Best Year Yet Vignette / Pursuing Vintage

As 2015 comes to a close, it is a time to reflect on the ups and downs of the year, and look forward to the fresh start of a new year.

2015 was a time of challenges and changes for our family.  A lot of things going on behind the scenes that contributed to the decision to publish fewer posts.  The recognition that time is sacred – that you can’t have it back.  Big Boy started kindergarten and I have less and less time with him.  Baby Boy continues to be a “mama’s boy”, which of course can get overwhelming at times, but I’ve chosen to cherish the short time left that he’ll be asking to be held and snuggled.  I’m grateful for a husband who has shown strength and bravery this year, and I am thankful for every day with him.

I’ll be somewhat happy to leave 2015 behind.  I’m looking forward to 2016 – I feel that it’s going to be a great year.  Actually, I know it’s going to be a great year.  Perhaps even the best year yet.

Deck the halls!  I’m slowly and steadily adding holiday decor to our home.  I’m nowhere near as organized as last year.  And I’m definitely not as organized as this woman:
