Simplify - A Theme for 2014

I've been thinking a lot about how I want to tackle 2014.  I like challenges and learning new things and I'm sure there will be lots of these opportunities.  But, I decided I'd like a theme for the year instead of a list of resolutions.  My 2014 life theme will be Simplify.

This is not a new idea to our family, Lonnie and I have strived to live a simplified life for years.  Less is definitely more.  I want to stream line my life so that I have more quality time with my kids, hubby, family, friends, church community, and Jesus.  I'm going to be seeking ways to live a simple and efficient life.  I want less clutter in my home, spend less on things, and waste less time on meaningless activities. I hope you'll join me for another year, as I share my Simple California Life (but, hopefully even more simplified).

2013 was a great year for my little blog.  But, I have a feeling 2014 is going to be even better.  I'm starting the year a lot more confident and experienced.  And I've already seen great blessing this early in the year.  For one, I get to go to Alt Summit this month.  I'm going as Collectively's Correspondent.  How cool is that?

Have you set some goals and resolutions for the year?  I'd love to hear where you hope 2014 will take you.


  1. This is so nice! What a great idea to set a "theme" for the year instead of a list of resolutions. I've found that sometimes resolutions can be too specific, and I feel guilty when I don't complete something on a list, haha. If I were to come up for my own goal theme for 2014, I would have to say "growth." I'm working on ways to grow my blog, and I'd like to continue to grow as a person, particularly in personal relationships and self-care. Thank you for the inspiration, and happy 2014!

    1. I like that, "growth". There is no way your beautiful blog isn't going to grow. It's destined for great things, I know it. I too feel guilt about unfinished projects and lists. I'm giving myself a break this year. I tend to be really hard on myself, but this year I'm aiming for SIMPLE!

  2. Jeran that is so sweet! Ditto to you---just since I've started following you your blog has gotten way bigger and more awesome! I'm hard on myself too, it's good to find a balance. Simple growth! Simple growth!
