Happy [almost] New Year! As 2019 comes to a close, we reflect on how much our lives have changed over the past 12 months.
We welcomed our sweet Little Buddy into the world and began the journey of parenthood–a trek that is impossible to describe in just one word. It has grown me, refined me, and brought to light all my selfish tendencies.
While we did less traveling than in years past, we enjoyed long weekends in Florida and New York City. We spent a lot of time with family and friends, and Mr. Handsome painted what I consider to be some of his best works of art yet. We grieved the loss of Mr. Handsome’s beloved grandfather and celebrated new life with the birth of Little Buddy’s younger cousin. Oh, and Mr. Handsome and I both became slightly addicted to coffee. Mr. H blames parenthood, but I like to think it’s solely based on taste. It’s. Just. So. Delicious.
I remember ringing in the new millennium 20 years ago…and the hysteria that was felt across the world as people wondered if something terrible would happen when the clock struck 12am on January 1, 2000. What were your experiences?
We have no idea what the next decade will bring, but we know that God will be with us through it all. When 2030 rolls around, Mr. Handsome will have known each other for almost 20 years. And we are hoping to have a few more little buddies in our life. My how time flies.
We are still deciding how we will ring in 2020. We were invited to a New Year’s party, but after all the busyness of Christmas, we might end up on the couch watching our favorite show on Amazon Prime. Any guesses as to what TV series we are currently watching?
Happy New Year to all our wonderful readers! With love from Ellie, Mr. Handsome, and Little Buddy.
