I’m not one to get the mail everyday, EXCEPT this time of year!! I get so excited to see all of the beautiful pictures of our family & friends!! Thank you to everyone who sent us one!! And I hope more are coming!!! We have a picture tree up on the counter & love looking at everyone!
We aren’t doing a Christmas card this year but this is the pic I would have used if we did!
2018 was a weird year.
We started out the year with a trip to Mexico and had such a great time, but came back to find Rick’s company had gone out of business and he was laid off. He’s spent the entire year looking for a job without any real leads. So that’s been a huge struggle in many ways.
I got a promotion this year and am loving my new position and the flexibility and better work/life balance it gives. My photography business has done well too. We did some camping this summer and spent a great weekend in Seattle seeing Pearl Jam. We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary too. E is growing like crazy, and turned 2. He moved up to preschool and is thriving. While it’s been tough in many ways, we are still grateful to have a warm home that we love, friends and family that we love dearly and have learned some good lessons in simplification and what’s really important.
We hope you and yours have a great holiday season!
One of my favorite girls in the whole world rescued this cutie for her birthday, and asked me to come and take pictures with her and Miss Rosie.
I held her in my arms the very first day she was born, and it’s been such an amazing feeling to see the person she’s growing to be. Vivacious, huge-hearted, gentle, and joyful... merry Christmas, @jbug605605 , I love you!
Dulaney Christmas today ❤️ We got to enjoy some great family time with a crab boil and a beautiful day with Jon’s side! On this trip to West Texas we found out claren officially refuses to sleep in her pac n play because...well...she’s a big girl and does not want to be caged in 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ should’ve thought of this before hand since she sleeps in a big girl bed at home. Oh well, lessons learned! And mom got the privilege of sharing a twin bed with this sweet cyclone of a two year old who has mastered the starfish sleep position perfectly. .
But on a serious note, it was awesome seeing family today. I am so blessed with an awesome mother in law and amazing family on Jon’s side! It’s always so great seeing everyone and it makes me wish we got together more often! Because there’s nothing much better than all cooking together, enjoying a beer and sharing some laughs with family while hugging on some precious babies. Hope you all are having a blessed Saturday!
