2014 Year In {Review}

I know it’s a little late for the great 2014 recap! But better late than never. I love documenting all the wonderful and not so wonderful things that took place in 2014. It was an amazing year of blessing and some hard things happened too. I am human and believe me life isn’t always perfect. I am excited about 2015, because this year I want to really embrace being a mother. I know I have been a mother for over 16 months now (crazy) and the Hubby and I even high fived each other on keeping RJ alive for 16 months! But I have been going through the motions a lot this past year (soaking RJ up for sure), but now that she is getting to an age where she absorbs EVERYTHING, it’s time to get intentional. Not pinterest and list intentional, but hands on one on one intentional. What does that mean? I wish I could tell you. But I know that I want to help my daughter grow into the beautiful and brave little girl that he has created and through daily prayer and his wisdom I am sure I will figure it out (or not).
