Of the wishes I wrote down, the one that would have fallen to the wayside after about a week if I had anything to do with it was the "Fresh Flowers Every Week" promise. Super Hubby picked up my slack after that first week after my birthday and each and every week for one whole year I was greeted with fresh flowers (EVERY WEEK!). Honestly Super Hubby, you ARE the best! I'm pretty sure that's the only promise kept on those numbers and I had nothing to do with it. What's that say about me? I don't even want to think about it.
Date Nights were few, workouts were non-existent. I didn't take a photography class but I did get a new camera (thanks, again, Super Hubby). I've decided I'm really not that adventurous when it comes to dining and I've got the "frugal gene" that prevents me from paying those prices at Anthropologie, Chico's, Talbot's and Coldwater Creek. The "More Family Time" wish would have been counter intuitive had I attended a blog conference ( I chose the family). The Etsy Shop is still planned (one day), the book is in progress, along with eating better and drinking water.
|My bouquet finale from Super Hubby!|
Did I succeed at anything on my own? Well, yes, I think I did. Along with achieving more family time, I upgraded my makeup drawer to include eye liner and mascara. I visited with friends more, I smiled more, and, without a doubt, I always gave God all the glory because without Him, I would be nothing. We enjoyed unusual hiking trails (thanks, again, to Super Hubby's love of discovery).
Looking back, not much to rave about. Most of the things I accomplished, I accomplished because of Super Hubby. I like that, though. It's proof that I'm a better person because we're together. We make a terrific team: peas and carrots, peanut butter and jelly, Peeps and jellybeans. But, I think my year as a 40-year old hit new highs not on the list; ones that, at the time I could not have even imagined. Who knew my business would be in full force this past year? Who knew Kiddo would have a remarkable 5th-grade year? Who knew my blog readership would more than double from a year ago? Who knew? So, this year, I'm not writing anything down, I'm just remaining open to what's instore and enjoying the ride, come what may. But do the weekly flowers have to stop, Super Hubby?
