I love looking back at the old before making way for the new…a yearly tradition I always make sure to do on here, just so I can see what that events comprised that specific time in my life. Considering I am two years behind on making family photo albums, I’d say this is a win 🙂 Here we go, a picture rewind of 2013:

It’s big another crazy, jam packed year for our family, and 2013 flew by like a whirlwind…we welcomed a precious new gift from God, packed up our first home and then moved into a new one, and savored each and every moment together that we could. 2014 is shaping up to be another big one for the four of us, and I hope you’ll continue to read along and savor the sweet moments, too! Many well wishes friends…and thanks for letting me share a bit of this year’s past with you!!
