If I’m being honest, 2013 wasn’t the greatest, especially if I compared it with 2012. There were good moments, for sure, like traveling to Amsterdam and Paris, celebrating our wedding in the U.S., and holding our third annual Thanksgiving in Spain. I made friends, met new people, and had a lot of fun.
But 2013 was, for the most part, a difficult year. Mario’s job kept him constantly away from home. I felt lost in a big city like Madrid and found myself missing my Spanish home.
I’ve become a little disillusioned with blogging and with the world surrounding it. I’m not sure that it’s for me, at least in the way I’ve been approaching it. I remember when blogging was fun, when I didn’t feel pressure to have pageviews or comments, and when I wrote for myself (and my parents, maybe). I read those posts and hear a voice I feel has been lost lately. I’m not sure how to get that back.
That being said, I do know that I am incredibly lucky to have found my media naranja, and together we will overcome the obstacles before us. One step at a time!
Here’s to 2014!
