Oh man this came too soon! Seriously, too too soon!! Whatever, we'll roll with it. This 2015 has been nothing short of amazing for me. I got married, had my baby, moved into a house, my father in law had a successful heart transplant, my brother came to visit from Georgia, had fabulous event experiences, met new people, my husband deciding to get his masters, his new job, our new blessing on the way(wink wink)...God has blessed us so much. As corny as it seems it really makes me want to cry thinking of how blessed we are. My husband and I talk all the time about How good our God is. Yes, 2015 also came with negative moments but I never focus on those ever! What good does it do? This coming year Im most looking forward to our bible study we'll be hosting at our house. Mostly because its happening in January haha This coming year I have a few Resolutions I'd like to accomplish for once and what better way to hold myself accountable than by writing them down and sharing them with you all :) If you feel your year wasn't as good as you'd liked it to be then pick one fond moment and focus all your energy on that and how good it made you feel. Heck, choose more than one and watch how your perspective changes! This NYE we'll be spending it surrounded by our families and asleep by 9pm haha Kidding! Wait, Im not. I literally cant stay awake past 10pm without a struggle anymore :( But if you're going out tonight be safe, don't drink and drive, kiss the one(s) you love and see you all in the New Year!!
****2016 New Years Resolutions****
-Have more patience 
-Plan the most amazing vacation for us(happening in February!)
-Work on my shop
-Keep my blogging consistant
-Finish unpacking all of our household goods(I know Im terrible)
-Take my daughter on even more M/D outings
-Love my husband even more
-Be consistant with hosting bible study here
-Delete numbers I dont text
-Cook dinner 3 times a week
-More volunteer work
-Finish a devotional(I always start new ones half way through)
Ok so my resolutions are more like a "to-do" list but these are pretty hard core for me haha I'll add or subtract as the year goes on but my big big BIG resolution is just to become a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, stranger...I want to live my life in such a way that people want to know my God and enjoy my presence. I want to help change the lives of others around me and help any way that I can.

Tis the Season

Three weeks since my last post! I've wanted to blog but so much has happened so fast. Good and bad of course. (in case you thought my life was perfect) I choose to never publicize my problems unless it's going to benefit someone else by sharing how I resolved them. The remainder of this month will be scattered around with fewer posts until the start of next year. I have categories up top for a reason but Im not sure when I drifted off and started to do more of a daily diary haha This coming January I plan on getting back to that so stay tuned :) Also, these are a few of the Christmas shoot photos we took to get our first ever Christmas cards ready. I want to make it a tradition but Im not sure how we'll top these next year haha Oh wait, I do ;) I'll share when the time is right ;) but anyway, see you on some of my upcoming last posts of the year!
