Ferris Bueller said: "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
The past two days, this quote has been in my head and when I logged in to our blog today, I realized that I haven't been stopping to look at life at all this year. There is so much that I should have recorded and I haven't. My memory is bad and I hate that there are things that happened this year and I won't be able to share with Gracie and Lucas.
2011 was not a kind year. I feel like the past 4 years could be designated that way, but when I stop and reconsider it, I realize that I have something special that I did not have 4 years ago: Gracie and Lucas. Despite all of the frustration, tears, and frustration of the past year, the joys of having Gracie and Lukie here with me have made everything so much better.
2012 has a lot of things to look forward to: a family vacation, my 40th birthday, and Gracie and Lukie's 5th birthday. There is so much more. The plan is to come back and post more frequently, even if it is something short. We have so much going on and I don't want to forget a single thing!
