Happy New Year and welcome 2015! I hope that you have had a wonderful holiday season celebrating with family and friends.
My Christmas vacation was 8 days non-stop, from the minute we woke at 6:00 am until well after 11:00 every night. My entire family was together in the same house with 3 kids, 6 dogs, and 9 adults. Some days it was crazy, like Christmas Eve when 6 additional relatives were suppose to come for dinner and 15 showed up instead, or the 26th when my step father planned a family dog show with 15 dogs and 39 people for lunch!
We cooked, and baked and ate and drank and ate some more. We went for long walks, caroled, went on a Christmas scavenger hunt, attended two parties, visited friends and believe it or not found some time to relax.
And in the midst of the Angry Birds, Lego's, every imaginable toy and character from Frozen I re-discovered what was really important in this world...family, friends, and love.
I try not to write posts on my blog that are "too personal" as they seem to scare people away, but 2014 has been the worst year of my personal, professional and spiritual life. I think you could probably sense that by my posts, or non-posts.
I cannot wait to slam the door on 2014 and open a new and better chapter of my life in 2015.
I am not the same person that I was a year ago because everything thing I believed in I have had to question and... maybe that is a good thing.
I am happy to say that as I move into the new year things are beginning to look brighter. I started my own artisan leather company( I will post about it later), I have renewed my faith, I now make myself a priority instead of putting myself dead last, and I am healthier and happier than I have been in a long time.
So today I wish you a blessed, happy, healthy and wondrous 2015! I hope that everything you hope and wish for yourself comes to fruition, be that writing a book, publishing a poem, having your home showcased in a magazine, recovering from an illness, repairing a broken heart, having a child and so many more beautiful and wonderful things.
Thank you for visiting my small corner of blog world! Thank you for your friendship, always kind comments, and your inspiration to be a better person!
Happy New Year! Happy 2015!
