2014 -- It's Going to Be a Doozy

I am somewhat in denial about the fact that it's New Year's Eve. Yet, even so, it is easy this year to look back on a particularly eventful year, and look ahead to a year that promises ever-more of the unexpected.

2013 was wonderful. It was busy. It was full of all those things that life should be full of: family, blessings, adventures, love, laughter. It was the sort of year that I would never, ever, in a million years have envisioned for myself, but that I would not change for anything. It was a year of trusting God and being rewarded many times over.

This I think pretty much speaks for 2013. Smiling in Wichita, KS.

But 2014 . . . oh, 2014, the adventures and surprises you have in store. And that's only taking into consideration the stuff we can anticipate.

Like the final steps of this never-ending residency application process.

Like Charles' home stretch of med school rotations (and getting back into that routine after all these lovely weeks off of it).

Like learning our (Charles') fate for residency. And making plans accordingly.

Like welcoming Mr. Man, and adjusting to life as a family of 4.

Like Charles' med school graduation, and the (very) necessary celebrating that will go along with it.

Like moving . . . somewhere . . . and getting settled into life there.

Like moving . . . with two under 2.

Like Charles beginning residency, and all that will bring for all of us.

Like Clare and her brother continuing to grow up . . . and all the adventures, heartaches, headaches, laughter, and fleetingly beautiful moments that brings.

So, 2014, you've been warned. We're waiting for you . . . Bring. It. On.

Happy New Year!!! (and stay safe out there)

*insert lots of cheers and hoots and hollers and noise maker noise and confetti here*
