So, I've decided to come back to my little desolate place on the web.

It's only been a year, a year that I could have probably used this means to escape, vent, and free my mind of whats been ailing me.

A year and a ride. A year that had it's amazing ups and craptastic downs. A year. Another year older, maybe a little wiser, definitely not richer. A year. Twelve months of trials and tribulations.

I saw my family for the first time in over 20 years. I saw my cousins, 2 of which were babies when I left Massachusetts, two I had never met. All of which are beautiful, smart, fun, and awesome. I saw my aunts and uncles, whom I missed so much, and am so glad they are all back in my life.

I met friends, beautiful mommas who all have toddlers Beckett's age. Beautiful women who enrich my life daily. Beautiful women that I am close too, that I can't imagine life without, that are my sisters, and would be there at a moments notice if needed. Beautiful women that held me up when I was down, gave sage advice when I needed it, lent me a shoulder when I cried.

A year. a year that proved my strength, and showed me my weaknesses. A year that many decisions were made, a year that sent us, as a family struggling, but surviving. A year that set in motion the changes that will make us a stronger unit.

So, I'm picking this up again. There's a lot that's going thru my brain. There's a lot that I'm going to challenge myself to do. There's a lot that I want to bitch about.

It's nice to be back here :)
