There is a new Bachelor that just started on ABC and I didnt even know about it until someone posted it on Facebook. I am losing my touch guys over here in China and I am only two months in. As I may have mentioned before or if you follow along on my Instagram, we are moving into our new house here in Shanghai next week and I can not be more excited about it. It is the finally piece we need to feel settled here in this new country we will finally receive all of the stuff we shipped here from the US ( our pictures our blankets our sheet cups bowls ohhh how I have missed them ) I also have always had a love for interior design so any chance I have to decorate a new house I jump all over immediately. This house I am going in a different direction than I normally would go in because it is so temporary I decided why not go a little trendier and have a little bit of fun with it. I 100 percent will be sharing in the process with you guys as we complete the house. Here are some pictures I used as inspiration for this new home, obviously found on Pinterest.

Its a brand new year in a brand new city and I feeling energized and excited about it. So much to explore to taste to learn. In the past years I have written down my goals and tried really hard to stick to unrealistic resolutions that I never really meet so this year I am just aiming to be better than I was last year. To worry less and to savor the sweet times a little more. To devote my time and energy towards people who make me happy and lift me up and are genuinely happy to see me happy. To soak in ever sweet giggle from my little one while they are young cuddly and small and actually want to hang out with me. Most of all I just want to find happiness in this new country and make the most of the years we are here instead of counting down the time until we are home. This experience is tough and full of ups and downs but I know that it is once in a lifetime and I am lucky to be on the wild ride so I might as well put my feet up and enjoy all the ups and downs that come my way. Wishing you and yours a happy happy New Year.
