Dear 2015 Me #BehindTheBlogger

Dear 2015 Me,

You rocked this year!  You have come a long way from where you were at in Omaha a couple years before.  You started this year out at Daytona Beach, FL where you had never been before and tried to see your first sunrise over the ocean (but the darn clouds got in the way). 

You played softball on your church team and got I think third for the season? 

In March, you did something else you've never did before - went to Walt Disney World for the first time at age 37!  It was a blast!

Then in July, you did some crazy traveling.  You headed up to Ohio to see your mom for your birthday.  Then traveled with your friend and her family down through Chattanooga, TN and Senoia, GA to try to stalk some Walking Dead actors.  So much fun!  Then you decided at the last minute to join them on the gulf side of Florida and rent this crazy expensive condo for a couple of days but it was totally worth it!  That water was AMAZING.  One of your favorite things now is floating in a tube.

Then work got busy and your lease at your trailer came up (but you could still go to month to month).  A beach house came open for rent and you jumped on it and are now living at the beach!  You didn't have the nicest tenants below you but they soon got their just desserts (got evicted).  You've been going out and saying YES to many activities which the old Omaha Jovan wouldn't even fathom doing.  You are making lots of friends through church, your friends, and work. 

And then...you find a house right next door to where your good friend is living and you decide to spontaneously buy it like a crazy person!  Christmas was great - surrounded by your peeps and then your other peeps from Ohio are coming in to help you ring in 2016!  I think it has been an adventurous year and here's to 2016 being even crazy better!!!  Just keeping following your intuition and LOVE and not fear.  You're doing everything exactly right, girl!!!!

  1. Disney is amazing! It doesn't matter how old you are the magic never dies :-)

    1. You got that right, Montana! I felt like a kid being there. So much fun.

  2. You ARE doing everything exactly right. Your year sounds great! The Hubby and I are scared to move into just a bigger house. I couldn't imagine moving states. I want to take Hubby to Disney this year. He's almost 32 and has never been.

    1. You should totally take him! I had fun even at my age! And yeah - I always seem to be moving haha. I need to settle down in one place for a moment. Hopefully this will be it for a while! :)

  3. Ahh, I'd love to go to Walt Disney World! I went once when I was 6, but I only remember bits and pieces of it. It sounds like you had an amazing year! <3

    1. You should totally go back...it is so much fun even at my age!
