1. Happy New Year – I can’t believe we are in 2017. Its utterly crazy how fast the years are passing. I don’t make any resolutions either. I think January is a hard month as it is without trying to stick to goals that are mostly out of reach. I love that your blog is evolving and a little more of the incredible lady I know is coming through. xxx

  2. Happy new year Hayley. I too have just written a post about reflections on my 2017 – it feels like so much change. It must be hard with your Mum moving away but hopefully it is for the best. Here’s to the new year! xx

    • Thanks Jess and Happy new Year, I think my Mum will be fine, we’ll miss her but I would hate for that to hold her back from what she wants to do! Lets hope 2017 is a fun one xx

  3. Happy new year to you all Hayley. I love this post. I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting recently about myself too. I realised I wasn’t even taking any photos with just me in them. They always have one child or other and it’s rare I’m on my own. Taking each day as it comes sounds perfect. Well done to your mum for taking that big step. I know from when my best friend went, it’s scary at first but you become so much closer and you’ll be on whatsapp all the time, even more than before. Plus it’s a great excuse to visit!

    • Exactly, I can’t wait to go and stay with her. It doesn’t seem to bad at the moment but I know once she’s gone ti will be strange. But I know we’ll be in touch just as much, espeically with facetime etc, like you’ve said we’ll probably make more of an effort. Yes to more photos with just you, I’m going to try and do the same this year!

  4. What lovely thoughts on your family. We’re still in the thick of it at the moment with a 26m and an 8m old and it is soooo hectic at times. But I also know it will calm down soon and I’ll look back at this time and wonder how it flew by so quickly. You’ve reminded me to slow down and appreciate the little things. I’m so with you on creating experiences and memories. Good luck with finding your new focus once the boys are in nursery. What an exciting thought to have a bit of time to focus on what makes you happy. Ironic that you probably never had enough time to blog when they were small and now they are growing, you have more time. Such is life eh?!

  5. I loved reading this post Hayley and happy new year to you and your gorgeous boys. I really admire your mum for moving abroad, and I am sure you will miss her terribly, and thank goodness for face time and social media. And if she starts a blog I am sure she will be just as fantastic at writing as her daughter. Here is to 2017 xx

  6. This was such a gorgeous read. I loved it when you said you are happier than ever. Isn’t that the best? and to have three young boys to share it with. September will come in no time, and it will be nice to have some proper down time. I think it is great that you will be stepping out from behind your children. I’m really excited to hear more, and a really Happy New Year to you all xx
    p.s. I loved reading about your mum too. What a woman, just going for something. I hope you don’t miss her too much.

  7. Aaah happy new year lovely girl!! I feel the same as you — so many things are happening in the wider world that really put our own little lives in perspective and make us realise how easy we have things. Sorry to hear that your mum is moving away — although these days, with Facetime/Skype etc I’m sure it will be much easier xx
