What a year!

I've spent the past week thinking about all of the things that have happened over the past year.

It's been a year since we moved out of our old house and came back to my hometown.
It's been (almost) a year since we became a family of four and Big Daddy and I became parents of two little girls.
It's been a year since we started looking for a Church to raise our little family in.
Yesterday marked a year since we wrote the offer on our new house and it's been almost a year since we closed on our old house.
It has been a crazy, stressful and wonderful year.

The people in our lives didn't have to go through the past year the way that we did, so it has been easy for them to pass judgment on how we've felt. We love our house and it feels like home, but this town doesn't. I think we will always think of Sanford as being our hometown because it is where Big Daddy and I started our real life together.
I feel like we have spent a lot of the past year just trying to make it.

Now, I almost feel like I can say that we've survived one of the most trying times in our marriage and in our life together.

Y'all definitely went through a lot of changes during that little stretch. Such big changes are difficult on everybody but y'all have made it through the most difficult probably. I hope your new/old town grows on you as the years pass.

Amazing what can happen in just one year. And so many good things to look forward to, to come!
