Last year I summed up “Two Oh Eleven” as a year that had minimal changes in our family of 2 but many changes for others and I am thinking the same for 2012.
We started the year off in Colorado, snow boarding and site seeing. See Ice Castles post.
While we were gone, our Bible study started to read through the Bible from cover to cover. In 90 days. It was an incredible experience. Read my recap.
Photographed my first engagement session, and I love love love how they all came out!
Rooftop celebrated their first 1st place award—in ribs! The second competition in a year full of Babies, Brides, and Barbeque! Then a few weeks later we launched the BBQ sauce full throttle in Las Vegas with a three day convention sales booth.
Hello Owen, nice to meet you! Who knew how chunky this little guy could become and steal our hearts with his gummy smile.
Hello Grayson! A baby that we all waited so long for, praying alongside his mama, grateful for him every single day and those sweet big brown eyes!
Had my first paying photography client! Thank you Kirsten!
Discovered a new love for country line dancing while celebrating the best friend’s 26th birthday.
Rediscovered a love for the beach while celebrating two special June birthdays, one 24 year old and one 4 year old. 🙂
Kept the bridal celebrations going with a weekend away in the Sequoias, being pampered by our mamas every moment along the way.
Spent the first week of August under the sweet South Dakota skies.
After going opening weekend, Rachel and I went back to visit California Adventure with the hope of a lighter crowds. And of course another photo with Walt and the Mouse.
Amid all the wedding festivities, we managed to take the time to watch the footage from our wedding.
Ugly happy tears were shed.
Stood by my friend as she pledged her love to her best friend—under the trees and surrounded by sunflowers.
Took a week, traveling to the Pacific Northwest—basking under the red fall leaves and chilly Seattle winds.
Watched as my childhood best friend married the man of her dreams at her fairy tale wedding.
Photographed a proposal in Orange Circle, smiling knowing my best friend was about to embark on a wonderful new adventure.
And now here we are, half way through January… here’s to a wonderful New Year!
