Sorry it has been a while since posting. Honestly, there hasn't been a lot to post. Back in December a friend of mine told me about a "month of no." In other words, other than family time, church, and school you say no to doing anything else. Even though we didn't intentionally follow this plan, we sort of naturally fell into the groove of just saying no. Last year was one of the toughest, busiest years of our lives. I think deep down we just needed a break....to focus on living better...loving better. I can honestly say that this month hasn't been filled with a lot of activity, but it has been filled with plenty of laughter, silliness, hugs, and lots of love. I am very thankful for my family. At times the road wasn't always easy, but it has taught me to fight harder, to love deeper, and be grateful in ways I had never even come close to before! To say the least....it's been a joyful beginning to 2012!
