Happy New Year’s Eve!


I have butterflies just thinking about what’s to come this year! 2015 is the year I get to marry the love of my life. It’s the year we’ll welcome people we love from all over the world to our favorite place in North Carolina. It’s the year we start calling the same place home, and  the year we’ll spend two weeks adventuring in Europe, in some of the very same spots where we spent our first days of friendship when I was 19. It’s the year I’ll celebrate two years at my dream job. It’s the year I’ll turn 25.

For all of the things I can see coming in 2015 though, I’m also looking forward to all of the things that I don’t know about yet. When I rang in the New Year in 2013, I had no idea that I would reconnect with my future husband 13 days later, and it taught me something–God loves to surprise and delight us. There are seasons when he takes away, yes, but he also gives abundantly. That’s why, amongst all the goals and plans I have for this special year ahead, what I want most is for my eyes and my heart to be open to all He has in store. I can’t wait to share the journey!

Happy New Year! xoxo

    Your last paragraph is almost exactly my hope for 2015, too! The word I’ve chosen for my upcoming year is “open,” and I cannot wait to see what The Lord has in store.

    It sounds like your year has been amazing, and 2015 is shaping up to be quite the amazing and celebration-filled year for y’all!!

  4. Happy New Year! You have such an exciting year to look forward to! I completely agree that when He takes He also gives somewhere else greater!
