I've spent this month looking back at the last 10 years...
Living and teaching in Argentina for a year
Coming home and falling in love with a man who quickly became my best friend
Student teaching in Bolivia
Graduating from college
Marrying my best friend
Greeting our firstborn
Watching Teacher Man graduate
And figuring out life with a child
Right before we discovered that we'd be figuring out life with childREN
And then falling even more in love with these guys who shower me with a crazy amount of grace
Before welcoming their sister into the world
And watching my boys become the BIG brothers
To a very adventurous little girl
Not to mention 7 moves, 5 jobs, and 3 mortgages.
All that said, I'm ready to call it a decade. As I look at these pictures, I remember hundreds of life lessons learned and relearned; dozens of faces of mentors, role models, and teachers who invested their time in my soul; and too many precious and irreplaceable people to count. I could not be more grateful for the way my Savior has led me and the people I have had the privilege of walking (and sometimes running) alongside in this journey. It's been a privilege and an honor. So goodbye 20's! Thanks for the great ride! We'll see what the 30's hold.... starting.... NOW!
