Thanks 2013

As we say goodbye to another year I wanted to reflect on the positives some important moments of our lives. Some are super happy, some were life lessons, while others were bittersweet.

In no particular order...

The sale of our house... this was a life lesson, OMG we never thought it was going to sale, it was also bittersweet due to the fact we brought our babies home to that house when they were born. We will always consider Aggieland the home of our hearts. We will go back one day xoxo

Getting our finances in order... this I believe is a challenge for the vast majority of people in the world. With waiting for the house to sell, renters not treating the house like they should, and all the ups/downs and unexpected issues for the year we were able to get things in order : )

Health is a blessing and we are truly grateful that we are overall healthy and have been blessed with two healthy, active, growing girls.

Spending quality time with the Chesser side of the family for Thanksgiving. We have not seen them for a family gathering of this size since 2003. They have always been very supportive and loving of us and it was a great experience for our girls to get to run around and play with that side of the family.

Getting to be a part of several friends' lives as they became parents for the first time. We are grateful that they thought of us and included us in that special time in their lives.

The freedoms that we have and are able to enjoy by being Americans living in America. We are grateful to all the men and women who sacrifice and serve this country past, present, and future.

Through the power of technology we have been able to follow the lives of some super special people and follow their journey in life. Through the journey of these individuals we were able to become more aware of issues, become more compassionate, and be an advocate by spreading awareness. Some of these super special peoples' stories ended bittersweet but will always have touched our lives and hearts.

We are of course always thankful for our families' love and support of us through our own journey in this crazy world we strive to make an impact in.
