2013 Aspirations {Marriage/Family}

Ok so this week I’m going to walk through my Aspirations for 2013 in each of the major areas I talk about on the blog:

    • Health/Fitness    
    • Marriage/Family
    • Crafting/Projects
    • Simplicity/Green
    • Faith                     

Yesterday I told you that my word for 2013 is better. I don’t mean it in the crazy I must be better than everyone else sort of way but more of the make better choices, do better than last year sort of way. I hope that become clear as I walk through my marriage and family aspirations for 2013.

This is going to be a crazy year, and with all the crazyness I don’t want to take Mac for granted. This year I want to do better at finding ways of letting Mac know I love/appreciate/respect him. I want to continue to do some publicly on the blog with the Husband challange linky on the last Thursday of every month (Jan 31st this month.) But also just find ways around the house to acknowlage it as well.

 I also want to make sure that Family stays a priority in my life. I didn’t make it down to Iowa as much as I wanted last year and would like to make more of and affort. I know travel might not be the easiest this year but I can at least do better on making birthday cards am sending those out, phone calls and keeping up with everyone on Facebook. I want to do better at staying in contact and seeing my family.

I want to do better at ‘date nights’ this year. We all know they are good for your marriage, so why don’t we do them? My parents do pretty much every Friday night! All I want to do is 1 date out to do whatever,  dinner, movie, show a nice walk downtown to see the sights anything.  It doesn’t have to be expensive or even cost money it just has to be intentionally together.

So there you have it my 3 marriage/family aspirations for 2013:

  • This year I want to do better at finding ways of letting Mac know I love/appreciate/respect him.
  • I want to do better at staying in contact and seeing my family.
  •  I want to do better at ‘date nights’ this year.

  1. Those are some pretty great goals for the marriage/family category! It’s especially going to get a little bit rough for you and Mac as your pregnancy advances and even right after the baby is born. It’s all part of the transition from a couple to a family of three and you two will definitely need to be there for each other when the time comes. Date nights are so, so important after baby arrives because you’ll be exhausted and tired and the lack of sleep will make you easily annoyed with each other but as long as you remember to appreciate the relationship you have, you guys will do great 🙂

    And I know you’ll end up being able to connect with your family more in Iowa because everyone is going to want to meet the baby. It’s really amazing how a tiny person can bring a family together 🙂
