o1 | project 12

Project 12 | a picture for each month of the year



HIGHLIGHTS
- i chose REST as my word for 2015. it is especially fitting because Thomas's job ended this month & we had no idea what the next chapter was. i made Thomas a print of Matthew 11:28 to remind Him to find rest in Jesus through the unknown & also in the new journey ahead.

- Thomas actually got a job offer just a few days after his previous job ended! it is a job that he will really enjoy & it is definitely a job from God because the timing was just so crazy. he started last week, so he was only out of work for a week and a half & this month was just a whirlwind. God has definitely blessed us through all of the fear & unknown... and now through this opportunity!

- i am steadily making my way through the Harry Potter books! i decided to re-read all of them in one sweep & i am loving all the details i've forgotten about! it's crazy how movies capture the story so well but leave out so many details! the books are way better!


NOTABLE EVENTS
January 3   - our last family get together for Christmas
January 15 - Thomas's last day of work
January 16 - Thomas's job interview
January 20 - Thomas got the job offer
January 26 - we traded in our CRV and got a new-to-us Accord (for me!)
January 29 - Thomas started his new job


THIS MONTH LAST YEAR [ON THE BLOG]
- we made a coffee table out of a window from our house!
- i chose balance as my word for the year.
- we started our passport to fun dates off with a picnic in Paris!
- i created my 30 by 30 list & have slowly been crossing things off.


what are your highlights from January?

  1. Hmm... I have to admit some things seem like a blur. But hubby was home, I was able to see my dear friend, and I was able to go back to a track that I competed in when I ran track.
