2014: Worth the Wait




Last week Ron asked me if I was sad it’s over. He was referring to the wedding, but he may as well have been talking about all of 2014. Because seriously. I don’t know how anyone could have had a better year than us. It was such an enchanting trip around the sun. Filled with overwhelming happiness, and the very best kind of madness.

So it would be understandable if I were sad to see it go. But honestly? I’m okay. When the clock strikes midnight tomorrow I will look back fondly, but not longingly.

Because we’re here. That place we were trying to get to? We made it.

And this life…oh man. It totally beats the pants off the glittery image I’d held in my heart as motivation while working and waiting.


Sure. We want more.

A home.

But even if all those things elude us, we could never complain. Even when the other shoe drops. When heartache kicks us off the cloud we’re floating on, we will still be filled with praise.

Because this year we stepped into the light at the end of a tunnel…and it. was. stunning. Bright and beautiful beyond our expectations. Everywhere we looked, we saw God’s gifts. In our relationship with each other, our family, and our friends. In our health. And in all the sweet, funny, long-anticipated moments.

It was a year in which our spirits soared so high, the memories will keep us afloat during any future lows.

Thank you for being a part of it. Whether you celebrated with us in person or just while following along with this little blog…we’re forever grateful for all the kind thoughts and well wishes. We’ll do our best to pay it back and forward any chance we get.

So….yeah. I guess that’s a wrap! There’s not much left to say but Hallelujah. And Amen.
What is done and yet to come…Amen.


Rather than do a written recap of all the major events from this year, I made a slideshow. It’ll probably bore most people but I ugly cry happy tears every time I watch it. Just like I do every time I go through my wedding photos we got back yesterday (to be shared soon!). I really need to get it together before my face freezes that way. ;)

Happy New Year to you and yours.


Karen & Ron
