What is it about a fresh and brand New Year that inspires change and the desire to start blogging again?
Well this time, I not only plan to keep up the blogging, I also plan to take this journey in a whole new direction.
2016 changed me. Gone is the weak person who cries at the drop of a hat. Gone is the person who thinks she cannot do something that is remotely challenging. Gone is the mom who blames herself or feels guilt when things are not perfect.
I am stronger, and wiser, and more resilient than ever!
So… Before we move on to what will be an amazing 2017, let’s do a quick recap of 2016:
In March, my mom got uterine cancer. As you can imagine, it was a nightmare and an emotional rollercoaster realizing BOTH your parents have this horrible disease. Luckily it was caught very early on and surgery got rid of it completely.
My divorce was finalized in June. Let me tell you, this was the most liberating, scary, strengthening experience of my life. The struggles and the insane joys of single mom life will be one of the focuses of this new and improved blog!
In July, I traveled to London! Wow! What a beautiful city! I fell in love instantly and I am actually hoping to one day be able to move there.
In September, my dad went into remission! Having both parents go through the cancer battle is an inexplicable experience. Thankfully they are both okay and doing well.
Lets talk about Gavin.. the sunshine in my life.. that boy is AMAZING! He is getting smarter and funnier every single day. He has such a great little personality and really brings me so much joy! I look forward to sharing more about him here.
This leads us to 2017!!! A brand new year, a chance to start fresh, and an opportunity to take this blog in a direction that shows who I truly am and to celebrate the people and things I enjoy the most.
So stick around and stay tuned!
