Like most people, 2014 offered some extreme highs and lows for me. At the start of 2014, were still adjusting to our new life in California, far from family and friends. Then dealing with the loss of my grandmother was a very difficult time for me, but knowing I was pregnant forced me to stay positive for my baby. I had two of the most touching and sweet baby showers a girl could ask for and nesting helped me wait patiently to meet our little girl. The arrival of our daughter was the most special moment of my life and we are so thankful she is healthy. Having my sister and other family come to meet baby M and help us made the fall a wonderful and memorable time.
After a long nine months of house hunting (and months of pregnancy!), we were so fortunate to find the perfect beach cottage for our family of three. Although we are not in the house yet, we will be there soon and I look forward to being in a neighborhood near the beach with a room for our daughter. I love living in Northern California. I love the beauty and connection to the environment people have here. The weather isn’t too bad either! I feel so blessed and cannot wait to see what 2015 holds for our family. It will be especially rewarding to watch my daughter grow over the next year.
We will be celebrating at home tonight with sushi and a dessert course of dark chocolate!
Thanks for following me in 2014! I wish you a happy, healthy, and fun New Year’s Eve. From our family to yours, I hope you had a very happy holiday season and we wish you the best New Year!
