Christmas Recap

Yep, it’s been a while!  I guess you can say we’ve been busy, right?  Once my mom’s birthday hit (and we enjoyed a fabulous brunch with the rest of the family – tradition), it was fast forward to Christmas!

We opened gifts, we enjoyed yet another amazing breakfast, visited with friends & then met up with my brother & his beautiful family to cap off the day!  Here is my niece Mary & Park sporting matching handmade scarves from my grandmother!  These two have such a special relationship!

Phew.

Thing is….even after Christmas….life just continues to get BETTER!  We are so thankful for all of the blessings God has provided our family with over the last couple of months.  Many long-time prayers have been answered & we are so very optimistic about 2017!!

Stay tuned for so much more on this blog in the new year!

xoxo – Jamie
