We were going to go BIG for this post!
It was going to be the ‘cocktail dress and stiletto heels wearin’, fireworks exploding, dancing all the way until midnight on New Year’s Eve‘ kind of look back at 2013 post.
Ryan Seacrest was even going to host as we counted down our top projects!
But then, we realized that maybe it would just be OK to do a ‘sweats and ponytail wearin’, snuggled in on the couch watching movies and going to bed at 10pm on New Year’s Eve‘ look back on 2013 instead.
Because, sometimes when you look back over a year of your life you don’t always just see the grand, flashy moments, right?
Oh sure, we did some bigger projects…
And some smaller projects…
We had parties…
There was even some sewing…
We got personal…
And we even took this little ol’ blog on the road at places like the Haven Conference…
And the Country Living Fair…
But you know what? Those moments, well, those were more like the ”cocktail dress and stiletto heels wearin’, fireworks exploding, dancing all the way until midnight on New Year’s Eve‘ moments. They were fun and amazing and carefully planned out and executed.
And they were almost the best parts of 2013 for At the Picket Fence.
Because the BEST parts of 2013 for At the Picket Fence were the parts that maybe didn’t make it into blog posts or onto our Facebook page.
They were the connections we made with you.
The countless deeply personal and heart-felt emails.
The encouragement and support.
The comments you left telling us how much you relate to a story we’ve shared and sometimes even sharing your own stories with us.
The rallying around us when we were feeling low.
The laughing along with our frequent mis-adventures.
And coming back here time and time again to join us on our journey.
YOU were the best part of 2013!
You bless us each and every day and we are incredibly grateful that we have the privilege of sharing our hearts and our homes with you.
We pray that 2014 will be a blessed year for you and that you always know that you have friends you can count on right here At the Picket Fence!
