I am so blessed by the people in my life. My family and friends never cease to amaze me with their love and devotion to Christ. I am so excited to be starting a ladie's small group in February. I look forward to growing in my relationship with other women, family and Christ in 2013!

A weekend at the cottage with my family. This quality time together is precious! We saw the beautiful colors in the trees, we had nice cloudy weather and Riley was able to go to a pumpkin patch for the first time.

The book signing in Grand Rapids was full of joy, love, tears and genuine support of one another. Couldn't have asked for anything more! It was wonderful.

A friend of mine blessed me with the gift of this journal. Today I will start the journey of writing one blessing a day for the next 5 years. I can't wait to see God's faithfulness in black and white!!!

Been a little bit of a hermit the past few days, but still finding blessings! To soothe my sweet tooth a friend of mine got me a DELICIOUS vegan/gluten-free cupcake. :)

Lou Malnati's Pizza... the best... EVER.

This pizza was the motivation for me to be able to swallow again. Once I finally got my ability to swallow back, I celebrated with LOU'S PIZZA!! If you're in Chicago, this is a MUST experience!
