Feb. 11 2015 we said goodbye to one of the greatest men I knew, my Pappy. He had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's for over 10 years and did not let it bring him down. My Mimi was his saving grace.
He was truly an amazing human being that you could be completely terrified of (because of his size and stern look) to the love of his big bear hugs, waves from the carport as we left, and nickname he branded you with for the rest of your life whether you liked it or not.
I have the best nickname name [literally], best egg.
His friend, Wilbur Clyde
circa 89, little (big) ali
Also in February Jackson and I got us a little baby girl pup. Pound pup.
We decided to name her Lottie Lilly.
I graduated with my Masters in Special Education in April, which was fabulous because it opened the door to my job I took this year at Radney Elementary in Alex City. It's truly a wonderful school.
I also had two best friends say "I do" this past summer and we had the opportunity to celebrate their new beginnings.
Also one of my best friends had a baby girl this summer.
Best friend got engaged to Jackson's best friend.
Let the wedding planning beginning. [MOH status].
Found out I was going to be an aunt (again) to a little baby boy.
We had our second Christmas at Children's Harbor.
AND I got a beautiful nephew in December!

Maybe I will make one of my new years resolutions to be better at blogging
for the year of 2016. New beginnings are happening people.
