Goodbye 2014 Not sorry to see you go...

This past year had been a very somber and difficult year.  I said goodbye to five beautiful ladies this year,  ran my second 5K,  joined Crossfit in February,  and packed up my youngest for college.

Some of the things I did for the first time this year was to tailgate at a college football game. Attended our first marriage retreat, which sounds nicer then it was, but it's a good healthy check up for our 20 year relationship.  Realized I need to get more organized at home because the only person I would be helping is me.  And God knows, I need the help.  Definitely a retrospective year.

The blessings this past year felt over shadowed by the obstacles we encountered but looking back those blessings are enormous......see for yourself.

My goddaughter's son Lucas.  He is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen.

Friends have been constant and I have felt loved all year long.. I forget to count that blessing at times.

Friends from Pennsylvania and Long Island

Carmen and me!

Paige and I at Houston Zoo Lights for my 48th.

Game Day in Gainesville, I love this man.

Can you guess which ones are "fabulous", yup all of them!!

I am looking forward to 2015 more than anyone knows.

I decided to really challenge myself and set goals (Something I rarely do), here they are:

  • Learn something new...I haven't figured out what yet, maybe photoshop or calligraphy
  • Prepare more meals at home and be more organize in the kitchen
  • Simplify my life. (This will be the hardest for me)
  • No shopping for clothes or shoes for an entire year.

More post to come, I have a lot to catch up on!

Happy New Year Friends!

Shelby and Mom
