Man, what a whirlwind 2017 has been. I started the year with my ongoing struggle with infertility, and I am ending the year in a new house, with two perfect baby boys.

It's crazy how fast life can change, isn't it?

Just when you doubt that your life will be anything that you hoped for, the Big Man above brings all of your wildest dreams to fruition. If you don't believe me, you can read this post where I thought my world was crumbling, and the next day found out I was pregnant.

I could not have imagined in a million years that my heart would be as full as it is right now.

That brings me to the new year - 2018. What will it bring? What do I wish for in 2018?

I've been thinking about this lately, and honestly, I wish to be present above all things (if you haven't read Present Over Perfect, I highly recommend you do). I have two boys that are growing at rapid speed; I go back to work in just a few days (tear), and my life will begin to blaze by faster than it currently does.

I want to remember how my boys smell. How Knox gives me a one sided smile when I say "heeeeey, Knoxie", and Liam with his overly dramatic sneeze that can't help but bring a smile to my face.

I want 2018 to be full of joy, and smiles, and a full heart; exactly how I feel in this moment.

And most of all, I want to be my best self. To trust that the boys will be well taken care of while I'm at work, to know that I am working to provide them with a great life, to be 110% focused on work when I am at work, and my family when I am at home.

All in all, I want 2018 to be about the small things. Remove the drama, the stress, the craziness. Embrace the life I have been given, and document the hell out of it.

Now tell me friends, what do you wish for in the new year?
