Farewell 2013…

2013 you have been so good to us… I almost hate to see you go.  This year was without a doubt one of the very best… I mean how can I say it was anything else… it was the year our baby girl got a second chance at life.  This year was a game changer for our family in many ways.  That doesn’t mean that it was without its share of heartache and stress… we had plenty of that… but there was always that underlying happiness… that feeling that our prayers had been answered and that the only place to go was up.  Of course it was not all smooth sailing, but given what we have faced in years past everything feels manageable.

2013 was a year of change in many aspects.  It brought new schedules, routines, and fears…some things stayed the same but mostly we embraced a lot of change.  We realized who and what was important.  We made those things a priority and eliminated the rest.  I stopped stressing the small things and really started loving and living life again.  We gained a new sense of normalcy. 

I am excited and hopeful that 2014 will continue to bring us new opportunities, good health and fun!!

I’m off to pop some champagne…and kiss my love at midnight!
