2015 was a year of many changes for me. Some moments from the past year are ones I can’t wait to forget. Others are moments I’ll cherish forever. So since I’d rather look back with fond memories, I thought I’d devote a post to some awesome moments from 2015.
Join me in nerding out!
There was that time Dear Boyfriend and I went skydiving for the first time:
My neck was killing me for a week or so afterwards, but it was fun!
Then there was our amazing vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth:
We are mildly obsessed with monkeys. It’s a running joke from almost five years ago. So meeting King Louie rocked!!
At Downtown Disney we went to Goofy’s Candy Company and made our own handcrafted sweets:
Hugging Winnie the Pooh was probably my favorite meet and greet with a character at WDW!
Walt Disney World is just SO…
Then there was a fabulous trip to the beach, where I snagged a photo of this beautiful sunrise before an early morning run:
My floppy pink beach hat nearly got swept away in the salty sea breeze, but we had a blast.
For Dear Boyfriend’s birthday, I made him this nerdy box, covered in a collage of his favorite game, movie, and comic characters. Inside I put two mini bottles of wine and his favorite chocolates.
I traveled more than I probably ever have in a single year … for work, vacation, races, family, visiting my soon-to-be new home.
I started this blog and have buckled down in a good rhythm with my novel writing.
I finished my first full marathon, after many setbacks and obstacles.
I met Santa. NBD. 🙂
And at the end of The Year of Many Changes, there was hot cocoa, and some family awkwardness, and of course some tearful holiday wistfulness.
There were even dancing musical Christmas lights! Sorry for the poor lighting. It was dark, duh. And we were driving.
And at the end of the day, what’s more important to me than crazy work and awkward family and all those other things was in front of me. Of course I’m talking about the coffee in the photo below. 😉
Thanks for making it through the end of an arguably saccharine post. Sometimes writing things like this helps my depression and helps me with my gratitude. So, on that note, thank YOU ALL, dear readers, for joining me as I began this blog only a couple of months ago. I can’t wait to see where it continues to grow.
Much love, and may we all have a blessed 2016.
