I'm laughing today because today I turn 26 and since my 21st birthday the weather has chosen to snow every year on or around February 1st! Today we are snuggled up at home watching buckets of snow fall from the sky. Luckily I planned ahead this year and we had dinner out last night b/c we figured we would be stuck in tonight. Thankful for a day home with my two boys. 
This year has been one for the books. Andrew wrote me the sweetest birthday note last night and one of the things he told me was that God has done more in my life this year than most years combined. I totally agree. We have had many downs this year but through those downs I have grown in my faith with God SOO much, grown more in love with my husband after 11 years together; I have leaned what it truly means to have faith and what it means to trust God in EVERYTHING. Sawyer's life has truly changed my life and his brave, dear soul has captured my heart and made me want to be the best mom I can possibly be. I have learned so much about myself this year and feel like I am finally learning who I am in my heart of hearts. I am flawed and need God and when I try and do life and trials without him I fail miserably. God has been so good to me this year and has blessed me more than I deserve. Today I feel so thankful for where we are and how far we have come this year and I wouldn't of traded this year for anything. Excited for this next year and know that God has exciting things in store for our life. 

Here are pictures of my birthday so far. Dinner last night with a few friends and then woke up to a blizzard. Sawyer LOVES the snow and has been playing in it all morning. He just came back in with Andrew and I made him his first batch of hot chocolate! So fun!

Andrew came out of the bedroom looking like this. Wow! I am one lucky girl!

Have a safe and warm day!!
