Today I am turning 24 years old. Weird. That is how I feel about it. Like really 24? HOW did that happen? ;)

I am so very blessed! I was reflecting over the past year and am just in awe of what the Lord has done and is doing.

SO many life changing things happened. One of the bigger ones was the birth of this little man:

He has changed our lives forever and I am so thankful for him. He is one of my favorite gifts :)

One of my other favorite gifts is my TWO year old (I wonder how fast time will seem to fly by till we are celebrating HIS 24th birthday!?) :)

My boys-I always wanted to have boys especially after being able to babysit for a family with three boys when I was a teenager for a few years!

Another gift is watching them together and seeing their relationship grow every day. They adore each other and that is so beautiful to me :)

Another relationship that has been growing more beautiful this year is our marriage. We reached a really tough place in March but the beauty that has come from re-surrendering our relationship to the Lord is beyond both of our imaginations!

Truly my husband is one of the best things the Lord has ever given me! I am so thankful for and in love with this man! I can hardly wait to spend the next 24 birthdays with him :)

Last night my Mom made me a special early birthday dinner which was delicious! Then my amazing sister Jen (who just got back from Texas) took our family pictures which was very special to me :) 

I am feeling so incredibly blessed and excited! Jason was telling me the other day how He really feels the Lord has some big stuff coming up in our lives (which I will let you know about soon) and we are both so thankful!

This past year has been one of the hardest to date and yet-looking forward I can hardly wait to see what is going to happen next :) 

My goal this year is to live out this verse the Lord gave me when I was in the darkest place I think I have ever been this past year:

"I will not die; instead, I will live
    and proclaim what the Lord has done."
Psalm 118:17

To PROCLAIM what God has done-He has made my family new and I am forever grateful and thankful to Him for that! :)

What about you? Has God done some amazing things in your life this year? I would love to hear about it! 

What is your favorite birthday dinner?
My mom made me hash brown casserole and an AWESOME steak and chicken salad. Deliciousness! :)
