Cheers to 2014!

At some point, this actually happened.

At some point, this actually happened too.

Happy New Year, y’all!

Holy crap, so 2013 happened.

There is a suitcase on the floor of my room right now that has a pair of Cole Haan pumps and a dress that needs to go to the cleaners. It’s been there since I got back from New York. In October.

Side note: When I did the Huckabee show, I ended up wearing Uggs with my dress instead of the dress shoes. Because I’m me and cold and also the red eye flight the night before.

Anyway. The suitcase is still there.

Oh yeah, also I went to New York City and met Mike Huckabee, and did a quick segment on his show. Such an awesome experience! La la love the peeps at Fox News.

So life has been a little bit busy, slightly overwhelming, and generally surreal as I’ve been adjusting to being single for the first time since I was 18. Only now I have kids. Single at 18 is different than almost divorced at almost 31, that’s for sure.

Laundry now consists of three baskets on top of the washer and dryer — one for me, and one for each of my daughters. Things get a quick fold as they come out of the dryer, and that’s it. Thankfully we’re all girls and don’t have a problem changing downstairs as we’re practically on our way out the door. Also thankfully we have blinds.

We got a cat. Oswin is awesome. Her name is short for Clara Oswald. 10 points for you if you get it.

Thing 1 turned 10. She’s going to Virginia on a class field trip in April. What kind of school is this? Oh yeah, one that also teaches her Latin and Mandarin and most importantly cultivates her love of learning.

Thing 2 is in kindergarten. Interestingly, her teacher is the little sister of one of my high school acquaintances. Small, small world this is. She is loving every second of it. Thing 2, not necessarily the teacher, but her teacher is so awesome that I bet she’s (mostly) loving it too.

What else? Oh yeah, I got a full time job. I’ve been freelancing at The Stir since its inception, but they needed a full time staff writer at the exact moment I needed a full time job. Perfecto! That’s mostly why I haven’t been blogging here. I write 33 posts a week for them. By the end of the day, I’m more interested in cuddling girlies or zonking in front of Hulu than updating y’all on my life.

Speaking of updating y’all on my life … I started this blog post on the first and now it’s the fifth. Did I mention that I’ve been busy??

2013 was a crappy year. It happens. You know what though? Life throws you curveballs. God in His infinite wisdom refines us in ways we never saw coming, but ultimately, if you love HIM at the end of the day, and trust not in yourself or in His other creations, but just in HIM, He will not lead you astray.

Through every trial, He will prevail, but one thing I’ve learned over the last several years is that you have step out of the way of yourself, let go, and let God.

Here’s to a lovely 2014.
