i fear i won't miss you much. this year has been, well, a lot. sometimes too much. sometimes not enough. i suppose that's true for every year but especially this one. this year has been heavy. heavy in the grown up way that i suppose i should have expected when i was so excited to turn thirty. give me thirty, i said. and thirty i got.
we left our church and found a new one, a move i was so hesitant to make but so glad we did. cam left his job and started a new one, a move he was not at all hesitant to make and he's so glad he did. he argued in front of the seventh circuit court of appeals and had a two-day bench trial in federal court. i started teaching at my local quilt shop. i started quilting, really, and quilted a lot.
we said good bye to mabel this year.
we lost two pregnancies this year.
and then our washer broke.
so long, 2012.
dear 2013, please be light.
