memories & reflections...

I don't know if I have ever done a yearly recap... but as I was {finally} taking some {of the 6,973} photos off of my phone, there were some moments that made me smile, snapshots of love that reminded me that there were sweet days mixed in with the sick last year.  I couldn't help but pick and choose some to share...

January... 
evenings at the beach, working hard to get her to smile at me, and a driver's license for my youngest.
all very big deals.  
February...
a month of love... 
candy and really great, beautiful chocolate, and a birthday celebration that was really fun to pull off 


March...
a full day of pi {and pie} with camden, the county fair- which was ann's favorite, and a trip back to the cheesecake factory in honor of ann's birthday {and they took "our" favorite off the menu!}



April...getting our girl ready to fly, reflecting on a tragedy,
and finally sharing {and loving} the balloon festival with my mom! {i need to check the 2014 dates!}
May...
a fiesta farewell, moving her in, and cam getting his big chance at his bass drum dream

June...
the best salad i have ever eaten, celebrating a sister at the beach, and a 50th anniversary at disney!

July...
taking camden to the nyg in san antonio, celebrating my husband, enjoying the sunset

August...
setting the table for tea, wondering how 21 years have flown by...
and how cam could possibly be beginning his junior year!

September...
homecoming carts instead of floats, celebrating the arrival of macie kate!
and cam's celebration of the arrival of ghost peeps.

October...
marching season {again!}, the buddy walk with suz & for them, halloween

November...
meeting macie kate {i have so much to share!}, packing shoeboxes,
and having our girl home for thanksgiving!

December...
a birthday, advent on the street corner, and gifts given in love.
