2014 re-cap

I have been avoiding this thing like the Black Plague. Not on purpose, necessarily, but other social forums have filled the space and the many times I thought about writing here, I quickly decided it was just too much work. Also a lot of this year has been an internal struggle (not that you could really tell by my Instagram feed...) to decide if I should be less present in this weird internet world, or continue to embrace it despite privacy concerns. Anyway.

Last year when I was writing my re-cap it was truly difficult to find the blessings among the travesty. I prayed that this year would be better, and boy has it! (Or should I say girl? But that is a post for another day...)
