We are 10 hours away from the big ball drop in New York City. The fire is roaring in the fireplace, a casual day at home is well underway, and the cans of Sofia are chilling in the fridge. If we can, by some amazing feat, stay awake until midnight, it will be a lovely miracle. A quick re-cap of 2013 is obligatory on this NYE.
This year has been a whirlwind. We have had many blessings in the Thomuto house this year including living in our new teeny-weeny palace. We have spent great times with friends, run another marathon and each had our first DNF. We became Netflix junkies (House of Cards and re-runs of great 90′s tv have been particular faves). We have had highs and lows with our boy, Parker and even with an uncertain future ahead, we love him so very dearly. We celebrated the growing of our family with the wedding of my baby sister, Cait. We welcome Thomas and his whole family as our own. We said goodbye to my Grandma Thomas last week, capping 94 years of a life well lived. Christmas felt sparse but we were immersed with family, so a blessing was found within. Our employment blessings abound and we take each new career challenge as a new adventure. At the end of the day, we roll to the middle filled with thanks.
We bid adieu to 2013 and await the new adventures 2014 will bring.
