I love the start of a new year - the freshness, the promise of new beginnings, the excitement of great possibilities and turning a new leaf. Like a lot of people, I made a few goals for this year. For me, goals are more real when you write them down, so they have been written and available for me to review periodically in order to monitor my progress. For as long as I can remember, I created goals. Its how I tracked my progress and my personal growth. Combining the faith to create goals + the power of consistency almost always resulted in a goal achieved.
Since I already created the goals, this year I'm focusing on consistency. Experience taught me that it's powerful, and without consistent actions goals are simply dreams. Consistent actions (or a lack thereof) can mean the difference between a deposit toward meeting our goals or a withdrawal that can lead to us missing the mark. Whether it's fitness, work, relationships or any other area in our lives, consistency breeds results. Not being consistent means that I am not committed, and for me, I aim to live a life where I'm fully committed to my dreams.
Here's to using consistent actions to achieve our goals and dreams!
My Mother-in-Law and cousin threw us a baby shower in early August. Our Baby-Q (isn’t it such an adorable summertime baby shower theme) felt intimate and warmed with the love of our families and close friends who we were thrilled to celebrate with.
I'm currently 38 weeks pregnant and getting everything ready for our baby boy. I'm so excited to meet him! I used to love looking at other people's maternity photos before getting pregnant, and knew I wanted to do one in my third trimester. It's such a great way to document my pregnancy, baby bump and special time in our lives.
Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting the Jojo Maman Bébé boutique in Hoboken, NJ. Jojo Maman Bébé is a mother and baby brand offering quality products at affordable prices. The brand has stores worldwide and recently opened a boutique in Hoboken. There's also a location in Montclair, NJ.
Wedding planning involves a lot of moving parts. It takes patience and efficiency to plan a wedding, especially when you're working within a relatively short time frame. We created a video where we are sharing a few tips on how we planned our wedding in six months.
Almost six months to the day after my husband proposed, we said "I do," on a sunny April Friday at the Westmount Country Club in New Jersey. I look back in awe to think that we planned our wedding in six months!!! I know this would not have been possible without my amazing husband who was an equal partner in planning our special day.
I know it's been awhile. I've been super busy with work, wedding planning and life. With our wedding quickly approaching, I'll be sharing a few posts catching you up with wedding planning and events. Stay tuned and enjoy this post about our engagement party!
I joke with my fiance, that it felt like there were 80 days in January. It was quite a month where we experienced a lot of huge life changes and life transitions (some of which we're really excited about). I lean on my faith for most everything in my life, it's where I draw courage and strength when I need it most. Recently, I was moved by this beautiful profound passage from the book, The Greatest Miracle in the World. It's an incredible read, and although it's long, I'm asking that you read the entire thing, because I am almost certain it will move you too.
