Rewind....

Sassy posted a song today that was meant to describe the last year of her life. I had never heard it before, but liked it IMMENSELY so. :0) You should definitely check it out.

Anyway, she asked her readers to play along. I thought...that should be fairly easy, right? Not so much. Because honestly...the last 12 months I have had A LOT going on.

There were times when I felt like I was going to go CRAZY!



I decided to go back to college...what was I thinking?



I went through a little PTA hell..



I made a goal in January to get fit...and haven't quite gotten there....



I've learned a bit about myself and what I need to do to overcome my own personal demons...
Yes...even perky happy Ashlee has struggled this last year. I just don't usually let people see it. :0)



And yet...with everything that has gone on this last 12 months...I can reflect back and still feel truly blessed. I have a wonderful hubby, two amazing kids, a roof over my head, and food on my table.

Yes, I am blessed.

oh Ash, I can't wait to listen to all these. They seem to be loading super slow so I might have to wait and check tomorrow.

I actually picked two songs this year, I'll post the second another time with my reasons. But I liked how you have a song for every major thing you did. :)

See you later girlie! I 'm off for another Canoing Adventure with JimmyEW and my Niece and her boyfriend tomorrow. Liked it so much, we're going again.

...and this so was not a comment, but really was pretty much an email. lol!

I LOVED them all Ash, so great. Harper Valley made me want to watch the movie, I love Crazy, it was my Chicago theme song, all of them were really good. Now I've added Return to Neverland; Peter and Jane to Kiki's Netflix queue. :)

hi ashlee,
yup, you're sure right. we are blessed. and it feels better to reflect more on that than on the cruddy stuff.

blessings and light,
