Happy New Year!

Wow, its crazy how fast time goes. 2013 was fun, I had a few challenges that I conquered with success and I feel like I am going into 2014 with a stronger mental mind frame.  Hello 2014! This year has a lot in store for my family & I am super excited.

I believe in capturing as many moments in life, especially of your children, because you simply don’t get those moments back. On New Years Eve, I spent my morning looking though pictures of me and my family and I thank God for my Husband and Beautiful daughter. My husband is my best friend, we’ve dated since we were teenagers and he’s just the strongest, most gentle soul I know. I’m so thankful for him. I love him so much, sorry to get all “mushy” (LOL!) but I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us in the future.

A few memorable moments in our 2013 year:
