The past few days have brought a lot of reflection in my household. We’ve all been so sick (it seems like everyone is getting the flu!) and winter break has looked a lot different this year. Instead of snowball fights and hot chocolate, its been cuddles and chicken soup. Charlotte was the first to go down with croup…and let me tell you how scary that was!! She was struggling with every breath and I was freaked out. The doctor gave her some medicine to help with the inflammation and we thought we were on the mend. Fast forward 2 days, and Charlotte (poor girl) wakes up with the flu! I was in the flu’s path next…and when mama gets sick, you know life is pretty stressful!! Thank goodness I have an AMAZING partner in Michael. He not only took care of me all night, but called our nanny, who is supposed to be on break, and arranged for her to watch the girls for an entire day so I could lock myself in my room. There is no way I could have gotten through that without Michael and Ashley (our nanny). Now as I sit here typing this, Madelyn is cuddled next to me fighting a 103.5 temp, going on 3 days now. I’m SO ready for this part of life to be over and for everyone to be healthy!! So send some healthy thoughts our way, friends!!
Between all the cuddles and movies, I’ve thought a lot about where I’d like to see Natalie Colgan Photography go this year. These goals are really scary for me to share publicly because I’m SO afraid of failing. But I also believe that I need to speak my truth and hopefully putting these thoughts on paper and on the interwebs will yield positive results. Another part of this is to keep me accountable. Life is busy and as a teacher, mama, and wife, things can get pushed to the back burner pretty easily. I will refer to this post often to keep my motivation and remember that I CAN do this!
So…here we go!
So that’s it friends. At least for now…I’m sure I’ll be adding to these as I continue to reflect. These are attainable goals and I know I have the support to make them happen.
I wish you all a blessed 2018 filled with love and light.
