Happy Halloween Everyone !!
so of course it’s that time,
a time when you remember things past and look forward to things ahead. As 2010 is rapidly disappearing in the rearview mirror i naturally begin to wonder what this bright new year will hold.
2010 was good to us, finally settled in our own little corner of the world (kelowna, BC) we began to dream once again. this past year took us to many places. some of those places we once called home, but many of them new and unfamiliar to us. This was a year of adventure, challenge, growth, family & friends, and much Love.
we can’t wait to see where this ship will sail in 2011, my husband wrote something once to me while we were dating and i feel that it is very key for this next year, it went a little something like this…..
“faith is the ship of doing.
it is never docked but is fueled by hopes of distant lands;
the Holy Spirit fills it’s sails and the word of God is the very wood it is made of.
you are it’s crew and when the crew stay on board it is not easily sunk.
Jesus is it’s Captain and the hurting world it’s destination, a redeemed world it’s goal.
faith is the ship of doing and it’s your choice to sail with it or not.”
a few pictures below only begin to capture this past year for us, enjoy and much love in this new year.
so going to bed last night i had pre-determined in my heart that i was going to accomplish something in my house the next day that would leave me patting myself on the back saying “well done amanda”. as i woke this morning and set my feet on the sexy chocolate brown shag carpet in our bedroom i decided the task for the day was going to be the ‘monster’ storage room!!
aren’t storage rooms wonderful? i am very thankful to have that space to keep things that either aren’t used on a regular basis or would just be in the way otherwise. the only fault of the storage room is that it has a tendency to call upon all it’s friends to come along and they all tend to gather in one giant MESS!
so today dear readers, i take on the storage room.
let’s see where my perseverance level’s currently at shall we?
wish me luck!
well the rumors that were so viciously told previous to marriage about your waistline disappearing and clothing getting a bit tighter….are sad to say….TRUE!
how did we come to face this fact? well, stephen and i are in the middle of packing up and moving once again and this meant going through our closet. we both came across a pair of pants that we are now refering to as our “dream pants”, it’s pretty staright forward as to why we are calling them that, but it’s our dream to fit into these pairs of pants again for our trip to San Francisco! this means we have some work to do…just another challenge we get to overcome together. ha ha!
we have come to realize it’s one of those things in life you just need to have a chuckle at, enjoy, and DO something about otherwise it’s a little upsetting ; ) needless to say we’re chosing the “bright side” of things!
