Ready or not, 2018 is here.
…and personally, I think I’m ready. No offense to 2017, but I think we all could use a fresh start.
Though I’m usually all about new year resolutions, I’m taking it easy on myself this go-around. No resolutions; just a general attempt to do my best in 2018 (…and drink more water, because that will forever be an unattained goal of mine).
Anyhow, here’s what’s been going on recently.
- A good time was had by all this Christmas in Little Rock, Arkansas. Becca and Matt stayed in Houston with the in-laws and Sarah was only able to stick around for a few days, so the holiday this year included a lot of Mom/Dad/Kat bonding time, and it was bliss!
- If I’ve learned anything in the past few years it’s that December doesn’t just equate to Christmas season; it also equals engagement season. This past Saturday, my dear, wonderful friend Shiloe got engaged to her boyfriend Chris. It was such a joy-filled day and I actually got to play a small role in their proposal—how fun is that? Shiloe + Chris are the coolest, most God-glorifying people, and I can’t wait for them to marry this summer!
- I already know that 2018 will be pretty great due to these two simple words: ROYAL WEDDING. Anticipating the wedding coverage, the sure-to-be gorgeous gown, and little George as a ring bearer (are ring bearers a thing in royal weddings?) makes my heart all aflutter! One of my favorite stories to come out of the Harry/Megan marriage annoucement was this hilarious montage that bid farewell to Harry’s “third wheel” lifestyle. See below for further explanation.
- And finally, the week before Christmas I made the trek out to Argyle, TX to see my Grandparent’s house. Though they’ve both passed, I still like to drive past the sweet home on Brush Creek Road for some good ol’ nostalgia from time to time. It’s funny, what I truly loved about that place were the people who lived there, and yet, sometimes it feels like I miss their house like I miss an old friend.
Ok, time for me to run. Happy first weekend of 2018!
