2013 Top Moments

I had a lot of great memories from this past year, and it definitely has made me grateful to have this blog. It is so neat to be able to look back and really enjoy life’s moments:)

In no particular order:

I became an Aunt! We are all so excited by this little baby, and she truly has changed my life.

Only Aunts can give hugs like a mother, keep secrets like a sister and share love like a friend.

I organized some amazing Baby Showers! I love celebrating special moments with those closest to me.

My sister’s baby shower was so much fun to plan.  It is always fun when I get to plan an event with my little sister. We are such a good team.

We had pictures from each week of the pregnancy, so we decided to pick 4 at random and have guests guess which week it was. We only had 3 winners!

I took a leap of faith, and made myself and my husband healthier.

So close!!

So close!!

 

My husband and I ran our first marathon!

WE DID IT!

WE DID IT!

And we ended the year with some sad news about our 4 legged child.

I am adding this to the list, because sometimes terrible news can be a blessing. As soon as we got over the initial shock that our lives were changing, we immediately realized we had been prioritizing the wrong things. We gave up our traveling plans in a heartbeat, gave up my husbands dream car without hesitation, and started focusing on what matters. I really think 2014 is going to be one of the best years we have spent together out of the last 7 years of being in each others lives. It might be one of the toughest years, but God is allowing us a little more time with our baby to celebrate life’s precious moments, and at this moment that is enough.

I want to wish you all a Happy New Year and a year filled with good health, happiness and love.
