Bloggies! It’s about to get very hectic around here for me, as I’m sure it’s going to be the same for you. In fact our first Christmas celebration is this Sunday with Kevin’s mom and step dad. After that it’s a complete whirl wind until Jan 2nd. Not a day with a moment to rest. lol. So I’m starting this a little early this year. I normally do a year in review post each year, but this format is new to me. I got the idea from CW over at Tilting at Windmills, who in turn got the idea from another fellow blogger, and so on so forth. I’m sure it’s traveling around the interwebs. lol.
Anyway… a look back on 2013, plus a smattering of photos, and retro posts will fill your feeds, but I’m going to be taking a blogging break. Have a wonderful holiday season Bloggies! I’ll see you next year! 😀
1 What did you do in 2013 that you’d never done before?
2013 was a big year for me all around. Growing into my new roll as a mother really gave me an entirely new perspective on pretty much everything. I think the most poignant thing was taking responsibility for my reckless youth. I’d spend so many years being angry, and hateful towards so many people that it was quite literally poisoning my life and eating me from the inside out. Once I stopped blaming others and looked at myself a lot of very confusing things became clear, and a lot of pointless drama was resolved.
2 Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Resolutions… nope. I’ve never actually taken the time to make resolutions on New Years. My goals tend to be long term spanning much more than just 365 days, so I’ve never thought about it. I might make some this year, but I won’t know until about 11:59pm on December 31st. Lol.
3 Did anyone close to you give birth?
There were so many babies born this year, and it was all so exciting!! There were also quite a few pregnancies announced this year. I can’t wait to meet all these new little people and watch them grow and learn. Parenthood is the most exciting, and challenging thing I have ever experienced personally, and I’m so excited for my friends and family who get to share the experience both with me and their partners. It’s a whole different world the moment you lay eyes on that teeny little person who equals a mountain of responsibility and joy.
