the year of everett...

2010 has been a pretty awesome, incredible, life changing year for us. It's funny to reflect on the year and all the ways that life is different after just 365 days. This time last year I looked like this:

large bellied, swollen ankles, and unsure of what the year would hold. Today, I can say with certainty that this was the best year of my 27 so far. It hasn't been without growing pains, learning, tears of joy and frustration; however, it has been the best. It's hard to put into words the amount of joy that Everett has brought to our family.We have learned what it means to really sacrifice for someone else, to find joy in simple everyday things, and to just truly be grateful for the Lord's blessings and provisions. Here's to hoping that 2011 will be even half as awesome.
