2012 ... so far.

2012 is in full swing and my little blog is way behind. what can i say, i was so wrapped up in participating in the new year that i didn't make time to blog about anything. oh well. i hope each of you have had a beautiful start to the new year!!

as for the boatmans, we are doing our best to take it one day at a time and soak it ALL in. as 2011 came to a close, we took a step back and reflected on the events of the year. it was truly a roller coaster year for us. the highs were wonderfully high and the lows were tragically low. i can say without hesitation that we were blessed beyond measure in so many areas of our life. as painful as the periods of loss and disappointment were, they served us well. we kept our hearts open, our minds clear and let each one helped us to grow as individuals and as a couple. they forced us take stock of the things we thought were important and reevaluate many of our priorities. i am grateful for the good times, but i am profoundly thankful for the difficult times. our hope is to take the lessons that 2011 taught into this new year and beyond. 

2012 has been busy already, but we are looking forward to the adventures that lie ahead!! 

{we rang in the new year and celebrated scott's birthday in las vegas}

 {our pups still rule the roost over here and piper has settled in nicely}

{our littlest peep charlie is getting so big & we just love her to bits!}

{we are always busy sewing, sanding, stripping, building or painting something}

{more alterations to our humble home - carpet, paint, organization}

{picking out paint colors is a regular occurrence. i've putting my knitting/crocheting skills to work on a baby blanket for some dear friends -- HUGE Florida fans.}

{lots of regular work & fitting in time for some gym work}

{this winter/spring/winter back & forth is pure madness, but sometimes we get to build a great fire to snuggle up next to ... so i'm not complaining too much}

{i gave our blog a little facelift for the new year}
