2013 has been filled with many, many blessings. I do not want this to be a brag post, and I hope no one takes this as a “my life is better than yours” post. I just think reviewing the blessings of an entire year can put things in perspective during the hard times. Reviewing the past year has been an opportunity to thank God again for all of these sweet memories and to recognize that none of it could have happened without Him! I had so much fun making this post and looking at all the old pictures! I'm sure I missed many moments, but I had to draw the line somewhere 🙂 It is by faith that we live our life, and it is through faith and through Jesus that we strive to interact and build a relationship with the world. So grateful for my husband Tom, my son Sky, and all of the family and friends who have supported us through the past year. You all are truly amazing and make my life worn living.
Hope you all enjoy my highlights of the last year!
