I realize it’s a little late that I never said happy holidays, but if you read my last post, you know it’s been a really rough season for my family. That’s really an understatement. As I’ve said previously, I don’t think I’ll ever get over this tragedy, but one of my resolutions for 2015 is to keep going and not to lose sight of everything around me and what I still have. I’m trying my hardest to be thankful and faithful, but my gosh I’d be straight-up lying if I told you it was easy. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I mean, how can you just move on? It doesn’t seem right.
So please know that for awhile I’ll be trying to balance my feelings of moving on and not moving on. Because while I must eventually keep going with the blog and life and “move on” per se, I don’t think in my mind I’ll ever really be able to do that. I’ll still be thinking of December 13 and the last time I saw my daddy and thinking of the words we exchanged.
Honestly? This was the worst Christmas I’ve ever had to date. Immediately after my dad passed away I came down with a terrible stomach flu, then baby L got the same thing. Then my husband. We have literally spent the last two weeks doing things very unpleasant…in our PJs slash crazy-soft loungewear (thanks, Abbot + Main…I couldn’t have made it through without them).
I can’t wait to show you next week’s style post that includes some of my New Year’s resolutions for 2015 because for once I have them. I vow to have an amazing 2015 and say BUH-BYE to the incredibly awful 2014 (yes, baby L was born in early February, but I’m gonna consider that a separate thing, for real.).
I really hope you’ve had a Merry Christmas with your family and friends and promise to keep blogging…in heels…as we head into 2015.
