Happy New Year’s Day to all and welcome to 2015! More importantly, welcome back to this fun blog and my lone resolution this year to write more on a regular basis. I’m not sure what was stopping me from writing so much last year, but I think it’s time to get back to the basics and get my opinion out for all to read (if they so choose).
What’s weird is that the more I thought about what was holding me back in 2014, the more I kept finding various excuses and trying to pinpoint one particular “life” event which I have failed to uncover. Don’t get me wrong, the hubs and I had plenty of great things going on in 2014. Lots of travels to places near and far, and lots of happenings both big and small! Unfortunately, I was having a mental block of sorts. You see, this blog is only meant to express the funny and uplifting stories (hence the name DiaryofaHappyWhiteGirl), and for whatever reason what I really wanted to write about was neither of these two things. I knew I needed to push through this and come to terms with how things had shaken out in the great game of LIFE, before I started acting like all was a-ok and writing about things that weren’t reflective of my normal “glass is always half-full” self!
Luckily, I now feel like I can be open and honest with this blog, even on days that aren’t so great. I don’t have to be the happy, white girl all the time and that’s OK! That being said, Adam and I were blessed with the news that we were going to be parents in July and found out in November that the bun in the oven is a baby BOY! His name is Michael Gordon Vazquez and we can’t wait to meet him in late March 2015. We also found out that sweet Michael has a heart defect, called Ebstein’s Anamoly, so we are working through what that means upon his arrival and pray that he will be able to lead a normal life. To follow Michael’s story feel free to check out our Caringbridge site here: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/michaelgordon2
I look forward to seeing many of your faces during 2015 and to continue to share life with you! I’ll always try to keep this blog as free-spirited and fun as possible, but know that I’m human, and some days may be easier than others! Here is to a wonderful 2015 and to great friends and family along the way!
