Gosh, 2014 was a crazy year. I had a super wordy post typed out in which I reflected on the past year, but ultimately decided not to post it. Though I personally benefited from the exercise of going through my year and putting some of its major events into words, it was more than I like to share here.
So instead, I’m going to highlight my favorite moments of 2014, just like I did last year. Because even though 2014 was tough, it still had more beautiful moments than I can count. God is so good and gracious and faithful. I hope you know that.
August is over. I think I participated in the August Break a whopping two times. I certainly had much higher expectations, but alas, the 31st is here and there’s nothing I can do about it.
I have decided to repeat the August Break in September, for myself. Because I am finally taking a break from school and September is the only month in sight where I won’t be stuck in front of my laptop and books for most of the day (there’s not much scope for the imagination in that).
In other news, I’m still in South Texas. I’ve been at my great-aunt’s family reunion all day and am getting this post in during a quick run back to the hotel. So far the day has been filled with lots of mingling and meeting new people, lots of family pictures, and lotería. When I return, the mariachi will have arrived and I’m hoping to grab another cup of the yummy pineapple juice I was enjoying in the photo above :)
