i posted this on instagram + wanted to have it here too! happy new year :)
...there are only a kabillion of these floating around + that makes me happy because it means people loved their year enough to document it + then share it again slideshow style. choosing my photos for mine was one of the more challenging things I did today because photos for me are captured moments that I cherish so deeply. 2013 was bittersweet for our family, with the birth of our abel man + niece arrow being the sweet + the loss of my daddy, the bitter that still rocks my soul daily. bitter or sweet circumstances, I still stand in awe of my Lord + Savior + am grateful for each day + every blessing. we serve a loving God + I believe good things will continue to happen in 2014.
