What a crazy year of up's and down's this was! I don't always share a lot of personal things on here, especially anything negative, because I like keeping this a happy space. I thought today would be a great time to look back on this past year, and all of the craziness that went on in our lives, because this was one memorable year!
We started the year off on a weird note, with my husband's car having been stolen and totaled. We had a crazy winter, full of blizzards (I don't mind snow one bit!) The kids and I were in a pretty big car accident in a parking lot, which ended up with my car being totaled and a whole lot of bumps and bruises, but all three of us being ok! We went to Florida two times and had so much fun in the sun! While we were there, Avery learned to swim and Greyson definitely stepped up his water game. Avery finished pre-school and spent a lot of her summer at different camps, for the first time ever. In the middle of the summer, I went for my annual skin check and was told they found a melanoma type spot. I had surgery almost right after and everything is ok now! I have a lovely scar running down half of my leg that is still healing, but it's a great reminder to ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN! Literally, right after that, we moved to a new house (I promise pictures are coming!) Avery started kindergarden a couple of weeks later, with Greyson starting preschool right after. We have spent the better part of the last couple of months adjusting to the new schedule of full day kindergarden and two kids in school and full of activities.
I learned a lot this past year - always wear your seat belt, you're never too old to chase your dream career, you can meet the greatest friends when you least expect, and the friends you have had forever are always a blessing, wine should always be fully stocked, sunscreen should be your new best friend, moving is a massive pain, kids grow up way too fast, and blanket scarves are the best accessory ever.
Happy, happy New Years Eve! I hope it is FABULOUS! xo
