Hello and thanks for stopping by! I am really excited to join the blogging world. I have been a blog reader for a long time and as I approach my 31st birthday, I thought I would take the plunge and write my own. Thus, www.lifewithpizzazz.com was born. I am challenging myself to record the daily adventures of our little family and keep this online journal of thoughts, ideas, dreams, and memories. Thanks for joining us on this journey!
30 was full of a lot of excitement and life changing events…having a baby, going from a working professional to working as a stay at home Mom, moving across states, attending the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, CA, and running my first ever half marathon.
As I look ahead to what 31 has in store for me, I am looking forward to settling in and enjoying our time as a family with Caroline, our curious toddler. She lives life to the fullest each day and reminds us to do the same.
So on the eve of my 31st birthday, here are 31 things that I am looking forward to in the coming year…
