I’m not gonna lie to ya’ll, 2014 was a mixed bag. The ups included attending my niece’s beautiful wedding in New York and traveling on a second mommy daughter trip to Atlanta with my younger daughter, Miss A. Travel is always is something I look forward to and I love sharing that love with my girls. The downs included losing my stepmother in June. Miss C broke her ankle in September and wasn’t able to play soccer all fall…the first time in years. This fall we’ve watched our old boy Jack’s health deteriorate and we’ll have to make a decision about him very soon which is going to really, really hurt. Life just happened, as it does to all of us, but boy sometimes does life happen.
2015, what are you gonna bring?
So far this year is starting off fantastically with a couple of fun opportunities, including a family travel blogger trip to the Smokies later this week. I’m really looking forward to exploring some new (to me) restaurants and attractions in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Despite growing up in Middle Tennessee, I have only been to Gatlinburg and the Smokies a couple of times.
I hope to be more grounded this year and not so in my own head that I stress about everything. I hope to be more focused and more deliberate with my words. I also hope to finally put on a bikini this summer and feel good about it. I’ve been planking ya’ll. PLANKING. And let me tell you, with three dogs that’s a challenge as they totally want to know what the heck I’m doing down on the floor. (Ha!)
As far as 2014, I’m ready to let it go and embrace each and every second of 2015 as a brand new opportunity. If this week is any indication of the direction 2015 is going in, then it’s going to be a fantastic year.
What are your goals for 2015?
