Goodbye 2013

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

I really like the beginning of a new year.  Fresh start, back on a schedule & I get to fill out my new calendar!! Is that strange?  I have to say that I'm really excited to say goodbye to 2013.  I have a love hate relationship with this year.


The Bad

The year started out with my dad recovering from open heart surgery.
We had a scare with our pregnancy & lots of testing done.  
I was put on bed rest & missed my sister in law's wedding.
My other sister in law was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I turned 30. 

The Good
Dad recovered from surgery & is active & healthy.  We are so thankful! 

Emma turned 2. 

My sister in law with breast cancer, kicked cancer's ass!!! 

We had the most precious baby boy who is perfectly healthy. We are so thankful & blessed.  

Being a mom of 2 has been the best adventure & brought me the most joy. 

Being able to watch Emma & Brady grow & love one another has brought much laughter & tears.
Friendships have deepened.  
 I joined Rodan +Fields Dermatologist as a consultant & it's has been an amazing few months in business.
New friendships have formed.
I turned 30.  

There is no doubt that like every year we've had ups & downs, but I'm so thankful that God's faithfulness never changes & that He is always there! This year I've really been able to see Him work in my life, through prayers of mine & of others more than ever.  

Goodbye 2013!!!
