2014 (Part Two)

July

The beginning of July didn't really feel like real life. We had just gotten back from our whirlwind Europe trip and were missing it every second. When we got off the plane on June 24 we were told that it was amazing we hadn't missed our niece's birth.. little did we know she wouldn't come till July 10. So we were constantly waiting for her arrival! When she finally came, a good chunk of the family still thought a little baby boy was coming.. but I just knew! She's so precious! We also got a new dining room table, and I snagged J. Crew chino shorts on sale for $8 with my friend Courtney. Another special time was getting to have dinner with our youth pastor from high school and his family.. it had been since our wedding that we'd seen them so it was extra sweet to see how much their daughters had grown!

August

In August we celebrated Ben's 24th birthday, and shared a bunch of sweet times with friends. We took a mini vacation to Graham, Texas.. and had lots of little baby snuggles! Check out that baby foot! I die!

September

This month football kind of dominated everything. :) We got to babysit for some sweet friends, celebrated Aggie ring day, and saw our friend Seth perform in Fiddler on the Roof.

October 


In October I got to attend my sorority from college's fall philanthropy event. It was extra sweet to spend time with my Theta family, and see my little dunk her Aggie ring. We also suffered a brutal loss to Ole Miss.. but I'll get over it because of a few sweet blog friends that call The Grove home ;) I also got my shirt quilt back (and teared up!!) and we took extended family photos.

November 


November to me has come to mean Thanksgiving prep. I loved hosting in 2013, and this year we wanted to push the envelope a bit. We are lucky to have a bunch of sweet friends that feel like a true extension of family. We added them and more extended family members to our invite list for Turkey day.. and 20 people (and one infant!) were served Thanksgiving dinner in our home. That night brings my heart so much gratitude. I felt so truly loved and content. God has blessed us in abundance. We also got to take some fun photos at a Christmas tree farm with our friend Mary Clare, who recently started a photography business!

December

This last month was just plain full and happy. We of course celebrated Christmas.. but so many other things too. We are so grateful to have found a church and home group that we love. We celebrated two of our brothers graduating from college. We finished the year with a getaway to Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

I think that the thing that made 2014 different to me is that I pursued a bunch of things that made me really happy. In the past, I've always thought that chasing dreams and reaching accomplishments was for other people.. but it was just a sweet year. The Lord was near, and that made it good. 

I love reading other people's year in review posts! Comment with yours below if you did one.. and if not, I'd love to hear about the highs and lows of your year anyway! XO

  2. I absolutely LOVE your Theta tshirt quilt! I just graduated from TAMU myself, and am looking to get a quilt made ofall my Maggies shirts! Did you tackle that project by yourself or did you have someone make it?

    Thank you!
