Happy Persian New Year

Happy Persian New Year everyone!

This has always been one of my favorite times of the year. Seriously though, how fun is this holiday?? Two weeks of fun including jumping over fires (yes- that’s actually a thing), setting up a haft-seen table, spring cleaning, cooking and eating, buying new clothes, coloring eggs, and picnicking are such a great way to start off the new year and beginning of Spring.

I always prefer making new year resolutions during Nowruz instead of the New Year’s in January. I’m lucky I have two New Years to celebrate, and a second chance at a do over in case I butcher my January goals and resolutions.

This year my goals are short and sweet:

Spend more time teaching the kids, creating fun learning experiences for them

&

Losing that pregnancy weight!!!!!!!!!!

I even made some goals for hubby because I’m annoying like that:

MAKE MORE $$$$$$$$ (with my support of course)

&

Lose that pregnancy weight also! Isn’t it funny how hubbys gain weight during their wives pregnancies too?

So sadly we won’t be celebrating Nowruz this year. I’m either a go all out or do nothing at all kind of person, and with caring for a newborn along with two toddlers, something has to give. Any spare minute I have is spent sleeping. I forgot how much work a newborn is!!!

To all those celebrating this wonderful holiday, we wish you a happy healthy and prosperous new year!
