Goodbye, 2014! Hello, 2015!

Another year has come and gone-it’s amazing how fast they fly by!

This was another good year, surrounded by fun, busy at work, and amazed by my kiddo. I look back with a combination of wishing I had done more, but not sure where I would have fit it in.

On the work front, 2014 brought my 11th year at my company, and the start to feeling like the new program is starting to settle in (that one only took a year!), as well as a lot of growth and change.

On the fun front, it brought Nick and I the chance to work with a local brewery to host fun events. I was able to curate art events with local business and breweries, and it brought the 10th annual South Park Art’s Art Under $100 event. That event was attended by 2400 people!  I did crafts, I grew food, I raised chickens.

2014 brought an exciting road trip to Yosemite to spread my Dad’s ashes, as well as a few short trips here and there. It also sent Nick to the ER and ultimately to surgery for a ruptured Achilles tendon during a soccer match.

The biggest and best part of 2014? Watching my daughter eat on her own. I could have done nothing else, but that and been perfectly content with the year. After so much hard work, we feel good about where we’re at with her eating. Sure, there’s work to be done, but it’s just amazing to be able to eat with her.

What’s on tap for 2015?

Much of the same, hopefully minus injuries.

I’m planning out some camping trips, a trip to Kansas, and lots of trips out eating with kiddo.  I can’t wait to just do more this year.

What are your hopes and plans for 2015?

Yours in happiness,
