So today is the last day of 2014. I don’t know why, but somehow New Year’s Eve always manages to sneak up on me…It’s as if it hides behind Christmas, only to jump out at the last minute. SURPRISE, HERE I AM!

I don’t know why it bothers me…The BF and I generally enjoy an evening at home, watching Kathy Griffin torment the Silver Fox and maybe having a glass of wine. In other words, it isn’t an evening that requires much planning.



Of course, I like to spend some time thinking aboit the previous year… What was great, what sucked…Goals I accomplished and things I need to work on…

All in all, I think I can officially say 2014 was a good year.

I got published in not just one, but two magazines.


I went a little nuts crocheting, and found out I might actually be fairly good at it.


Elsa in progress

I did a lot of baking.


2014 saw my TV debut


And a wonderful article that appeared on the front page of our local paper.

My sweet boy turned TWO this year… Still healthy, happy, and a little bit wild at times. I still think of him as my little miracle.

As happy as I am with how things went in 2014, I’m looking forward to an even better 2015. I have big goals, and I’m finally gaining the confidence I need to work toward them.

Thanks for sticking with me for another year, friends. I hope you had a great 2014, and lots to look forward to in 2015.

Have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve!

What was your favorite moment of 2014? What are you looking forward to in 2015?
