Thinking about 2014 and all the blessings, burdens, hurts and accomplishments. Last year was good to me. It flew by. All of a sudden it was Fall and I looked back and wondered how.
God answered many prayers, mainly my fear and anxiety struggles and healing my baby. I’m in awe of Him and pray with thanks and gratitude as I feel so unworthy of what I have. My husband and my children. Ugh. I still can’t believe it.
I continued to seek healthier home/food/lifestyle options. I turned 33, gave birth to my second son, quit my job at Nordstrom, started my business, officially became a work from home momma, lost my baby weight, chopped off all my hair, walked away from a toxic friend, became even more in love with coffee (if that’s even possible), strengthened many friendships, (the friends who are fellow coffee addicts, ya know what they say, “birds of a feather”) A lot of highs and lows. Wins and losses. Successes and Failures. Too many to mention but they all continue to make me feel like me. I know who I am. I feel good in my skin and I’m confident in my choices and my future planning. That’s something that I thought I had in my 20’s but realize now that I have it, that I was wrong.
The highlight of last year for me, I mean THE highlight was our 8 year wedding anniversary. My husband took me shopping and helped me pick out an ensemble. He surprised me with a romantic dinner date in a beautiful restaurant that served mouth-watering, delicious food. I ordered the fish and couscous and he got the wild boarSchnitzel. It was our firstSchnitzel and it wasgoooooood. Dirty martini’s with a giggly, flirty conversation. Afterwards we had a special salsa dance lesson before we danced the night away. As I type this I feel all warm and giddy. This was the first date that Jared planned and executed from start to finish and that he surprised me was the cherry on top. I LOVE surprises. We don’t get out much just the two of us and it felt so good to let loose and see each other in that light again. It had been too long. That night was the most romantic night of my life. I’ll remember it forever.
Thank you babe for sweeping me off my feet. I love you.
