2015.  Say it out loud, it just sounds weird.  2015.  Although it took literally one second to turn from 2014 to 2015 the sound of our new year makes me feel like we’ve taken a ten year leap forward.  2015?  It sounds like the Jetsons could be living next door.  Does it seem a lot more drastic than 2014 to you?  2015.  It screams futuristic and I am unsure of how we have gotten here.  Quite honestly it makes me feel like I should throw all my Apple products and remote controls out the window, revert to a trustee old pen, paper(and my brain) and pretend like time is not going as quickly as it is.  I need babies to stay babies around here.  Toddlers to remain toddlers.  Whats that they say?  The days are long but the years are short?  My gosh it is so very true.  2014 seemed like it was 10 minutes long.  So next time I am complaining that I can’t wait for my husband to get home…or that I can’t wait for the weekend…or that Im tired….or need some quiet time…please remind me of how very short the years are.  That Ill probably never get the cuddles back.  Or the tantrums.  Or the most genuine, innocent I love you, mommy’s.  This new year has begun with so much gratitude around here.  Another healthy, heart-beaming, wonderful year has been had and it’s been such a blessing to share it with all of you.  Heres to wishing you a truly incredible 2015, friends!
