Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself...

anyone else singing Jay-Z in their head right now? No? Just me? Oh well....

Today is Show & Tell Tuesday with Andrea and our topic is Reintroductions & Resolutions! What a great way to start the year off :) 

For those of you who are new here, my name is Bri & I am...
  • in my late 20's.
  • married to my best friend of over 11 years, Eric. We started dating in my senior year of high school & have been together ever since! 
  • a mama to two sweet girls! My Ella is 3 years old & sweet Lady Olivia is almost 6 months old! The girls are my everything, even though they're the spitting image of their father. 
  • a middle school special education teacher, specializing in English. 
  • a competitive cheerleading coach for the school I work at. 
  • an iced tea addict. 
  • a fitness lover.
  • struggling to fit everything into the day... just keeping it real ;) 
I feel like that's really oversimplifying things, but that's me in a nutshell! 

And as far as resolutions go, I haven't made any big, year-long ones. Instead, I plan to keep up my monthly goals posts. They're so much more manageable & keep me focused! However, I did read an awesome post by Ashley at The Shine Project that challenged me to create a mantra for my year. I've been letting it marinate & really thinking about how I want to live my life in 2016. After a lot of deliberation, I've decided to go with....

Pursue Joy. 

I want to go after what makes me happy in 2016. It may not always be the most practical option. It may not always make other people happy. But I really want to focus on what brings me joy this year - time with my family, coaching a sport that I love, the feel of sweat on my skin after a hard workout. Those are the things that make me happy, why not make them my priority? So there may be some weeks where you see me a little less, and that's because I'm out pursuing joy with the people who bring so much joy to my life!
