12/31/14- Cheers to the New Year!

What a full year it’s been. I’m always amazed when I go through the years’ pictures at how much we’ve done-We are a busy family! And honestly, every time I do a post like this, I get a little choked up. It really is exciting to see my girls grow, change and discover new things. We watched Olivia turn 13 this year, Natalie 8. No shortage of cuteness there!

On a personal note, this year I achieved both a shodan in Aikido and Iaido. My journey in these arts has been exciting and full of blood, sweat and tears. I’ve certainly had my share of all of these to push the mighty rock just a little farther up the mountain of mastery. I am humbled every time I step on the mat.

Philip and I shared our 16 year Anniversary this year. I am beyond lucky that we get to go through this thing called life together. His love, support and jokes keeps life fun and interesting.

Thank you, the readers of this blog for all your love, encouragement, and support. Cheers to 2015!
