2015 was definitely one for the record books. I know, I know I haven’t posted since February of last year (really??!!)-eek. 2015 was filled with fun and adventure but at the same time I felt like my inspiration for this little blog moved to the back burner. Not because it wasn’t important anymore but because I wasn’t quite sure where I wanted it to go or what I had to say. I was feeling lack of inspiration and really that is it. When the inspiration isn’t there it shows and I didn’t want to post just to post.
I’ve realized now that although I have nothing groundbreaking going on over here, this space is important to me. I love having a place to look back and see how my life was going at that particular moment. I love seeing my kids grow and I love having a place to share with others. So with that being said, I will post my resolutions for the year soon, and needless to say blogging regularly is definitely on the list.
Before that though, here is the year that was 2015. Be ready for tons of photos.
Last years resolutions were definitely in effect. I really worked hard on getting strong and healthy. Exercise has always been an important part of my life but now even more so. January started off with a bang.
We also celebrated a 4th birthday.
Another special birthday.
Baseball also started.
I started a membership at the YMCA. I was able to start trying out new classes.
Spin was a new one for me.
I also dabbled again with eating Paleo-ish.
We stayed in a hotel that reminded me of “The Shining”
We went to a hockey game.
We celebrated my Mom’s Birthday with a shrimp boil.
We had a ballet recital.
This month had celebrations.
And someone special’s birthday
This month marked our first trip to the Keys for the year.
This little fishy learned to swim.
We made a Summer Bucket List and were able to check off almost everything!
We visited a beautiful beach and found hundreds of shark teeth.
This month was filled with travel and fun.
We spent the majority of the month in the Keys.
We had a great Fourth of July.
Midway through the month the grown-ups flew to the Windy City.
Then back down to the Keys to finish of the month and catch some lobsters.
Back to school and back to soccer.
This month was quiet except for some school events and a pretty epic wine and cheese party.
This month we were busy with birthday celebrations and yummy food.
I hosted Thanksgiving for the very first time!
We took a quick trip to Savannah.
This month was filled with Christmas celebrations and tons of family time.
I loved our tree this year.
The kids LOVED our Advent calendar.
A much needed girl’s night out.
Waiting patiently to open presents.
We cooked a Christmas duck and it was amazing.
Aren’t these the prettiest Yorkshire Pudding’s you have ever seen? My mom made them and the were the fluffiest most delicious things ever.
After Christmas we took one last quick trip to South Carolina.
We had such a great year. I was able to really stick to my resolutions and I am definitely proud of that.
While all the photos look like tons of fun I definitely still deal with the craziness that goes along with having two children, owning a business and trying to stay healthy and stress-free. We worked hard and played hard and made so many wonderful memories.
2016 has a lot to live up to.
