Our Year in Review

2014 was good to us. Better yet, God was good to us in 2014. We had some ups and some downs but doesn't every year? 2014 taught me that Jesus is always faithful and His timing is perfect and divine.

Here are some of my favorite moments, posts, and memories from 2014. 


We spent a ton of time out in the cold.

God used Linc to show me how much He cares about the little things in our life. 

We made ice cream soup.

We packed a bunch into a few weeks, like playing outside, coffee dates with friends, and baking cookies.


I got overwhelmed.

I learned patience from crushed up goldfish.

I did a life lately post.

I updated y'all on my favorite boy.


My brother came for a visit.

I wrote one of my most popular posts on being satisfied.

My dad had a heart attack, but by the grace of God came home just fine.

We went to a Christmas tree lighting with Pearce and McKenzie. 

We took a walk that blessed my heart so much.

We spent our first Christmas as a family of nine and it was our best Christmas yet!
