2013 – In Review

Here I go again, with very little blogging over a very long time.  

What can I say, life happens.
2013 brought a lot of change, all for the better (even if we didn’t know it at the time).
With the new year brought the first birthday of our sweet girl.  
In June, we decided to sell our house and went under contract to build our long-term home.

We moved into an apartment for a few months, and right after, I was laid off from my job.  It was a test of strength for me, as there is such a negative association with it.  But, it was for the best – I had been unhappy for awhile and it was the push I needed to move on.  The time off gave me a chance to spend time with friends I don’t see as often and spend some time on myself (which, as a mom, doesn’t happen very often).  Luckily, I found a new position two months later, and have loved every minute of being back to work.
We watched our house be built, and moved in at the end of November, just in time to celebrate the holidays (I am NOT kidding when I say our Christmas tree was one of the first things unpacked).
We’ve visited friends and family, had friends and family visit us, and enjoyed watching our sweet baby girl grow up.  How is it that she went from this:
to this:

You don’t realize how big they’re getting until you look at pictures.  We are in full blown toddler world, and it’s really fun.  
Thank you 2013 for being a great year.   We know 2014 is going to bring great things – and I’m going to try my darnedest to blog more about them.
