This space has been long neglected and to be honest I'm a bit anxious to come back. I have so many hopes and expectations for this blog and business of mine but to be honest, 2015 kind of bit me in the rear. It was one of "those" years. Not a bad one but it was hard, really hard. It was a year that challenged me and grew me, a year where I felt like I constantly failed but if I look through the lens of grace I see refinement and hope. As I look to 2016 my hopes and expectations remain strong but my theme is grace and my outlook is one of acceptance. If anything, 2015 taught me to be more accepting of "me", the entire "me", faults and all. I'm letting go of trying to do this the right way and am instead am going to do what feels right in my heart and letting God take me where he will. I'm excited and feel the inspiration that I've been longing for. So with that, I leave you with the joy and excitement of an almost two year old who finally got to go to the park. The visit was much shorter than he would have liked but making it to the park with said child and a newborn is an accomplishment all in itself!
