2016

Its been so long since I've written anything on the blog. The reason is my entire purpose of writing here was to document our home building adventures. If you've been following along the last 3 years we have been building non stop. We've missed out on vacations, important family functions, and some serious time to ourselves.

Then we had a baby and reality hit us in the face. It wasn't that Dominik took up all of our time and we were overwhelmed it was that we wanted to slow down to ensure we didn't miss those special moments with him. Safe to say he was a blessing in disguise, he showed us that constantly running on empty was the most unhealthy thing we could have been doing to ourselves. He reminded us to slow down and soak in the special moments.

Plans for 2016 will include.....

 Mini road trips with Dominik - Ontario has so many lovely towns and beaches that are within easy driving distances to home.

  Overdue road trip vacation to our favorite little town in Florida.

Staying accountable to my health. I have always struggled with my health but I really want to stay on track this time. I have been tracking all of my food intake on My Fitness Pal. In order to get in at least 3 workouts a week I have been using the Nike Training App and also doing some home workout DVD's.

Continue our work on the Forever Home. Obviously we still have a home to finish as you can see in the above picture. Hopefully I can get back into things here on the blog and start documenting our journey of building this home ourselves.

I'm looking forward to 2016. We've sat and talked many hours about our plans and what our future holds for us and I feel like this year will be nothing short of amazing.
