Happy New Year friends. Hope you did exactly what you wanted last night. We went to a grown-up party – I slapped on some make-up and everything. It was loads of fun. In fact, fun is what we’ve been having since Thanksgiving. Eating, drinking, merriment making fun *burp*.
This was the sky when we finally headed out of the house today. Well…this was the sky after a couple of filters but you get the point.
2013 was a year of change for our family – and we rocked it. In the moment the changes seemed scary and jarring – but looking back they were exactly what we needed. We shook off the negative to make room for the positive. Was it perfect? No. But that’s how we like it. Perfectly imperfect.
I have no idea what this new year will hold for me or my family. I’m sure there will be successes, failures, laughter, tears, music and fun. There will be a 16th birthday, an 11-year-old boy in the house, a new driver’s license, family gatherings, an 18th wedding anniversary and two adults sinking deeper into their 40s. How will it all go down? I dunno. But I promise you one thing. I promise you that I’ll blog every step of the way.
Thank you so much for the year behind us and here’s a toast to our year ahead! Together. Whether you like it or not. Ahem.
