What had happened was…
I know I have been gone far too long. It wasn’t on purpose, that’s for sure. When I tell you this transition has rocked my world and turned it upside down, I’m not lying. Creating my new normal has taken more time that I expected. My friends keep reminding me that it’s only been two months but I am pretty hard on myself and really want everything in sync like yesterday. To that end, I will be a bit easier on myself in this new year. I call it “giving myself grace”. Speaking of the new year. Happy New Year!!!
2013 will definitely go down as the year of transitions for me. Aside from contemplating baby number three, I shared my dad’s “who knew” secret, spilled the beans about my first book, lost my job, and started a new life.
All of that alone is enough to make me take a giant WOO-SAH! Last year had a lot going on. I like to think that it all prepared me for what this year has to offer. I’m ready for 2014 to bring it! I have lots of ideas and projects on my plate. Of course, I have some ideas for this space as well as an e-book I’ve been writing. I have really dove into this project as it’s about my top two passions : dreams and motherhood. I’ll keep you posted on that whole thing.
To bring in 2014 we headed down to La Jolla, just outside of San Diego. We had a great time with friends. It was the first time I’d done any rock climbing while wearing my baby girl.
I was a little nervous. She was having fun. Figures. We took the kids to an aquarium and science center and just really enjoyed the city and each other. We spent New Year’s Eve hanging out at the beach and staring at the sea lions that were just lounging.
I love this view. I could have stood in this spot for hours…
We had plans to bring in the new year like grown ups. Um, I fell asleep and woke up at midnight to all the shouting and celebrating. Yes, I was all kinds of turnt up.
How have you been. Anything special to bring in the New Year? Any big plans for 2014?
