A friend recently asked me what the best and worst moments of 2013 were, and as I thought back it was truly hard to believe the incredible amount of change that has occurred in the past 365 days.
Here's a really brief summary of my year:
8... months of accutane
5... years of marriage
countries visited (US, Canada, Haiti, Slovenia, Croatia. My first real mission trip and my first trip to Europe in the same year! I never would've seen that coming.)
4... distinct seasons of life conveniently marked by the seasons of the year (a dark winter, a testing spring, a leap of faith and lessons in rest and trust this summer, and relief and abundance this fall)
3... number of new jobs I've had in the past year
3... number of oceans I visited! (Pacific, Atlantic, and Adriatic Sea. Amazing.)
2... Gospel Communities
2... times we drove to DFW, effectively doubling the number of times we've visited since moving 4 years ago. Miss that place!
1... blog redesign. Click over to check it out! (Credit to Jessi from Naptime Diaries for working so patiently with me.)
1... graduate school class. Yikes. (Halfway done, but in a holding pattern right now.)
1.... precious baby on its way!
Here's another summary via my Instagram pictures! To avoid confusion, keep in mind the video starts with this December and moves backward, ending last January. Whew! What a year.
