A Year in Review // 2015

If you're following along with the 2016 Scripture Memory / Dwell Richly printable, here's the verse for week 2: 

"But as for me, I will look to the Lord and confident in Him I will keep watch; I will wait with hope and expectancy for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me." Micah 7:7 (AMP)

So I'm a few days late here but I've been inspired to share a few highlights from our year, thanks to all of the other fabulous bloggers out there (plus JD always kindly encourages it - haha)! 

The year 2015 has been filled with growth. Growth in family, growth in creativity, growth in marriage, growth in experiences while traveling, growth in Christ. Between friends, new endeavors, babies and about six months of Aloha / Hawaii, how could we even ask for more?
