This year we had a baby and our lives changed forever.
There’s nothing else that stands out like that, and the rest of the year is kind of a blur, but going back over my archives I was reminded of some other things that happened this year:
>I started a book blog, which I have sorely neglected, but I’m glad I have it and I plan to revive it in the coming year.
>My best friend Becca, her husband Micah, and their children came to visit.
>We took a trip to South Carolina to visit my aunt & uncle.
>Our dog Oliver went to live with my parents and our dog Eddie dealt with some severe anxiety issues.
>The church that I have attended since high school and that David grew up in closed down due to some really sad circumstances, and we are still dealing with the after effects.
>My brother David got married to Maggie (yay!)
>David’s grandparents moved to town from Pennsylvania.
>A lovely Christmas happened:
It was a good year.
I usually love the start of a new year. I always make resolutions because that kind of thing works for me. This year I’m not doing that, only because I’m still so far behind and exhausted from life in general that I’m not prepared. There are some things mulling around in my head that I want to do (revive the book blog, mini scrapbook each season, blog makeover, overhaul our budget, more time with David, cook several times a week, exercise, etc.) but I need to step back and get some perspective first.
My 101 goals in 1001 days is also coming to a close this month, and there are some items that I could complete without too much effort beforehand, but I don’t think I will. I just need to rest right now and get my bearings. Sometimes it’s so nice just to cut yourself a break.
More soon, I hope!
