2014 Rear View

Dearest 2014, where the heck did you vanish to? When did 2015 suddenly become mere hours away? The second half of December always whizzes by me, and suddenly I am scrambling to reflect on the last year and project my goals for the following year. This morning, I managed to tackle what I hope to achieve in 2015. With a little airport appreciation time in between flights, I’m hoping to be productive and piece together my fab year.

So thankful for this chick, right here.


2014 Highlight Reel – Let’s start out with some of the best adventures I’ve had this year! Looking back, I have so much to be thankful for. Often, I find myself getting caught up on the mundane drill of daily routines, so I forget what wonderful adventures I’ve had! I know ever day can’t be a home run, for which my bank account and body profusely thank me.

One of the best photos of me all year!

Doc truly made the second half of 2014 incredible!


Biggest Personal Challenges – I may be a perfectionist, but I am by far not perfect. Several unscheduled visits from the Itty Bitty Sh*tty Committee cropped up throughout the year. Addressing them and asking for help was not easy, and those in my life by and large were supportive. Unfortunately, I discovered that not everyone was in my corner. When someone reaches out for help, advice, or guidance, the last thing anyone expects is to be called a crybaby or a self-proclaimed martyr. For all my readers who rallied behind me, thank you, truly. I sincerely appreciate it! Thankfully my list of gripes is short, and I am finally laying them to rest.

The Best Damn Sister a girl could ask for!

Some amazingly fun gal pals!

There are so many people who contributed to making the last twelve months incredible, and there isn’t enough time or space in the world to truly express how grateful I am to everyone. I don’t want to name names because without fail I will forget someone. Please know that if you were around for any part either in person or vicariously as a reader, I am thankful you were willing to hop into my flight kit and travel along with me. I sincerely hope that you’ll continue joining me after the clock strikes 12 and 2015 officially begins. I can’t say it enough: Thank you.

      When is the Ottawa Half? It might take a few years to save up for, but I would love to do it!
