Happy New Year 2014


Another year is coming to a close. Another amazing year with the blog. Hard to believe I started this blog here wayyyyyyy back in 2004 as my TTC journey with Sarah and now 9 years later we have three amazing kids, a successful blog and jobs we love!

This year had a lot of ups and downs from a move back to California and saying goodbye to friends and family.

From loosing extended family and old friends to welcoming new babies and marriage. I gained a new sister!

There were a lot of highs and lows this year.  I pray for peace and comfort to all of those this new year as we all try to deal with loosing loved ones and pets.

I watched my oldest daughter turn ten years old and both older girls learn to snowboard. Samantha found a new love in ballet and is determined to continue to become a graceful dancer.

I watched my daughters say goodbye to old friends, but make amazing new friendships. I watched my baby turn into an active toddler with her own little personality.

My relationship with my husband grew stronger and we celebrated our 10 year wedding Anniversary.

I turned 30 this year and I personally set out to loose weight and get healthy in 2013, I lost around thirty pounds and two sizes. I would like to loose another 30 this coming year and just keep growing my business with Origami Owl and my blog.

God Bless everyone and hope for an amazing year in 2014! I know I plan to start my 30’s with a bang!
