I may say this every year, but this year was incredible and blessed. I can’t even count how many happy moments I’ve had this year~~~ But I’m just so grateful for my support system and the loved ones in my life. Through all the ups, downs, and new transitions~ I’ve had an incredible year with the ones I love most. Here are just a few things below that I’m grateful for and that really stand out in 2014.
1. Baby Blair
–baby blair!! especially since it’s the baby girl I’ve always wanted! I seriously tear up and get really emotional thinking about it. i can’t wait to watch this little girl blossom into the most beautiful person, develop a father-daughter relationship with mike, and just really melt our hearts as she grows up. i pray daily that’she’s be the brightest star, have the strongest faith, and love sports just like her daddy.
2. Michael Blair
–i always think about how lucky i am to have met michael blair. we met in a once in a life time chance opportunity and i can believe we’ve been together for 6+ years now. he is my rock, my cheerleader, the person who makes me laugh, grounds me when i’m being cray, makes me feel incredibly safe, and is seriously my favorite person in the world. we can do nothing all day and it’s fun. we can try new things and i get butterflies in my stomach. when something stresses me out or makes me sad, he’s the one person who can always pull me out of it. having mike as my partner and co-parent is incredibly exciting and i can’t wait for this new adventure we’re about to embark on.
3. New Jobs
–mike and i both got new jobs/promotions this year and we’ve been SOO SOOO blessed. when we met we were both in our early 20s, broke/unemployed, and just finding ourselves. together we grew our careers, started a family and became adults! lol it’s been a really fun financial adventure to grow together and really appreciate all that we have and are working towards.
4. Fun Trips
–this year i went on a bunch of great trips with mike, girlfriends and family. i love creating memories and doing new things! having this support system while traveling to new places and visiting loved ones has been awesome. i hope to continue to travel more around the world and bring my new little one for the ride.
–being married, it’s been REALLY nice to have two families. two groups of parents and siblings that love you unconditionally. inside jokes, holiday dinners, and lazy weekends are so fun. i’m incredibly lucky!!
6. Lucy Blair
–oh little sass monster lucy. apple of my eye and love of my life. she captured my heart from the moment we took her home and not a day goes by where i don’t melt over her. i love her mischievous spirit and her cuddly moments. i hope she and baby blair have the most adorable bond. <3
–i wouldn’t be the person i am today without my girlfriends. i can honestly say that i’m a better person through these relationships and i learn SO MUCH from all of them! this strong support system (along with mike and my family) has propelled me forward, given me hope, prayed for me, and loved me through everything. this sounds so cheesy but i’m a confident person because of their love and their total acceptance of who i am. i also think that having this group has made my relationship with mike stronger. my life is more balanced with these crazies and i can’t wait to experience more milestones, transitions, memories and life moments with these ladies by my side! xo
8. Community Group
–we’ve been in this community group for over a year and it’s been such a wonderful space to meet new friends, bond and share the details of our lives. xoxo it’s exciting to go through the year with the same group each week and share bits of your life, have people constantly praying and loving on you~~ i’m really blessed with this group!
