What we've been up to...

Where did the time go????....

Twenty thirteen is one-third over. Twenty Twelve was cram packed, and much to my chagrin, none of it was blogged about. Without further ado let me present, in chronological order, a photo montage of the various happenings of the past 62 weeks. 

I walked from Houston to Dallas in the span of three weeks.

Sorry, this is the worst photo my myself I've ever seen, but imagine walking that far during March...in Texas.

I became an AUNT!! What a blessing Laila has been to our family.

I just love her!

We gave the house a facelift:

We both turned another year older {same month!}

Stephen recorded an album!!...

A concert in a local park...

I hosted and decorated a wedding shower for my brother-in-law Tim and his fiance Janese...

They got married a few weeks later. I had a lot of fun helping decorate and styling the bridesmaid's hair the morning of. So honored to have been a part of their big day!

Completed multiple custom bedding and drapery projects, such as the next two... This is such a fun job!

Then we traveled across the world....

To an island in the Indian Ocean...Sri Lanka! 

I was able to meet my husband's extended family for the first time. He hadn't been there to visit in about 10 years. {Oh, and I got to wear a Sari!!)

And other adventures took place as well!!...

We also made a stop in Dubai, UAE. Here we are at the top of Burj Khalifa, world's tallest building. Second worst photo of me (this was right after a 15 hour flight, having been awake for a day & a half!)

A few weeks later we took an impromptu ski trip to Keystone, CO. Spontaneity at it's best!

Followed by a trip to California a few weeks later to visit some friends!

We also toured Napa Valley in a Mini!!...

 Back to working on the album release....a photoshoot ensued! 

We squeezed in some date nights, as well! 

Had a MUCH needed photoshoot for our 4th Anniversary!

At last, we released Stephen's first album, Cover Me!! Click HERE to buy!

Release Party!

About a week ago, we said farewell to my Brother-in-law Tim and his wife Janese, as they flew to Sri Lanka to work as missionaries there. Click the link below to read more about the mission!

I was also able to squeeze in "girlfriend" time...

So thankful for a FULL, productive year. Amazed at God's blessing on our family, business, and church. There is so much to look forward to!!
