A Time to reflect.......

Im noticing a lot of posts and blogs like this. Many had struggles and pain. Many had the best year ever. Me it was ok. Not wonderful not horrible. We made some pretty big changes.

The beginning of the year we were in Corona, Nick was working for his dad, Anberlyn was a year old.
February a friend and I started a Christian mommy group, in hopes to bring mommies strong friends of like mindedness. I have made wonderful friends through that group. Though now the group is slowly falling apart and will not last through another year I am so happy to have met these women. (there is no drama or anything in the group, people just have busy lives and cant make it to events, and its getting expensive and there are dues. We plan on continueing the group via facebook) I also turned 25 this month of February.

March and April the friend mentioned above and I started our own business! That was super exciting making little girls pretty, what a joy. Rock A Bow genius name.
Nick has been in search of a new job, the search has been long and hard on him. He had a second interview and was to start in May. We decide to put in our 30 day notice to move, the drive wasnt that bad for Nick but not necessary we moved 20 minutes down the road to Yorba Linda (which 91 e time is like an hour down the road.) We LOVE the condo we are living in! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

May is when we moved.

June Nick and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary! Time flies! I married an Amazing Man and really couldnt ask for better! He accepts me for ALL my short comings, as do I him. He is an amazing provider and works hard so that I may stay home to raise our children.
July Im pregnant. I got pregnant on the 4th of July, there were fireworks!! haha corny I know! I knew three days after that, that I was pregnant! My breasts were so tender and sore and I just knew. We waited a few weeks to tell anyone as to not take away from my little brother as he was leaving for basic training. We did however tell him. My morning sickness started this month as well! UGH! Awful Awful times!



October feeling better, still getting sick but not as often, I am able to go through my days for the most part.

November, a month of thanksgiving, and we had much to be thankful for!

December- was hard Nicks work messed up his paycheck. Bills went through that werent expected. We had to borrow money, which was very difficult on hubby, but we made it through! I think...... We also welcomed a new family member into the world!!! Miss Juliet Joy was born on December 23rd! Im so happy for my sister and brother in law!

As the year comes to an end, a word that keeps coming to mind is forgiveness. People often say it, but dont mean it.


–verb (used with object)
1. to grant pardon for or remission of (an offense, debt, etc.); absolve.
2. to give up all claim on account of; remit (a debt, obligation, etc.).
3. to grant pardon to (a person).
4. to cease to feel resentment against: to forgive one's enemies.
5. to cancel an indebtedness or liability of: to forgive the interest owed on a loan.
–verb (used without object)
6. to pardon an offense or an offender.

All through the Bible ( which I believe ) It also talks about it.

I believe if one genuinely asks for forgiveness, and I forgive them, thats it. No more bringing it up. My heavenly Father does it for me, why not take from that example?

That I think will be what I work on this coming year, forgiveness, among other things.

In three months time

Emersyn Abigale you are growing so quickly, time is flying by. I love feeling your every move and love watching you move across my belly, so alien like and creepy! I love knowing your inside of me, that I am protecting you from harm, that I am all you have. Your daddy loves and adores you, he laughs everytime he sees that alien like move. Your sister, Anberlyn, doesnt understand yet that in three months time you are gonna change her world. She hugs & kisses my belly every night and tells you nigh night. When I ask her where her sister is she lifts up her own shirt and points to her belly, your daddy and I laugh and tell her no not there so she points at daddies belly, nope not there we tell her, when she finally comes over laughing and points at mommies tummy! She will soon know, once your here in mommy and daddies arms.
Im so excited for you to finally be here, at the same time scared of whats to come. Scared of change, not knowing what to expect from you. Its a new chapter in our lives. Im excited to meet you Emersyn, In three months time!
