Wow.. what a year!
We made it through a wild ride, y’all! The start of this new decade was rocky for a lot of people but, WE MADE IT!
When rock bottom hits, you can truly only go up from there. So if 2020 was rough for you, 2021 has to be better!!
I always do a yearly recap at the end of each year! When I think about 2020, I try to only see the positives. I see more time spent with family, a chance to slow down, a chance to remember what is really important in life. The biggest blessing of all this year has been the blessing of pregnancy. That will truly never be lost on me. We also added a sweet puppy to our family this year, Nash! Now, Ace has a puppy sibling! AND, I have a new brother in law!! So many blessings!
Onto the Recap!
