2014 was indeed an amazing year. I published my memoir (wow, I still can’t believe I did that) and I welcomed a new love of my life ( I can’t believe I ever questioned having a third baby!). I continued to be incredibly blessed by my amazing family, including Sophie, who gave me (and continue to give me) a reason to make the most of each and every day of my wonderful life. It was indeed a busy year too. Welcoming a third child gave new meaning to the term multi-tasking. I feel sadness that this past year my blog has taken a back seat to other important things, but I know it is where it is meant to be for me right now. I am still committed to it and hope to become more regular with it again. The time will come and it will happen naturally. For now, I love to share these extra special moments that inspire me and make me smile.
Christmas was awesome this year. My children love Christmas. They talk about it all year-long. When the season arrives, their anticipation is almost too much for them to bear. And there is nothing that brings me more joy than sharing in their excitement over Christmas Day.
Ben and Lina received this circus tent, and the other day, it was set up in our living room and Sophie decided to make it her new den. She slept in it for quite sometime, poking her head out occasionally to assess the situation and show me her beautiful face.
For Christmas, I received an ice cream maker, and today we got to making some. Truthfully, I don’t think I have ever eaten chocolate ice cream so decadent and delicious. I think Sophie agrees, because as the ice cream started dripping off the table onto the floor, she became so consumed in licking it up she didn’t even realize it was dripping all over her head. We took her straight to the bathtub, where Ben and Lina got to scrubbing. Lina took her bath so seriously she put her bathing suit on and eventually got in with her! Sophie hates baths, and after she is finally out rubs herself with a frenzy on any soft surface she can find!
For me 2015 comes with several serious resolutions. After all, I am a work in progress. As Sophie and I look ahead to the upcoming year, we wish to you all the best for 2015! I hope to connect with you often. Thank you so much for following along with me. Welcome 2015!
