12 Pictures of 2011

Happy Thursday! I am super excited that the week is wrapping up and so is this year! 2011 has been a great year of growth and love for my little family. I’m so thankful for everything that God brought to us this year and look forward to what 2012 has to offer! In honor of the new year being just 3 days away, I’ve decided to pick just 1 picture from each month this year to sum up 2011! Enjoy 🙂

Just saying…it’s super hard just to pick one picture from each month! I realized that I easily took THOUSANDS of pictures this year. I’m kind of proud of that. What an amazing year it has been and I’m so glad to have it all documented! Here’s to an amazing 2011 and an even more exciting 2012 to come!

Until next time…
With love and God bless,
