This year has been an amazing roller coaster of highs and lows. Thankfully, I’ve had more highs than lows in 2015. This will forever be the year my dream of becoming a mom came true. It had a few speed bumps, but it finally came true February 19th, and I can’t think of a forever job I’d want more. I feel so blessed to be Manny jr.’s mom. He has such a love for everything, and everyone he meets. There are moments that it floors me how happy he is about the simplest things in life. It has given me a new out look on trying to take in the moment; rather than trying to think five steps ahead to what needs to be done. I’m still learning how to navigate being a newish mom, but I feel like I’m getting there. We’re officially almost sleeping through the night!! Yep I’m doing a little victory dance!!
This year also marked me losing one of the most important people in my life, my mom. Instead of looking at the glass half empty I’m thanking my lucky stars for the time I had with her. I had the opportunity to talk to her almost everyday when I was pregnant. We had some of the funniest conversations. She was very patient with a very hormonal daughter that sometimes was a little sassy. I also found a silver lining to not being the most technically savvy lady. Did you know you have to delete your voicemails on your iPhone twice for them to really be deleted? This might be the moment where you are like yeah!! Well, I didn’t. So woo hoo for small silver linings. I like to hear her voice, and if I didn’t have the opportunity to it would really break my heart. There is something so comforting to know even if she’s gone I can still feel close to her that way.
I want to thank you all for your support!! It means so much to me to see your encouraging words!! Without that support I wouldn’t be able to do what I love. So far it has been an amazing journey, with lots of ups, and a few hiccups along the way. I look forward to seeing what 2016 brings with y’all by my side!! Thank you so much for your continued support and kind words!! Cheers to a happy New Year, and little glass of bubbly for all!!
