Whew! 2014 is at last almost over. This has been...quite a year to say the least. One for the books and unfortunately, not really in a good way. If 2013 was the year of lessons, this was the year of transition. The year of change. Our most trying year so far. Once again, life decided to throw as many curve balls as possible to keep us on our toes, the universe testing resolve and ability to adapt.
But we made it. We're finally on the threshold of 2015, hopefully a year of awesome new chances and hope. Abbie is happy and healthy, growing like a weed. I am content with that alone. She tried her best to stay up with me tonight for new years, but only made it tip about 10:30 tonight. But she's still here, my constant. I'm indeed very lucky.
But here is Owlfish & Family's 2014 in review:
Began a new photography set, the 52 Project. Started spring semester. Made a huge choice in my personal life. Abbie began early learning daycare. Snowpocalypse 2k14, phase 1.
Celebrated Imbolc and battled cyberbullying. Started potty-training hardcore. Snowpocalypse 2k14, phase 2. Started visiting more art shows and began picking up a camera often. Started incorporating reading every night to build Abbie's vocabulary.
(The Wilderness Months- view my instagram for pictures from these months)
NovemberTurned 25 years old. Celebrated another special birthday. Turned in my intent to graduate in 2015.
DecemberLife imploded again and spent the holidays in the hospital. Left for recovery just before New Years.
As you can see, it was not the greatest year, although there was as always much to be thankful for. I'm very much excited for a new slate with 2015, which hopefully holds me finally living alone with my Owlfish and, at long last, graduating from my university with my degrees, along with just in general positive changes.
So from both of us crazy girls, to you and yours,
we wish you a Happy (and SAFE) New Years and a blessed 2015!
This is the year of YES.
