Goodbye 2014

I'm going to be honest. 2014 was a pretty difficult one. In February D lost his brother suddenly and it was so very, very sad for our family. This was our first out and out experience with someone close to us passing and it was a rough one. My mom also had two surgeries and D's mom had to deal with the pain of losing a son…. so no, not an easy year.

However, we need to focus on the positive and that's what we will do!  More than anything, what this year has reminded us of is how grateful we need to be for those friends and family around us, how much we need to cherish those wonderful everyday moments and make a really, really big deal out of the little celebrations. We made some wonderful friends this year and spent a lot of time with family, both near and far. 

2014 also brought its share of milestones. A started school in September--- okay it's part time, half day school but she was ready for it and not a tear has been shed during morning drop off. After months of begging, we finally acquiesced to violin lessons for C. We also did dance, soccer, swimming and skating and continued music for both kids.We were  blessed with the birth of my sweet nephew, Liam this summer as well.  We didn't travel to any new and exciting places as we spent most of our time in Trinidad for a funeral, a wedding and lots of family time. However, we did manage to get away to the US for a couple weeks though where we visited Atlantic City and D and I were able to spend a couple nights alone for our anniversary in NYC

This has been a great blog year for me. I've made so many sweet blogging friends who often make my day with their kind comments. I learn so many things all the time through my blogging and my friends as well. My blog itself gets as much as 12,500 hits in a month. Not bad for a newbie!

So, yes this has been a tough year but it's also been a blessed one filled with family, health, sweet memories and lots of love. 

Happy New Year, everyone!

  3. I love this. Because you were so honest. I think most of us look at the New Year as a fresh start and that all will be great, but that's not really the case for most of us. Life brings soooo many ups and downs. You are handling it all beautifully. I can only imagine. This has been a good year for us, but there have definitely been more than our fair share of "hiccups". Happy New Year, beautiful friend! Keep soaking up the sun...can't wait to see photos :) xoxoxo

  4. Best wishes for a wonderful 2015! Keep on blogging...I love reading! :)

  6. Happy New Year! I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope 2015 is filled with health and happiness for you guys.


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
