Guess What?!?!

I know that title makes it sound like I have a totally awesome announcement, but I don't. In fact, it's really just exciting to me.

Anyway, I have the internet finally!! Do you understand how difficult it is to live without the internet? I mean, you get used to it, but sometimes it is really frustrating when you just need to check one little thing, or your kids need to use it for homework (hey, at least I got them out of homeowork a couple of times, yeah?), or I just want to look at my email to make sure I remember that one thing I was supposed to do....

So yes, it is BACK! I can finally start to write again, which I have really missed. I have a lot of catching up to do. With this busy holiday season, I probably won't get started on that until Boring January hits. Which is fine, I'm already 7.... or 8... or 9 months behind, what's one more, am I right?

Even though I just called January boring, I am actually looking forward to it. I love the beginning of a new year, a fresh start, and some new goals to accompany it. I feel like I kind of got lost in this last year of 2012. I had such high hopes for it, and it didn't quite (read: NOT AT ALL) turn out the way I had planned. We had so many changes, some good, some not-so-good. I can truly say that it was the hardest year of my life. If it stays that way, I will feel truly blessed, but I would like to have a bit of a break between trials, if you know what I mean. I feel like I have grown a lot, and I am grateful for the lessons I have learned. Mostly, I am grateful for the people in my life. There are so many thoughtful and unselfish and wonderful people. Christlike is a good word to describe the people in my life. I hope I can always remember and keep close to my heart the things I have learned over this past year. I hope someday I can pay it forward, as I would love nothing more. For now, I hope to record my life..... the good, and the bad.

I love this time of year. It is so wonderful to remember our Savior. A humble, tiny baby; the light of the world. I am so happy. My life is full of joy. I couldn't adore my children more, and my husband is the greatest. That picture at the top is on our Christmas {post}card, and it makes me smile.

If you have stuck around and still check my blog, I appreciate it! Thanks for caring :)
