Happiest of new years!

I think my first resolution for the new year is to STOP writing things like “I can hardly believe that it’s already September” or “I can hardly believe that it’s December 31st” as I just started to type. Time passes quickly. And it’s time to pay attention.

That’s my goal in 2014: attentiveness.

I’m not getting any younger. Neither are my sweet little girls. My marriage is getting older, too. And since I’ve finished my doctorate, apparently if I don’t get moving on some new projects, I’ll be old news fast.

At least for today, I can take a minute to look back on this whirlwind year to be thankful for the high moments and at peace with the low moments.

Among the high points:

My two most read posts circulated widely:

  • My love letter to my husband of seven years comes up consistently on Google searches and draws readers from around the world.
  • My thoughts on Mama, PhD made it to Freshly Pressed and brought me incredibly supportive and thoughtful new readers.

I contributed to other websites including Inside Higher Ed and Conditionally Accepted:

Thank you for reading, for commenting, and for sharing what I’ve written. I’m looking forward to an incredible 2014.
