Can y’all believe this is the LAST day of 2019, then it’s going to be a NEW decade!!
In one way, it feels like 2019 just started and in another way, it feels like so much has happened this year!

So without further ado, our 2019…

At the end of May, we lost my precious MeMe. There are no words to describe how it feels to grieve her loss. We were really close, really, really, close. MeMe celebrated her first birthday in heaven a few days ago. We are clinging to the fact that she is completely healed and she’s with Jesus.

And that was our year!! It was filled with a lot fun, exciting moments. This year brought travel and a sweet baby niece for us! It was also filled with sadness and loss. Harry and I both lost our grandmothers this year and that was hard. We had to really rely on our faith during those difficult times and trust in God’s plan, which we 100% do!
We are excited for a NEW YEAR!! Thank you for following along on this online journey of mine during, 2019! I try to keep this a bright/ light spot on the internet! 🙂
I’ll see you all in 2020!!
