Happy New Year! I can't believe that 2014 is already over. It seems like the year sure flew by. While 2014 was less eventful for my family that 2013 had been, it was a very busy year none the less.
Early 2014 saw us in the grips of bitter cold - M and I made the best of things by going skiing nearly every weekend.
As spring arrived, I lost my grandfather and celebrated the wedding of my best friend - all in the same week.
During summer I participated in 100 Happy Days and found lots of small things to celebrate every day. As usual, the summer went by way to quickly, but the highlight of our summer were three camping trips, one with my parents, one with friends, and one with M's parents.
Summer came to the end with the wedding of my brother and I became a godmother to my cousin's son!
Fall saw me return to work as an adviser at my online school, working with 8th graders again. They sure keep me busy.
The biggest change in our year happened in November when my husband decided he had had enough of the crazy schedule working for the sound and production company and returned to work as an electrician in a neighboring town. It's been an adjustment for us both, but we are enjoying having our weekends together again!
We closed out 2014 listening to our favorite band. M worked for his old company for the night and we rang in the New Year with Brat Pack Radio.
I know I've been absent on here for quite awhile (blame my computer needing to get sent back for repairs the week of Thanksgiving and then scrambling to finish up last minute Christmas gifts), but I have lots of fun things to share with you for the new year. I've been busy while I've been on break from work preparing posts. I'm going to start small, and plan to post at least once a week, if I get enough ideas stocked up, then I'll go for more :) I can't wait to share with you some of my recent craft projects and kitchen successes!
I hope you all have a wonderful new year!
