2015 Review!

I love the first few weeks of a new year, you get the chance to look back on the last 365 days and fondly remember days gone by. Or you get the learn and grow from the not so pleasant trials you might have faced. It is a time to set goals and rededicate yourself to the future. 2015's review is sure to be filled with hard work, as I started going back to school, fun summer days spent at the pool, and lots of time with our family. It hasn't been a perfect year, but it has been a great one! Thanks 2015, you were good to us! January:

I went back to school and started this crazy journey! Ryker turned 2, and got a little wild! Bells turned 6 months old! Fox started school again, and loved it.

Ryker turns two!

February:

We sold our first home in San Marcos, just in time too, because a few months later it got flooded during the historic Memorial Day flood. We also enjoyed roasting marshmallows at my parents house on Valentines day, with our kiddos. Bell is 6 months old :(

 

Sold our house!

March:

March was just a month of normal life, except for the day my brother let his then girl friend wax him on my coffee room table... I was also in school gearing up for spring break and finals.

April:

Brought beautiful spring weather, stunning Bluebonnets, and got to spend time with my dear friend, B and her girls K^2.

May:

FINALS and a print show. We also celebrated my dad's birthday with a group viewing of Pitch Perfect 2 and a chocolate cake! We also started summer break and got to swim a bit! I also taught my younger brother how to drive, and didn't die. We also helped with relief efforts for the memorial day flood victims.

That cake is on fire!

June:

The month of June was full of swimming, trips to our new BassPro, and more family time. I also was able to photograph our Chruch's pioneer trek. It was an incredible experience filled with blisters, rain, heat, and a totally Spiritual experience.

July:

Fox turns 4!! Independence day! I also Co-hosted my dear friends baby shower, where all my un biological family got to get together for a fun girls day/night. My sweet husband and I also got to enjoy a staycation for a night in Downtown ATX. Full of fun shopping, eating, and touristy things, who knew our own backyard could be so exotic. I also got to travel to Oklahoma to spend time with one of my best friends and her beautiful family. Our July wrap up was a weekend with the Stephens in Dallas!

Because I really do love him so much.
