What a Year

And just like that, it's the last day of December and the last day of 2015. This year has been a whirlwind to say the least. 

December has been a quiet blogging month. But, I haven't forgotten my drive for posting. I accidentally...on purpose...took a hiatus. With the husband traveling for work, a busy infant and a strong desire to be present (which I mentioned briefly here and here), I didn't let the self-imposed pressure to post get me down.

But, this blog has always been on the back of my mind. It will always be the place I come back to.

2015 has mostly been about my pregnancy and my baby boy. Of course, other things happened too. But, becoming a mother has been the priority. I went from how I envisioned being a mom to actually being one. 

There were some (blogging) goals I didn't accomplish in 2015 that are automatically rolling over into 2016. Least of which are...

  • Posting my birth story. I have it written, but I haven't hit "publish." 
  • Sharing so many things I learned (so far) about being a (new) mom, traveling with a baby, style while breastfeeding and having a spit-up baby and starting foods with an infant. These lifestyle/mommy topics are ventures I want to expand upon through this blog.

Regardless of the things on my to-do list that have been left unchecked, I am loving the fact that I'm living the life I have chosen. 

This past Thanksgiving, I felt like so many more tragic stories popped up on the news.  While none of them affected me personally, it did emphasize just how short life is. I wanted to forgo the notion of trying to attain the picture perfect moment and just appreciate every moment as they are. The months I have with baby B are flying by and soon enough, he won't be a baby anymore. So I'm relishing these full-time days I have with him.

I appreciate all of you readers who come back and comment on this little ol' blog. I appreciate the attention you give since there are so many blogs all over nowadays.

I hope you enjoyed all of 2015 and have the best start to 2016. Whatever you do and wherever you are, Happy New Year!
