Recap of 2014 |

What’s the most memorable thing that happened in 2014 for you?

About Natalie

Natalie is a North Carolina single mom who enjoys the simple things in life such as live music, great food, travel. When she’s not blogging, you can probably find her making graphics, binging netflix or spending time with friends.


  1. Here’s to hoping for a great 2015 for you! I won’t lie I laughed at your Bieber shirt and then said “awwww” lol too funny.

  2. Meeting Donnie Wahlberg was the most memorable thing that happened to me last year. I don’t know if anything can even top that – meeting him was an awesome moment for me.

  3. OMG, the Bieber t-shrit. Where can I get one?! Seriously, that is so cool!

  4. What a fun recap of 2014. I wish I had taken more photos to do something like this. I think the most memorable thing that happened to me in 2014 was moving from the country to the city. I’m much happier now that I don’t have to drive forever just to get a gallon of milk, lol.

  5. What a great year you had!!! Loved looking back at all your 2014 memories!! Good luck in 2015!! Can’t wait to read about it 🙂

  6. This is a great way to look back at your year. My biggest moment in 2014 was selling our home and buying a new one.

  7. Sounds it was a fun year and you sure did meet Tyler a lot lol, I love reading recap posts.

  8. 2014 was such a big year and tons of things happened; good and bad. I’m very excited for 2015 though, I have tons of hope coming into it!

  9. 2014 – I can’t believe it’s already over! I gave birth to my third beautiful boy!

  10. Sorry about the broken elbow. I hope it’s better now. We had a wonderful 2014 and we are excited for 2015. Here’s wishing you a great year!

  11. I love your Justin Bieber shirt! Every mom of a teen needs one

  12. I love your monthly recap. This would be a great way to record our family years.

  13. I had a good laugh at the Bieber shirt. I need one. I can relate to your panic attack. I get them often and have been on/ off medication for them for years. I am sorry you had one that landed you in the ER.

  14. What a fun way to recap the year. I love that you did it this way!

  15. You had an amazing year and I love the way you recap it. Have another amazing year.

  16. Eliz Frank says:

    You had a wonderful and colorful year! Her’s to many more delightful moments in 2015!

  17. What a great idea to recap the year on the blog- I know some things you wish you didn’t have to recap, but cool to see all the fun things that went on throughout the year. I feel you pain with the panic attack- they are horrible and so very scary.

  18. Looking back through a year’s worth of pictures is so much fun! I got to visit Florida for the first time ever in my 30 some years. That was a highlight for me!

  19. What a great post and recap of 2014. I was happy to see 2014 go as well. Congrats on your weight loss.

  20. Wishing you a super crafty 2015! Looks like 2014 was pretty awesome!

  21. Wow, what a year 2014 was for you..! It was lovely to see the family photos, and congratulations on the weight loss! I’m sorry to hear about some of the challenges (like the anxiety attack), but am glad that you made it through. Cheers to a great 2015. 🙂


  22. Michelle Hwee says:

    Wow you definitely had an amazing 2014! Happy New Year and wishing 2015 to be even more amazing!

  23. Looks like you had a great year. I need to do something like this a go back over 2014!

  24. Great photo recap … I love it! Sounds like you had a great year (well, aside from the broken elbow). I wish you the best for 2015!

  25. Great recap, I liked how it was short and sweet, but you still got the whole picture. Ouch…a broken elbow sounds painful. Thank goodness I haven’t had any broken bones…I don’t think I could stay still to for the recoup time. I think groundhogs are the cutest. I think 2 safe road trips for Thanksgiving and Christmas to Michigan was the highlight of my 2014.

  26. It sounds like you had one heck of a year. I need to look back and reflect on my year.

  27. What a year. I’m sorry about your health scares and may 2015 bring you plenty of love, laughs, blessings and tequila shots. Here’s to 2015.
