The Best Year

January brought us a beautiful retreat in the woods with our good friends. 

February blessed us with those two little pink lines on the 3 at-home pregnancy tests!

March took me to Indiana to visit my best friends and family. 

April reminded me of the greatest sacrifice made by my loving Savior. 

May told me I was going to be a mother to a precious girl!

June whisked us away on a romantic get-away to celebrate one year of marriage. 

July flew me on an adventure to Texas to visit my closest friend!

August surprised us with a new job opportunity for Ryan. 

September gave us a new home in a rural California town. 

October blessed us with the safe arrival of our daughter, Nova ♡

November showed us how to be good parents and love unconditionally.

December filled our hearts with gratitude for good friends, loving family and the best year. 

It’s no surprise that 2017 treated us well. With the arrival of Nova and amazing opportunities, we are so grateful. There were endless blessings that came to us this year. The things that were good completely outweigh our financial troubles, pregnancy difficulties and other day-to-day trials. 2017 taught me SO much. 

I learned how to be grateful for the tiniest things. 
I learned how to be a forgiving and charitable wife. 
I learned how to deliver a freaking baby!! ;) 
I learned how to nurture and love unconditionally. 
I learned even more how to have an eternal perspective.
I learned (and am still learning) that hard things pass and when it seems unbearable, pray. 

2018 has some really big shoes to fill but I couldn’t be more thrilled to see what those 12 months will bring us this time! I hope everyone has a fun and safe New Year!
