The Wonderful Year That Was

Hey 2017, thank you. Can my family and I give you a big bear hug?

You see, we may have started on a different note - lost my regular homebased job the previous year that paid half of our bills - still, I'm glad you turned out and finished well. 

On January, not just making it as "eveyone's New Year's resolution" but truly doing it, I chose to have a more active lifestyle. I jogged in the morning and did HIITs as regular as I can. We also ate more nutritious food. The next month, I decided to go back to working away from home. I love my chill SAHM life but there are times that we just got to adult real hard. So on March 8th, I bravely headed the Marketing Department of an iconic clothing brand while mothering my gradeschool girl and managing our home. Our family was slowly adjusting to the changes, I was doing well at work but God, being the Alpha and the Omega, had other plans for us. I got pregnant on April. 

The months that came after weren't all best but those definitely had such wonderful stories to tell. Perhaps, I should write about my 9-month journey with our rainbow baby in a separate post. Extra, extra: She's sleeping beside me as I type these away using my phone. Can I use it - the hashtag blessed? 'Cause really, I am.

All praises and glory be Yours, my Lord. 

The past year was hard to beat but I'm sure 2018 and the years ahead can always outdo it.
