Finally letting go of 2014… Bring on 2015!

2015SO yes, I do realize we are now THREE weeks into the new year. I promise we celebrated New Year’s eve with the rest of the world. It’s just that 2014 was so ridiculously amazing that I wanted to revel in it a little longer. I thought once I put the Christmas tree away, 2014 could be packed up alongside it. As it turns out, I’ve really been having a tough time letting 2014 go ( insert Idina Menzel singing here).

2014 brought us more opportunities to travel. No matter if it’s was for business or leisure, we love to travel! We had the opportunity to travel and enjoy some amazing vacations last year. A family trip to Myrtle Beach, a girls getaway to Vegas, a family staycation at the Gaylord Texan and quite possibly the best couples trip I have ever experienced with #BeachesMoms at Beaches Turks & Caicos.

Our career paths took some amazing plot twists too. Randall accepted a new position leading us to Austin, TX. Although we absolutely adore it here it now, it was bittersweet leaving Waxahachie,Texas which had become our family “hometown”. It was a whirlwind move between institutes and conferences all over the country for Randall.  My pursuits took me to a few places before and after our move as well. In July, I traveled solo to NYC for Blogger Bash. That was an incredible experience and one I will never forget. I made some amazing friendships and great business partnerships. After moving to Austin, I went on a small roadtrip to Galveston to attend Blog Elevated and connected with even more Texas bloggers in my community.

Our move blessed us with our beautiful new home and an even greater community. There was no way of knowing the incredible friendships that would be waiting for us in our new neighborhood. Right on our own street. Our new neighbors have become friends like family. We support and celebrate each other. To say the least, they have become “our village”.

But as they say, the show must go on. While I loved so much about 2014, I’ve caught a few glimpses that have already assured me 2015 will hold some pretty big adventures of its own. So here we go…ready or not….

One more thing…… Thanks for being along for the ride of 2014 and I hope 2015 will mean we will get to go on some adventures together. It means the world to us that you are here.




  1. I love it when the new year comes along. I know it’s just another day, but for some reason, January 1st seems to be this magical day where new things are more possible than they were before.

  17. I am pretty good about letting go of 2014. It wasn’t one of my best years so I wasn’t too sad to see it go. Some of the events in 2014 are things I am still dealing with. But, I am ready to walk a new path in 2015.

    I love Austin. I used to live in OK and my best friend had family in Austin. So we would take the drive down every few weekends. Always had a good time down there.
