2015 Year In Review

2016 is here! 6 days into the New Year and things are going pretty smoothly. I was dreading the 4th when Jon would return to work after a good chunk of time off... I know I am not the only mama who felt this way. As much as I love the holiday season, I've also loved getting back into the swing of things. Ford went back to school yesterday and we are excited to resume regular outings and playdates. On top of Christmas, Disney, and New Years, we were actually pretty productive over the break, I love that! So 2015. What a year! Our family expanded in April and I never thought having 2 children would be so much fun. The transition has been wonderful and I thank God for that everyday. 2015 we watched Ford grow from a baby to a potty trained, incredibly smart, and wonderful big brother. Having a baby didn't slow us down. We launched our very own missional community group, traveled quite a bit, and watched my moms group thrive and grow. I've been reading my bible every morning of 2016 thus far and pray that I continue to have the desire to do so. I told Jon that this is kind of the first year in a while that I don't know what is next and I am embracing it... and loving it. I've always been a planner and known what was next and although we have an idea of what our year could hold, we are really excited to watch The Lord write our story for 2016. We want it to be His year. I compiled a list of some of my favorite/monumental blog posts of 2015, enjoy!
