Our Year In Review

Having you follow along with me this year has been incredibly humbling, as well, seeing pieces of your lives as raw and beautiful as they are is equally inspiring. I hardly know the words to express my gratitude to all of you, but thank you for taking the time to visit and encouraging me to continue what I do.








2nd birthdays.


Skiing date.





Deployments.


Making the best of it.



Easter.


Blessed by good friends.

So much time spent on the water.

First time to Mt St Helens.


My parents came to town for the first time.


We got married!


A dream come true. California with my dad and family.



Finally made it to Cannon Beach.


Mastered the art of razor clam digging.


Tried authentic Puerto Rican food. Loved it.


Fell in love with photographing adventures.


Slow mornings.


Good food with great friends.





Family adventures.






I have so much gratitude for my family this year, for our friends, and for all this year has brought and meant to our little family. I've never truly reflected on our life over a year as greatly as I am now, mostly of how we've spent our time.

I don't do traditional resolutions for the new year, persay, but ways to enhance and better our lives, to live fuller and richer, with more meaning. To live with more positive thinking and slowing down.

In 2014, I want to really learn the value of connecting. To meet and connect with others like I've never known, to share in life with others who share values and ambitions, find people who believe in the details of life and to create gatherings for those we're surrounded by. Mostly, I want to remember it all. I want our corner of the world documented in the most enriching of ways. I've stepped into that the last half of this year, but to enhance that to its fullest extent in 2014, and share it all with my family in a way we all find of utmost value.

Cheers to you and yours! Happy New Year!
