Goodbye to 2013

I've felt the need lately to do a little reflecting. I feel like with every struggle there is also a success and so in order to see all of it, here is my year in review however brief it is.

Success - Wayne finally became full-time in February after 5 long years. Talk about being patient. Yay to health insurance and more money. He LOVES his job and it has been a life-long dream of his to be where he is at and I am so proud of all his hard work this year. Way to go honey!

Struggle - Finding time as a family of 3 or even just the 2 of us. We work opposite schedules so it can be rough sometimes, but I know it is not a forever situation and we are constantly working on our communication skills.

Success - My Husband is working his behind off for the better of our family. We have big dreams for 2014 (buy a house and baby #2).

Struggle - My blog has fallen so behind. It's always the first to go. Sad, but true.

Success – This little blog has helped me meet and make so many new friends this year (locally and nationally). I’m so grateful for this community I’ve found. I also attended BBC in October and made great new connections and met a few people in the flesh and not just through the computer.

Struggle - Building on our savings/house fund. It always seems like there is something more important that comes up.

Success - Wayne and I made HUGE steps in cleaning up our credit. Yay!

Struggle - Keeping up friendships and making time for my girls!

Success - I am so blessed to have the friends that I do and that they understand me and my family and love me through it!

Struggle – Finding a better balance in life in general...full-time paralegal, mommy & wife, part-time blogger and photographer.

Success – I have booked 2 weddings for next Summer. Which may not seem like a lot, but for a side business it's plenty.

Success - Keeping my family healthy and happy. I have the most beautiful little girl that fills my life with more joy than I have ever known and a Husband that works day in and day out in order for us to live. He is the most loving and un-selfish man I know and I am so proud to call him mine.

Happy New Year Friends!!

Music Monday {Vol. 17}

While I love this song so much, I don't really care for the awkward video. I get the meaning behind it, but I was hoping with this song being so beautiful, that they would make a beautiful video, too.

"Who You Love" by John Mayer featuring Katy Perry

Happy Monday!
