New year, new look

I am still hopeful that this year is going to be bring great things even though there are some stresses in my life that I could be without right now but I am not going to dwell on them at the moment. It is what is!
So how do you look my new blog look? Thank you to Franchesca at Small Bird Studio for once again working so hard to create this beautiful design. She just keeps on amazing me.

So do you guys resolutions that you are sticking with or already gave up on? I did not make any resolutions this year but I am determined to be a better person. It seems like the past 2 years I have not been myself for obvious reasons. I kind miss me, the old me will never be but I would like to find myself again. I am tired of just living day to day. I want to be hopeful for the future like I once used to be. I guess I am off to a great start because I have allowed myself to enjoy this pregnancy and embrace every second of it without always having to worry if she is going to be ok or not. Step one was buying the crib and little by little I get things here and there. So many people have already gotten her things, she is so spoiled this girl! I am trying to work on my feelings of guilt since I wasn't able to do these things when I was pregnant with Sami. It is still hard but I tell myself this is how God planned my life and I will just run with it. He knows how it will all end and until then I will just continue embracing this life of mine. Sami is never far from my thoughts and my heart. Not one second goes by that I do not think of her. Being a mom to a child here on earth and in heaven is hard work.

The blog looks beautiful. I honestly don't know how you are gonna be a better person though Lisette, you are such an amazing friend and mother (full of faith and grace, always willing to offer support and love). Anyone who reads here knows this about you.

i think it is wonderful that people have been showering your little one with gifts. she is so loved by so many who cannot wait to see her. i have the opposite issue in my world over here. People don't bring anything for the twins, and didn't want to have a sprinkle (mini - shower) for me because they are so convinced something else is going to go wrong. It is really hard for me to be around that kind of negativity, because I am trying so hard to focus on these babies being healthy. I guess that is my new year's resolution - to have healthy babies.

sorry this comment is rambling.

What a pretty new look! I always love looking at Sami's beautiful photos - she was just a living doll.
I read your past 2 posts and love the Wishing Tree, your Christmas ornament & doll , and that fantastic brochure.
Sending hugs to you & your family - Emma, too.
Always remembering Sami...
