  1. Haha I love this!! Here's to hanging out with you more in 2013! :)

  2. The most important thing to remember is how you've grown and changed, what you've learned, and how people have impacted your life- the little details fall away eventually :) loved reading this even though you think it's boring haha
    Love you girl and I pray God blesses you and Aaron with a house beyond your dreams this year as well as the most life changing year yet!
