Looking Back & Moving Forward

What was it Charles Dickens said? It was the best of times, it was the worst of times?
Maybe that's a little bit over-the-top, but that's kind of how I feel about 2014.

There were a lot of laughs and a lot of smiles.
A lot of excitement and a lot of pride in accomplishing things I've always wanted.
There were a lot of tears and a lot of frustration and confusion.

It's just one of those things. I mean, that's how life works, isn't it?

2014 was a year of learning for me.
It was full of experiences that taught me what I want - and what I don't want - in life, in love, in so many things.

Bring it on, 2015. I'm ready for you.
Please be full of adventures, happiness and more to learn.

ghost of christmas yet to come

hey you... it's been awhile.

as i sit here, christmas winding down, i can't help but look forward to future christmases. i absolutely can't wait to do holidays as our little family. playing Santa for our littles sounds like the most magical thing. i can't wait to spoil you and them with the things that make you happy.

the baking and decorating and cooking and eating for days on end, sign me up. i want to spend the day watching movies and playing games and taking naps and enjoying our families.

it's a normal thing, I'm sure, but holidays alone are getting hard. every year i find myself saying "next year, for sure. i'm almost there." i'd sure like to believe that this time.

wherever you are, know that i think about you often. i'm excited for all these christmases yet to come!
