May Goals

Monday, May 1, 2017

April for us was defined by sweet celebrations and gatherings, such a wonderful month for our little family. Amidst the celebration, some serious life happened, but we're headed into May feeling encouraged and strengthened. May is wonderful and sad for me. My baby boy turns one year old. I love seeing him grow, but it hurts my heart that this season with him as my precious newborn is over. We have LOVED having an infant. I'm starting to want to venture out into all of my thoughts on the first year, but I'll save that for birthday week, when I'm a sobbing mess! It's just so funny to think about how this time last year.. my May goal was to have a baby!

April Goals
