our full life: week fifty through fifty two

Hello again, readers!

I have been SO busy. I know we all have. Please excuse the radio silence, but the past few weeks have had a lot of excitement.

First, my in-laws came into town for some visiting. It was such a fun surprise and a great time catching up. Second, Christmas and New Year’s happened. What a whirlwind! I loved it all, but WHOA. Third, I got a new job! It has been stressful preparing for an interview, filling out paperwork, and making new plans. All in all, I am SO excited!

With no further ado, here is the past three weeks in pictures…enjoy:

apples to applesAfternoon snacking.

hb susanHappy Birthday to my dear friend, Susan!

sleepover goodnessGirls’ sleepover in Newport Beach. Resort living never gets old.

I loved these last three weeks, but I am loving getting back to normal life, too. Getting up at a normal time, heading to work, drinking a green smoothie…this all sounds so good to me. I will be biting my tongue in a few weeks, but for now I am looking forward to the structure.

And speaking of structure, I will be structuring this “Our Full Life” series a little different in 2015. With a new full-time job and more responsibilities to take on, I will not have as much time on my hands as I previously did. I will now be doing a MONTHLY “Our Full Life” post rather than weekly post. So, at the end of this month I will post for the month of January and so on throughout the year. I hope to keep sharing just as much life with you all and keep just as creative too. I hope you enjoy the change!

If I don’t say it enough, THANK YOU for reading and staying connected. I love sharing and I am so blessed that anyone would read my words.
