Last night, as I was trying to fall asleep, I had big plans to write a post today to recap the past year, my second year of blogging.
I thought that this afternoon I would sit down and share my thoughts with you, but today got away from me.
Craig, Katie, Matthew, and I ran a 5K this morning. Well, Craig ran a 5K, if I’m honest. I did more than my share of walking.
Then, our almost-five-year-old-not-a-baby-anymore girl ran her first race. I thought my heart might explode when I saw her face, beaming with pride, after she crossed the finish line. (Katie comes into view in this video about 46 seconds in.)
Once we got home and cleaned up, we tucked an exhausted Matthew in for his nap, swept Katie off to our bed and snuggled with her. We talked, tickled, and laughed and I’d be hard pressed to tell you which of us felt more joy in those stolen moments.
When Matthew woke up, we all piled onto the couch in a heap of pillows, blankets, and happiness.
So, instead of writing about the small moments over the past year, we were creating new ones.
And that’s what it’s all about.
Thank you so much for reading my words here. It’s been a lovely two years. xo
And a special thank you to my friend, Lizz, who left me a lovely blogiversary gift on her blog today. Please go stop by if you have a moment.
