2016 In Review

It’s hard to believe it’s already the last day of 2016! Seems like just yesterday I was celebrating the start of 2016! This year has had some incredible highs and some painful lows, but more than anything, this year has brought me closer to myself, my family, and to God. 

2016 started off with a bang! For Christmas last year, Colin purchased my domain ( and really pushed me to chase after my blogging dream. I suffered from some health issues in February, and decided to leave my job in May. 

A few weeks after I informed my boss I would be leaving at the end of the school year, Colin popped the question and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him! I was of course elated, and can’t wait to marry my best friend. 

In June, Colin, Bubba, and I decided to take the plunge and move to Texas! Without jobs, we didn’t know what was in store for us, and luckily, we somehow landed in the community of Lakeway, TX. Just west of Austin, it is the perfect location for us. Close to downtown, but far enough away that it’s a small community. Someone at Colin’s work introduced us to Lake Hills Church, and this fall, I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior. 

Since then, Colin and I have grown in our faith. We have both been blessed with amazing jobs (me teaching high school, and Colin working for our church!), good health, and a wealth of happiness. 

As 2016 comes to an end, I can’t help but think of how truly blessed we are with two amazing families, an abundance of friends, and the fortune to travel and see the world. I hope 2017 will bring us just as much good health and happiness as 2017 has. Cheers!
