“Praise God through whom all Blessings Flow!”

    It’s hard to believe that it has already been a year since 2010's wrap-up, where I mentioned my hesitation & distrust with odd numbered years. I know that’s weird, but I really always thought even numbered years were better. Well, I take that back. 2011 redeemed odd numbers everywhere for me.

Check it out!

The summer took us to Ohio {where we laughed at my little brother, hung out on the hammock, played bar, got ice cream at Jeni’s and visited the little shop where Marcus bought my engagement ring}, brought my brother home from his deployment & said goodbye to Marcus’ youth ministry job

We were overwhelmingly blessed in 2011. We pray that we can be a source of blessing to those around us in 2012. While we did make some simple New Year’s Resolutions, the more important invitation is to grow closer to God with every coming year. More scripture, more sacraments, more quiet time, more charity, more love. We both chose words/virtues to focus on in the 2012 as well. Marcus is praying for Fortitude & I am praying for the grace & discipline to be selfless. Feel free to hold us accountable ;) Happy New Year Y'all!!!!

Beautiful pictures as always! I have our emails saved in my 2011 Project Life regarding Facebook. I deactivate and activate; still struggling; but one day {its getting closer} it will be permanently deleted! I will pray for fortitude, discipline and grace to be selfless for the two of you! My One Little Word for 2012 is Simplicity! Take good care and feel free to keep me accountable as well.
