2013, What A Year

So, here it is, the end of 2013 is upon us. It only feels like yesterday I was in my parents house getting ready to ring in this year, I can't quite believe it's gone by so fast!
We started this year with a lot of "big" things to do, most importantly, have a baby, but on top of that we had to find somewhere to live together, buy a suitable car (I was a bit of a girl racer previously!) and just prepare ourselves as best we could for the huge change that was coming our way!
While I am a natural worrier, there were plenty of days where I really didn't think we'd pull all of this off, but I needn't have worried. As my oh so patient other half told me, things will fall into place...and that they did.
We found a newer car in February, much more suitable to transport a baby around in, we moved into our first home together in April and of course we welcomed our wonderful little boy, Luke into the world in June. Not forgetting, we became engaged in August when James and Luke planned a surprise proposal :)
Of course like every year there's been some lows, but the high times far out weigh them. I've seen my closest friends taking the next steps in their lives, new babies have arrived to join Luke in the 2013 gang, I've met some wonderful new people who I just know will be around for a long time and most importantly, I've changed. I guess becoming a parent does that, but I've realised the more important things in life, I'm trying my hardest not to fret over the small things anymore  and to focus on the bigger picture, but most of all my drive has kicked up a notch. I've got a more determined feeling within me, to really go after my dreams and goals, pursue happiness so that I can set a good example for our little boy and to make him proud.
2013 was great but I have a feeling 2014 is going to be even better :)

Happy New Year everyone! I really hope all of your dreams for this coming year come true. Peace, love, light and positive vibes to you all xo
