Saying goodbye to the last year! Wether it is a quiet evening at home, just the three of us or surrounded by some of our favorites, I am always thankful.
Thankful to our Lord for the past year. And oh what a year it was! Lots of ups and downs, as every year brings. But January 1st brings a new chapter in our book. 365 days of new memories, opportunities and adventures. Keeping a journal along the way ( because it is the perfect way for me to remember everything).
I am starting the new year with even more love for Jesus, a grateful heart and focusing on the ones nearest and dearest to me. Showing more love and kindness, a whole lot more fun & laughter, and just letting things be. I am proud of the person I was in 2017, but I want a stronger, sweeter version of myself. Focusing on more date nights with my husband and enjoying time with just the two of us.
We are ringing in the new year with our only grandson Cameron. He is very special to us. He has been our only grandchild for the last 5 1/2 years. Spoiled by grandma and papa the entire time. He is the love of our life and the joy to everyday. In just a few weeks Cameron will get his very first cousin, his forever best friend, and our second grandchild. So an addition to the family in the beginning of 2018 is a Blessed way to start off a new year!
So Goodbye 2017 and Hello 2018!!!
