At the beginning of the year I started this blog as a creative outlet for myself.
Oh and I met Michelle Obama!
The first few months of the year we were busy getting plugged into our Bible study and opening our home to many people, mostly college students. I was also in two of my closest friends' weddings.
I also failed at taking pictures of our life - whoops.
In May we went to the beach twice: once with my family and once
with Caleb's family. We had gorgeous weather both trips
and loved the time we were able to spend with our families!
In the summer Caleb was looking to switch jobs, so we were busy traveling for different interviews.
This picture was from the 18 hours we were in Nashville.
Our favorite part of the year was our vacation to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons!
August marked the arrival of my first nephew! He is the sweetest little boy!
At the end of the summer, Caleb accepted a job and two weeks later
we moved away from our first home together.
In September I ran my first race!
In November we visited Caleb's grandparents' farm.
We were able to spend Thanksgiving weekend with my whole family!
We celebrated our second married Christmas together with lots of Christmas activities.
Looking back, this year did not turn out like we expected. Caleb was enrolled to go back to school for his MBA, meaning we were staying where we were for a few more years. Then everything changed: Caleb got a new job, we're living in a different state, and we're looking for a house to settle down in here! I'm so thankful that our lives are ultimately in the Lord's hands, and that He is in control - not us! We are so incredibly happy where we are and praise the Lord for all He's blessed us with!
