goodbye best year of my life

Tuesday, December 31, 2013


Tonight we say farewell to 2013.  It's bittersweet for me.  2013 was, by far, the best year of my life.  

2013 was the year we bought our home.  The home where we will hopefully watch are babies grow.
2013 was the year I carried my baby girl in my belly.  
2013 was the year where I really became aware of what goes in to my body.  I began making healthy decisions in order to feel my best instead of solely to look my best.
2013 was the year I met my 4th nephew.  And the year I shared memories my other nephews.
2013 was the year I met my daughter.  The year I held her tiny hands for the first time.  The year I kissed her soft cheeks.
2013 was the year I fell more in love with my husband than I ever thought possible.
It was the year I watched as he became a father.  I saw a tender, softer and more protective side than before.
2013 was the year I became a mother.  A role that has forever changed my heart and soul.
It was the year I gave birth.  Something that has always intrigued and scared me, but something I overcame.
2013 was the year where I watched sweet friends say 'I do'.  Shared laughs over red wine.  And tears over the phone.

2013 was a good year.  A great year.  My favorite year yet.  But with each day, life gets sweeter.  Sure there are hard things to face.  Things I may not always talk about on here, but overall life is good.  And I am so blessed.  And something tells me 2014 is only going to get sweeter.


I'm making some changes for sure.  Not resolutions, but goals.  I've been working on Lara Casey's Goal-setting series for the past week and over the next week or so I'll be sharing my goals and dreams for 2014.  Have you made any resolutions?  Anyone else jumping in with Lara's series?
