14 in '14 Linky
|This is my favorite Bible verse and has comforted me in many times of distress and concern.|
Again, I couldn't narrow it down to just one, but I was able to get them both in the same picture! (Does that count?) A friend of mine got married in November, and I needed something to wear to her wedding. That's when I went to Maurices because they have amazing clothes, great sales, and are fashion-friendly for the plus size gal. I found this shawl-meets-cardigan and fell in LOVE! I also saw this beautiful scarf and knew I had to have that too. (Though I was a good girl and waited until they were both on sale!)
But in all seriousness, I truly adore the entire series. I related to it deeply and truly think they did a great job casting. Though there are, in my opinion, two major flaws with the film, it was definitely "up there" in my opinion of book-to-film adaptations, and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment. INSURGENT!!!
I think my favorite new thing I've tried has been launching into my Teachers Pay Teachers journey. It has been productive thus far, and I can't believe I didn't do it sooner! I want to make a commitment to continuing to pursue that journey again this year and achieve even greater goals.
Classroom Decor post turned out.
Another easy one, but this one takes me way back to the beginning of 2014. As you probably remember, Alabama had a snowpocalypse in January and February. I didn't know it at the time, but that was going to be my precious Picasso's last time to enjoy a snow fall! We always teased that he was part polar bear, and you can certainly tell it from this video too. The life in his eyes in this picture is such a warm reminder of how adventurous my baby was. He lives on in my heart, but I miss him terribly! I'm just so thankful for all the crazy weather we had this year because I know he had a blast!
My favorite 2014 memory would have to be the memories associated with #4 - my favorite photo. But if I had to pick another one, I would say that seeing my best friend again after two years (and meeting her son/my nephew for the first time) was pretty awesome!
Okay, seriously, I'll try. My 2014 would have to be summed up in the word overcome.
I had several setbacks, multiple "light bulb" moments, and invaluable lessons. I think I am learning to prioritize and confidently be me. It's a bittersweet feeling, but I feel that I was able to overcome in 2014 thanks to God and to the amazing friends He has blessed me with.
My prayer for 2015 is that my "one little word" will be balance.
Thanks so much to Miss Kindergarten, A Teeny Tiny Teacher, and Dragonflies in First for this linky! It was a nice opportunity to reflect on the specific moments that made my 2014 what it was.
