Pray More and Worry Less

We had MANY family “christmas parties.” As Brent likes to call them 🙂 It seemed that for about two weeks we had something going on every few days. It’s hard to believe that all that has came and went already for 2016. We are so blessed to have so many people to celebrate with at Christmas (and other holidays) and I really enjoyed the time spent with all of them. I feel very refreshed about going back to work ((even though I am not extremely looking forward to it)). Ive had time to recharge my batteries, catch up on editing (for the most part!!), plan for 2017, clean out closets, and get ready to start a new year.

I don’t have photos loaded on here from every family event but here are some highlights of some time at home. I literally had 887 images from all the family get togethers and little impromptu shoots with Elias as well as capturing all the special moments of the holidays. But, I just quickly went through and picked some to share. Maybe a more detailed post will come later but I’m certainly not making any promises.

I’m honestly not big into resolutions but I feel like I should always be trying to better myself. So, as we begin this New Year I want to try to stay off social media more, be in the moment, and procrastinate less. 🙂

I’m still working on finishing that book UNINVITED. I am working on focusing less on what others are doing and more on pursuing my dreams and focusing that energy on my goals, my family, and even my students. Pray more and worry less is also something I want to try hard to work on.

Happy 2017!
