New Year's Memory Lane - Daybook Post

I love to get started on it, but about half way through I realize how busy we ended up being, and it's no wonder I feel like I'm losing my marbles at times.

  1. What a busy and fun year with just enough prayerful moments to grow by
    :) Here is to a very happy new year!

  2. I love looking back... I'll have to say that that baby of yours on her birthday steals the show! (or the year) Thanks for inspiring me all year Patty! Looking forward to sharing another year with you and your beautiful family! ~tara

  3. I'm tired just reading about your year! Great post and a lovely wrap up. Looking forward to 2015!! Many, many blessings my friend.

  4. Such a happy, healthy, strong, beautiful family! Wonderful photos, I really enjoyed seeing it all, but you have done SO much! Hope you are stil resting over the Christmas Season!

  5. What a nice recap!

    I'm so impressed by all your posts during this busy holiday season. You have given me such inspiration. :o) With a little babe in arms, I may not get around to commenting as much as I'd like, but I want you to know that I love checking in. Your "Worst Advent Ever" post was especially meaningful to me because is showed me that sometimes we just ~can't~ keep up, and that is OK. Yes, it might make us sad, but these things happen. And we can try again with our traditions next time around!

    PS--I was praying in the wee hours of the mornings for your daughter's vision problems to resolve--what better thing to do at 2am while walking a baby to sleep? :o)

  6. You were very busy in 2014! I feel like I need a nap after reading. lol. So many treasured moments with beautiful photos. The birthdays!! All of them were amazing! Thank you for sharing your year and family with us another year. I look forward to the year ahead and keeping in touch with my TX friend.

    Happy New Year!
