goodbye two thousand thirteen.

 i love the fresh, clean start of a new year.  2013 was a year of extreme highs and lows.  we went through a great deal of heartache with the loss of isaac's grandma von in april and my dear cousin brian in june.  it is 7 months today that he has been gone and i still have a hard time believing that it's real.  i have grown so much stronger through his death and i feel his influence and love in my life daily.

we have also felt so much joy and happiness with the birth of our niece soeyer, buying our first home, finding out we were expecting a baby boy, and welcoming home my brother from his 2 year mission for our church in brazil.  

we were extremely lucky to travel a bunch this year!  we went to st. george & las vegas a few times, had the most amazing 2 week adventure to the sasquatch music festival in washington, a road trip to teton valley to spend the weekend with our dear friends the moulton's, multiple trips to our cabin, and i got to tag along on my first business trip with isaac to nashville, tennessee.  isaac also go to travel to san francisco and dallas, texas on business.  it was a busy year!

i am so excited for 2014.  big things coming our way!

I think it is safe to say you had quite the year... Also, the real life pic makes the birthday painting that much more amazing.
