I have sat down to write this post about a dozen times.  Not sure why, but the creative juices just aren't flowing for me.  I have always been so inspired when it came to my photography and my blog.  It has been a source of enjoyment and self reflection.  However, as of late, it serves as one more thing on my never ending list of things to do.  I want to sit down and write about how our life is rainbows and roses, but the truth is, it's not.  There are days I never get out of my pajama pants.  There are days that I feel all I do is yell at my kids.  There are days where it seems nothing I do, and I mean NOTHING, is good enough.  Meals don't always get made, laundry doesn't always get finished and yes, sometimes the toilets go way too long without a scrubbing.  
This is life… this is my life.  
All I want out of my life is no regret.  I don't want to look back and wish that I played Legos with my boys more, held Evie a little longer and spent a little more time just being with my family.  The question is, how do I get there?  There is always "one more thing I have to do" before I can help Alex with his new set.  There is always "one more minute" before I can play a game with Tyler.  And bedtime with Graham and Evie is always so rushed, because lets face it, by the end of the day I am exhausted.  I try to be conscious of my action.  I try to be the parent that I believe my children deserve, but life and the to-dos always find a way to creep back in.  
So with this being said, what I hope for for 2014 is
I hope to cherish each and every moment.  I will strive to live for today and not fear tomorrow.  
I hope to spend more time with my kids and make my marriage a priority. 
Most of all I will have no regrets.
This is my one chance… there are no do overs in life.

What are you goals for 2014?
