Song-osity: Measure a Year

Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes...
How do you measure, measure a year?

What a year.

I can easily say that this year had some serious highs and some lows and a fair amount of turbulence.

But, it all works out in the end and as 2014 draws to a close, I am content and able to reflect on the year from a very good spot.

2014 saw me wrap up my second full year of teaching, but also saw me having to say good-bye to KSA and my second family. But just as I had to close that chapter I started an amazing new chapter at Maimo, where I may be exceedingly busy, but so happy.

2014 was a year filled with fun with friends and loved ones. Skiing, Red Sox games, Nickel Creek, Book of Mormon, Violet, Cirque de Soleil, New Hampshire, shooting my first wedding, The Nutcracker, lots of movie nights, and time just hanging out.

2014 was a year filled with family. It was the year Ronan turned one and Noam turned four. I had five days with the boys and Avi in Boston, and flew out to Portland twice. I watched mom go into surgery and was eternally thankful when it was successful.

Through it all, I've laughed, I've cried and I've tried to soak it all up.

So as I stand on the verge of 2015, I'm ready to embrace what it may bring.

It's time now to sing out, though the story never ends...

And! Come link up and join the Good.Random.Fun. each Monday, right here!

It's always interesting to look back at the year about to close to see what has happened in our lives. Having survived it all gives one hope for the next year. Have a happy and safe new year, Tamar.

You have had a year that tested you but also rewarded you - I think most years have a way of doing that, just some are more pronounced.

Happy New Years Tamar!

I haven't taken time to reflect on the passing year. This was a nice round up--I need to do the same.

It's funny how the end of a year always gives us so much to reflect on. Your photos are beautiful and I'm so glad to see you still coming around my blog. Best wishes for 2015
