Happy (late) New Year!

Well, I fell off the blogging wagon for a little bit there. But don't worry, I've got plenty of excuses. 

Let's just say that December was a bit crazy around here. We had a ton of Christmas parties to plan and participate in. We were leaving half way through the month to head back to good ole' West Viriginia. In every ounce of free time we had, we were working to finish all the Christmas presents that Adam had been laboring over since October - he made some beautiful wooden chests for our families, seriously he's pretty talented! Thankfully all I had to do was sand and stain them. We had to pack and ready our home for our two week absence. Once in WV, we spent all our time either with our families or traveling between them. Then it was time to return to South Dakota so that Adam could preach on Sunday, where we were greeted home by a sick puppy. We have since been trying to nurse him back to health. Like my list of excuses? Yeah, they are pretty good. 

Moving on, we had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! It was great to have two whole weeks to spend with our families. We celebrated and partied, ate a ton of food, visited all our favorite places, got to see all our favorite people, and soaked up all the love we could. Again, I was so busy cherishing every moment of it that I managed to take zero photos. Maybe that should be a goal for this year - to photo document 2015 a bit better. Along with all that busy-ness, I haven't put much thought into any "New Years Resolutions." Maybe I'll just keep going month by month. That challenge seems a little less daunting. 

Well, Happy New Year everybody! 2014 was a pretty great year for us. We had quite a few unexpected blessings and made some life-changing decisions, all of which have been marvelous. Looking back over the last year and seeing all that God had done, I am super stoked to see and experience everything coming in 2015. 

What are you looking forward to this year?
