A couple of months ago, Saren and I were talking about which Power of Moms activities are most enjoyable and exciting for us.
We decided that podcasting together was at the top of the list.
We spend lots of time talking about our organization's needs, and sometimes we just want to talk about life and motherhood and personhood, and all the thoughts that are swirling around in our heads.
So we decided to start our own weekly Power of Moms radio show--and this past Monday, we made our first recording. It was SO fun!

During the show, we talked about what moments from 2012 were most memorable and what we want to focus on for 2013.
I was scrolling through my photos during the call, and these are two photos that really stood out.
First is a photo I snapped at the beach last summer when my brother and dad were helping my mom walk across the sand. (She's had a hip and knee replacement, so sand-walking isn't her favorite, but look how happy this made her!) Spending that afternoon in a beach chair with my family by my side was a treasure.
This second photo is from a Mommy-Daughter night that Grace and I attended together at church. We wore our jammies and painted our nails orange and learned about yoga and hairstyling. We ate snacks and visited with our friends and had such a memorable time together.
Although a lot of great things have resulted from the hours I've invested in writing and emailing, it's moments with the people I love that mean the most.
So this year, once I finally catch up from Christmas break, I plan to ease up on the non-interpersonal tasks and increase the beautiful personal experiences that make life so sweet.
