Change is Coming

Hello!

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!

Starting Fresh in 2016!

Well hello there! It has certainly been a while!

2015 has certainly been a rollercoaster of a year for me. Full of highs that have given me some of the best moments of my life, and lows that have given me so much strength and faith that everything in life WILL and DOES work out.

Let’s recap some of the highlights (and perhaps some trials) of my 2015 shall we?

In 2015…

Gavin tried soccer. HATED it.. He looked so cute in his little uniform though!

We took a super fun family trip to California and Disneyland!

We visited the Texas State Aquarium.

I moved school districts in order to be closer to home and I am enjoying being at a place that is so challenging and rewarding. (Although I REALLY miss the ladies I used to work with.)

This year… my marriage was put to the test.

My dad was diagnosed with cancer. Cancer. The one word that can change the entire way you see and live your life.

Needless to say, life is unrecognizable.. BUT I refuse to let that get me down. I saw this quote online and it really resonated with me.

So here is to a 2016 that is going to be my best yet! One full of love, laughter, hope, and new beginnings!
