Christmas .... & a possible move?

My Christmas was amazing this year. We had such a fun time with our families and enjoyed the time off of both jobs. I am so incredibly blessed to have the jobs that I have, but I can get pretty exhausting working such long hours. Christmas gave me such amazing rest & quiet time to spend doing the things that matter most. My Mr, however, was a bit M.I.A for things once we got closer to the 25th.....

Here he is setting up our tree. He always does such an amazing job and spends so much time doing my silly traditions with me. I'm so blessed to have him as my friend.

Shortly after we set up the house, his brother called to tell us he was engaged! Not only engaged, but getting hitched on the 16th. Needless to say we took a very LONG trip to Austin, Tx in the car with Joey's family & wouldn't have traded it for the world! I took their photos (you can see there here) and we had an absolute blast. I only wish we could have stayed longer.

We squeezed in all 100 of our "traditional" Christmas movies & even managed to pull a Turkey out of the oven for our family Christmas dinner. It was tough squeezing it all in this year for some reason, but we survived. I definitely know to plan better next year.

After the holidays, we headed to Seaside to celebrate New Year's Eve. We were so excited to finally head back to the beach. We truly love every minute of being there and while we thought it would be chilly, the 77 degree weather didnt hurt our love for the place at all! Just gorgeous!

I have been so hard at work on the new website, I haven't had much time for anything else. I am SO happy to say that it is FINALLY live. There are a few kinks to work out, but for the most part I'm pretty happy with it. Here is a screen shot from my work computer.
Oh, one little tiny thing I left out. MY HUSBAND BOUGHT ME A CAR FOR CHRISTMAS. I've had a hard past 8 months, so you dont mind if I brag a little do you? He really blesses me beyond belief and I can't imagine what I did to deserve his selflesness. HE neede a new car, not me. He sold his to get something a little larger for the family days we hope to have in the future, & bought me something instead. I dont deserve him. Not one ounce. This is why he was so scatterbrained and late to everything when Christmas got close. He was hiding a car! haha. Love that guy.

I keep a blog for my business here & have been struggling to keep that one AND this one active. I used to keep the two seperate, but now I am sharing a little of my life to my clients on the blog. I share much much more with you all, and I love doing it, but I am thinking of keeping it all over there to allow myself more time living and less time blogging. Thoughts? I hate to move it, but then again maybe I could be a bit more transparent for clients & keep my relationship with you all also. Something to think about I suppose.

I hope your Christmas and New Years were wonderful. We are so thankful for a Savior who was born to die a death we deserve. We serve a mighty God Xx
