2017, what a whirlwind of a year you were!!
I shot 21 weddings, we took 16 trips out of town, Buck made three overseas work trips, we tackled two major yard projects, I launched a new website with updated branding, London turned one, I hired a business coach, I read close to two dozen books, we maintained a strong marriage (by God’s grace), remained faithful in parenting (by God’s grace), invested in friendships, repiped our basement, hired a contractor and are about to start renovations, London made friends, I read the Harry Potter series for the first time, we received diagnosis and started treatment for health issues, Buck regularly biked into the city for work, bought an iMac (FINALLY), started a newsletter, donated a boatload of clothes, started listening to Dave Ramsey’s podcast and took more ownership over our finances, paid off our car, I set boundaries and stuck to them better than any year in the past, I rented an office space, I photographed several wedding editorials, I began photographing interiors, and took a month off of Instagram.
It was a full year— our hearts are full, our brains are hungry, and our bodies are tired, and we cannot WAIT to see what 2018 has in store for us. As for today, we’re just taking the time to be thankful for the past year and all of the grace we received and memories we made.
