New Year's Resolutions

So I've been very very bad about updating my New Year's resolutions, unlike S. However, one  resolution I've noticed that I've been doing awesome at is that I've actually been taking pictures of the happy moments, not just moments for my blog. The other day I was thinking, boy we haven't experienced many fun events lately! Then I looked at my camera and I had six different events all piled on top of each other in my camera, and each one of them was an equally happy splendid moment. There wasn't a single picture of a bad moment on there, even one that may've looked happy in a picture had I went ahead and took a picture. I am so grateful. And just because I've talked about it so much and don't want to be TOO much of a tease, here are (more than) a few:

Allie and I in Dallas

Fishing with the Boys

Baby Birds in our breezeway

Shawn watering his garden

Wrapping presents for friends

At said friends birthday party

BBQing at the Pool

Can't forget the s'mores!

Wow! This is probably one of my most favorite posts you've ever done, it made me feel really happy and smiley, and I've seriously had a bummer kind of day... so the post WORKED! :) I love that you've documented these beautiful moments, they will bring so many smiles to your face one day (they probably already do). You have such a fabulous perspective and insight into your life, I envy it sometimes. Love you sweetie!
