Goodbye, sweet 2015!

2015 is coming to a close, and has me looking back on a year’s worth of sweet memories, difficult moments, goals achieved, and the faithfulness of God. Here are a few highlights…

The precious bond between these two sisters has gotten nothing but bigger, sweeter, and closer.

A few family photos – a couple professional, and lots of camera phone. 😉

A few birthdays for all of us. 😉

and this little girl turned ONE!

 

This boy had several professional goals and accomplishments met this year.

While this girl accomplished her 2015 goal of running a 5k every quarter… and also decided to donate 10″ of her hair.

…and somebody else got a haircut too (her first!).

A health scare with this lovebug reminded us of the faithfulness, goodness, and mercy of our God. Her health is now perfectly perfect, and we are grateful for a miraculous God.

Quality time with family is always time well spent. ❤

A business trip to Toronto resulted in a 3,000-mile, week-long roadtrip with 2 kids under 3, and was the trip of a lifetime.

Lots of sweet, normal days at home…

…and some time at the beach.

New friends brought into our lives…

…and time spent with old ones.

And plenty of time with my favorite person. #HunkOfBurningLove

…then this little blog o’mine got a face-lift.

And our Thanksgiving Day ended with us being even more thankful then when we started it. A hit-and-run that resulted with the bulk of the impact being inches from our baby. As it was, the window shattered and partially collapsed on our 1-year-old with handfuls of broken glass covering her chest and neck. The back axle badly bent, glass covered every inch of the van… and we all walked away with no major injuries. A few more inches could have resulted in a devastating head-on-collision or a direct hit to the baby’s car-seat. Another testimony to our God’s sweet mercy… He is enough. ❤

Another year of sweet memories, time together, and seeing God’s faithfulness remain steadfast… He never changes, He is always enough. I’m exited about new memories and experiences in 2016, but, in all truth, I’m happy with lots of things staying the same. These days of laundry, cuddles, diapers, snuggles, giggles, dishes, and kisses are the glory days. Happy New Year, sweet friends!
