish as a word of the year. But as I was working my way through the prep work “nourishing” was a reocuring theme…

Generally speaking, nourish is usually used in reference to how we fuel our bodies, by what we eat and drink. But we can also nourish ourselves and acpects of our lives through doing the things we are passionate about and that makes us happy. Being a mother, farmer’s wife and business owner is hard work, and while I am happy doing it I find that I have ignored myself and some pretty important things in the process.

I tend to get caught up in the day to day tasks and the busy work of being a mother, wife and daughter, and I hate to say it but I let A LOT slide…

I put off calling friends I should be in touch with more frequently, I can be tired and snappy with my fam, and very often during the farm’s busy seasons I simpl let life happen to me. 

While working through the challenging stuff that was Powersheets Prep Work I realized, I am often in reaction mode and not living intentionally, and ignoring things I should be nourishing.

I have very specific goals and action steps planned but to give you a sense of how my word of the year ties to my goals here is a little bit of an overview of my goals and intentions for 2019.

  • Nourish relationships
  • Nourishing my well being, by making my health and fitness a priority
  • Cultivate this blog into a fulfilling and meaningful endeavor.
  • Get my grocery budget under control, because what happens every week at Wegmans is just craziness. (Doesn’t really tie into my “nourish” theme but this nonsense needs to be addressed)

I hope you have a wonderful 2019, and I want to close with a heartfelt thank you.

There are so many blogs, even more social media accounts, and so many other things demanding our attention each day. I’m so glad you take the time to stop by my litle corner of the internet, it means the world to me.
