2017 was one of the most challenging and stretching years I have ever experienced.
We finalized Gus’ adoption and he became a Noel forever.
We celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary.
We took our first trip to Disney as a family of 4.
We lost Bryan’s beloved Babcia.
I started a blog.
We saw my beloved Avett Brothers at the Fox.
Our boys turned 6 and 1.
We fought the school system for our biggest boy with everything we had.
We bought our dream house.
Both boys had surgeries and tests and doctors visits and therapies galore.
I had some amazing times and a few hard ones with my job.
Bryan took a new job.
Friendships deepened, and new ones were formed.
I stepped outside of my comfort zone more times than I can count.
And in all this...God has shown his goodness and faithfulness.
I am so excited to see what 2018 brings. I know it will bring joy and it will bring pain. It will bring celebrations and heartaches. But He will still be good.
Thank you for traveling this little blog journey with me- this is one of the ways I have been grown and stretched so much. I love this space and the creative outlet (and oftentimes therapy) it has been for me.
