Muahhh, 2017. I am kissing you the sweetest goodbye.
Wow. What an eventful year.
This year has been filled with some of the most amazing, memorable, and delightful experiences. However, this year has also contained some of the biggest leaps of faith.
Hunter and found out we were pregnant Friday, January 13, 2017. (YES I AM AWARE, FRIDAY THE 13TH) *the scariest day of my life*
I devoted my life to Christ sometime in late January early February. *GREATEST DECISION I EVER MADE*
Hunter and I also got married on Saturday, March 18, 2017. Which was the best day of my life. *Gosh I love that man*
Then on August 30, 2017 at 4:18pm we laid eyes on our sweet little man for the very first time. *I still remember this like it was yesterday* *Gosh I love that little boy*
Needless to say 2017 has been the biggest, boldest, and scariest year of my life. While I can’t speak for Hunter, I imagine many of our feelings are similar. But nonetheless, we are very different in the way we handle things. haha.
This year has been a year of learning, loving, laughing, and a whole lot of crying. But in more ways than one, this year, has been my year.
It was in this year, I married the man of my dreams. -SOMETIMES MY WILDEST DREAMS- haha. It was in this year that God blessed me with the most valuable, and important job ever, being a mommy (and obviously a wife). It was in this year that I accepted Christ into my heart. It was in this year that I experienced a heavy load of personal growth. I am thankful for 2017.
I remember being 13 days into 2017 and wishing the year would already end. However, as it comes to a close I am so in love with everything that has happened. Regardless of it being deemed “good” or “bad.”
Here is why.
Even in the darkest, hardest, most horrific moments there is bound to be one slight glimmer of hope, and goodness. Sometimes it is by choice that we choose the good instead of the bad. That being said, this was the case for me during much of 2017. I had to choose to see the glimmer of hope, and keep moving forward. Little did I know that my hardest and darkest moments would become the most bright and beautiful ones.
It is all a matter of perspective I suppose.
However, either way. There is a NEW YEAR coming, and who knows what it will bring. But I want to put a happy, healthy closing on the year 2017.
Wishing you all the greatest entrance to a NEW YEAR! XOXO
