You know, I used to always be an early, on time, or never kind of girl. Late? Me? Nope. Not ever. But lately I just feel like I’m in a constant battle of catch up. I mean, I think I’m mostly okay with it, I do like procrastination (while making every deadline early), but I’m learning to be less antsy about things needing to so critically early. So here we are— about 3/4’s into January and rounding up last year.
Last year, without a doubt, was the fastest moving year EVER. Seriously, it lapped all other years and then some. It was also one of my busiest years to date. I really packed everything in tight and made room mostly for family, pizza, and sometimes a friend or two. I’m really lucky my friends (and family to, duh) stuck with my this year– I was absent at best most days. I mean, to be quiet honest, I’m the worst with keeping up with calls, texts, Facebook, whatever, but then add on a cookbook, running this show, emails, and everything else— well, lets just say I have the most understanding friends ever.
Last year was good. Good for my family. Good for me. And good for this blog. I am pretty proud of all I accomplished, even if there were days with tears (some friends don’t believe that I can cry– I do— sometimes). I’m happy to move forward into 2015. And so pleased to look back at all the better moments of last year. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite posts— some of your favorite posts– and other random tidbits here and there.
Thanks for being here, friends (real life and blog friends). And thank you, 2014, for being such a good year. I owe you.
