Oh 2014, you were a rough year indeed. With only 3 days left in the year, you can’t help but reflect on what happened in the prior year. I know there has been a lot of radio silence on here this past year and I do apologize. Our little family has been through the wringer of life with illness and big life changes(Sorry to be so cryptic, but these issues are not mine and therefore are not mine to share). I have been helping deal with the issues, keeping the morale up for the family, and basically staying strong. Most days were simply hard and you can piece a lot of my feelings together by reading quotes of the day. All was not doom and gloom though. We had fun adventures up north during the summer. Cooper and his friends always keep us entertained. Tyson and Teddy are little rays of sunshine. Yes,2014 was rough, but it didn’t break my family. We are a good, solid, unit and for that, I am forever grateful. As I reflect on this past year, I will remember the sweet and the sour. I am hopeful for 2015 and all it has to offer. I am making personal goals and doing my vision board for 2015. Some of my personal goals are to balance life better(I worked far too much and saw little sunlight most days), work on my health, and blog more. What items are on your 2015 vision board? What are your hopes for the new year? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Thank you for letting me bend your ear and thank you for coming to our little site. Here is to 2015*Raises glass for toast* …May it be an exciting year filled with good changes, lots of smiles, health, and fun times.
