It was one of the best things to happen in a long time.
Why? Because the adventures began when Lucy bit the dust.
And as I sit here and reflect over 2014, I wonder why it seemed more packed with adventures than other years.
Maybe it was the push to get outside my comfort zone.
Maybe it was because Jesus dumped love on me ALL THE TIME.
Maybe it was because I was looking for the awesome to happen.
Regardless of the reason, 2014 was an epic year, and I am pretty sure that 2015 is going to be even more fabulous, filled with grand adventures and shenanigans.
I thought it would be fitting to use photos to reflect over the past year.
But, Facebook.... no offense, your year in review is crap.
You limit my pictures and give me no place to tell awesome stories... #solame
And so I march to the beat of my own drum - per usual.
In no particular order and in every sense of the word awesome, I present...
Elizabeth's Grand Adventures of 2014
It's always good to start the year with #SuperHeroFriday
Which morphs into this....
And closes out the year with this..... And yes, our staff meeting was Super Hero Themed. And there were capes. Lots of capes.
If you travel to Vegas with your bestest, you should always wear Minion hats. Always.
When visiting Jessica in Cali, make sure you visit grand museums, eat sketchy Thai food and have a spiritual awakening at TBN.
When your sister comes to town, you should ALWAYS practice your duck face and find Captain America..... Because, you just should.
If you find yourself without a car, and the bus system decides to fail you, be creative.
Then tweet about it...
Because if you do, U-Haul might just put your photo on the side of 64 trucks that are currently in 58 cities across the USA..... #uhaulfamous
Speaking of the bus.... I met some pretty sweet folks and overheard some seriously disturbing conversations.
Once again, the MS Walk blew my mind and got me super pumped for next year!
At the beginning of the summer I enrolled in a program that will certify me as a holistic health coach. I am halfway through the program and I am totally stoked to see where this path will lead me!
Two of my dear sweet friends got hitched this year, and being apart of their special days was incredible!
Meet Penelope Rue #nuffsaid
I get to work with the most fabulous people ever, for the best organization ever and with the best department ever! Life is awesome!
Also got to see not one, but TWO oceans!
And my beautiful 97 year old great grandmother <3
Ending it all with a white Thanksgiving and some epic time with my best friend.
As I timeline my year with photos, I am totally blown away with how many cool opportunities the Lord gave me this year.
He totally blew my mind on so many different levels.
He loved me through some really challenging moments. He gave me laughter when I needed it most. Comfort when my heart was hurting. Lightness when the reality of life was bringing me down. And hope for the future.
Because no matter how crazy life gets or how complicated we make it, HE always brings light, laughter, hope, adventures, shenanigans and whatever other term you use to describe your life.
He loves us.
Always has and always will.
Happy New Year Everyone - it's been incredible!
