o9 | project 12

Project 12 | a picture for each month of the year



HIGHLIGHTS
- one of my best friends is officially a married gal! her wedding was labor day weekend & it was a weekend full of labor for sure! as the matron of honor, i helped her out with a few things the week of & night before the wedding so i was so exhausted by the time sunday came! however, it was totally worth it & i was so honored to be the matron of honor! :)

- ever since i've been working downtown, i've discovered how awesome ducks are! i hang out with the ones who live downtown almost every day on my lunch break & i never knew ducks have so much personality! some friends of ours have ducks, so we went to visit them this month & i got to hold a duck! #bestdayever

- i can't believe it was this time last year that we found out Thomas's job would for sure be ending in January. his company merged and they were moving the SC office to Iowa so everyone's job was ending in stages. he ended up getting a job offer (for the first job he interviewed for) 3 days after his previous job ended & was only out of work for a week and a half before starting the new job. now he is in a new job that he loves, even training new employees! it is crazy to look back at how we were feeling at this time last year & see how God orchestrated the entire thing!
