I can not believe that today is the last day of 2014. It seems like just yesterday that we were ringing in 2014 with champagne, a hockey game, and a few too many cosmos (oops). The first day of 2014 I woke up in the late morning (with a small headache), had breakfast with Parker, and drove to my parents so that I could take my mom to a few out of town doctor's appointments. I really do remember that first day of this year like it was yesterday, and it's hard to believe that it's already 365 days later.
Does that ever freak you out? The fact that 365 days can pass by in what seems like the blink of an eye. I mean, at the time it seems like the Mondays or the working lates or the weekends alone are just dragging by, until you look back on the past year of your life and realize it's over before you even know it.
Sure 2014 had it's ups and downs but I think that overall it was a good year for me. Plus, how boring would it be if this roller-coaster we call life never went up or down?
I turned 26 and am embracing being in my late twenties. I have noticed that I don't get carded as much...
I gained a sister-in-law. The best sister-in-law.
We celebrated 4 years of marriage.
I kept blogging and enjoying the writing process while documenting my life.
I started a job that I love.
I brought back the bangs and realized that, although they are work, totes worth it.
I got a DSLR camera and took advantage of that as much as possible.
I reconnected with friends that I had lost touch with a bit.
I learned things about myself - like I actually like lipstick, can be a little judgmental, and accidentally start crying when I get angry.
I hopped on the legging bandwagon and haven't looked back since.
I started cooking at home every night of the week. Oh wait, I'm still working on that one.
And I think the best of all: We moved back to Fargo.
I could go on, and on and on, but a blog post can't possibly sum up all of 2014. I know what I think and I know what I feel and 2014 was a good year. I'm looking forward to 2015 and am thinking it will only take me until about January 19th to start writing the date correctly.
I suppose now would be the time to share what my New Year's Resolution(s) is but the truth is, I don't even know if I have one. How about... Figure out what I want out of life ... is that too ambitious?
