A year in Review

Thank you my dear friends and followers for always being there and being my friend, this year has not always been easy but it has been worth it.

A year in Review

January- We celebrated my Mommas 53rd Birthday.
I also started menu planning this month and have never looked back. It is such a good feeling to wake in the morning and know what you are cooking that day and not wonder if you have all the ingredients etc.

February- Found out I was treated for something that I didn't have for 2 long years.  Even to this day I have no idea what I have going on, but hopefully this year we can find out, I still have nightly episodes even after having my IUD removed, but God has a plan for me and my life and I know I am going thru this for a reason.

Celebrated another Valentines Day with my one and only Valentine. This one marked 15 we have spent together :) Looking forward to many many more together.

Found out our family would be growing by two little feet- my sister and her husband were expecting.
Grandpa went to the hospital for his final time after having many strokes, heart attacks and seizures, they made the decision to keep him there for the rest of his days.
Got a new casual position, it was a great job and I loved every minute of it.

March- Celebrated my Father in law's 50 something birthday ;)
Had my bladder surgery scheduled and because of a flu, it got postponed

April- My baby brother was celebrated as he turned 23 
-Easter at my aunts house- it was nice to spend it with family
Had bladder surgery where they found no endometrosis or IC- so now I'm left without a diagnosis and my doctor discharged me because there is nothing she can do when they don't know what it is

The month started out with my losing my grandpa- he was one of my closest friends, losing him was the hardest thing I have had to deal with this year.  I went back home to NL for the funeral to do his tribute and to be with my family. We celebrated his life greatly
We celebrated 12 years of Marriage- my favourite one dozen years
We also took the greatest vacation we have been on to date- we were gone for 3 weeks, we travelled to so many US states, zoo's, parks, shopping, restaurants, visited with friends and family.

Was a quiet month for us as we were recovering from an awesome vacation

We survived our first major hurricane here with minimal damage to our property- we had lost electricity for 7 days though- that was tough
Celebrated our Baby Girl turning 11- she didn't want a big party this year so we took her and 2 friends to a amusement park and they had a great time

Was another quiet month as we prepared to move to a new house.
Celebrated my Grandpa's birthday
Lost my casual job and looking for a new job

Middle School for Brooke - that was hard on me- felt to surreal that she is growing up

My 32 birthday, my dad's birthday and my nephews birthday
My New Niece made her entrance into this world- Norah Rose
celebrated 4 years since my lung surgery and no problems since

Finished off all Christmas shopping super early
Started a new job that i enjoy

Christmas with just the three of us, something that we have never done before, but it has been a great time together with new traditions started and memories made.


  1. What a year for your Terri! Wishing you all the best in everything in the New Year!

  2. Sounds like a great year! I would really like to do better at meal planning this year. I'm glad it worked out so well for you.

  3. Last year was definitely a year of highs and lows for you. Looks like the highs outweighed the lows though. I hope that this year got off to a great start for you and your family. I wish you lots of happiness this year. Happy New Year!

  4. You've had a busy and trying year. I've never been in a hurricane but have seen some on TV that are enough to terrify me even though I'm not near the coast. Glad you were able to spend time together as a family and make new memories and traditions for Christmas.

  5. Sounds like you had a great year! I LOVE meal planning too!

  6. It sounds like you've had a really eventful year. I look forward to seeing what is in store for 2015!

  7. It sounds like you had a great year! Although, I am sorry to hear of your grandfather's passing. My grandpa died in 2009, he was a great man. It can be really hard to lose a grandparent. My thoughts are with you. I hope that 2015 brings about many brand new adventures and great joys!

  8. Overall it looks like you had a great year! All the best in the new one!

  9. I don't even want to think about my kids being in middle school! It will be hard for me too.

  10. looks like you have had a full year. I hope that 2015 is even better for you.

  11. You've had quite a year! I hope that 2015 brings much peace, happiness and health to you and your family. xo

  12. Even with the challenges, your year was marked by much to celebrate. My condolences on your Grandpa's passing. May 2015 bring you much joy!
