holiday reflections 2013


A few thoughts as we wrap up this holiday season...


With the loss of a special family member I am reminded just how precious and fragile life really is.

This is the second Christmas that my mother is cancer free. Way to go maman!

We have five kiddos on my husband's side (with another on the way) and they are all growing up way too fast.

The blog is doing way better than I ever imagined and surpassed my "blog goals". I feel proud.

I must admit I feel a bit disappointed that we are currently not getting ready for our wedding. But then again, taking the time to relax has been wonderful.

No matter how hard I try, I eat way too much food during the holidays.

I took an afternoon nap for the first time in over a year... it was amazing.

I don't see my sister nearly as much as I would like to, but when I do it's like no time has passed.

It's ok to say "no".

Even though we don't have children of our own, receiving all the kiddo Christmas cards in the mail makes my day.

I'm not sure how I got so lucky but I did, as I have the most incredible parents and parents in law.

There's no such thing as reading too much.

Quality vs. Quantity. I'm still learning.

Dave and I just spent our seventh Christmas together, and he never ceases to amaze me.
