Out with the old

Just a few hours left in 2012. We are repeating last year's festivities and hosting another kid-friendly party Inviting 3 families over sounds like a small party, but once we have 8 girls under the age of 6 in the house I doubt it will feel small.

I don't know why but I already feel more likely to cry for my boy tonight than I did during Christmas.
2012 was a  good year, a fantastic year compared the the 2 before it, but it has put me another year further away from Reid and the person I used to be and that's always going to be hard.

Happy New Year to everyone out there. I hope that 2013 is a lucky year for us all or at the very least a not totally crap-tastic year. (Got to manage expectations right? It's not like anyone here is a bright-eyed optimist.)

Hey, I hope your 2013 is as wonderful as it can be, you deserve it. x

Happy 2013!

I know what you mean about how it hurts to place another year between when we lost, and when she was here. New Year's is such a bittersweet holiday.
