I love year in review posts! For a few years I put together entire recaps of our whole year, but holy cow, I do not have time for that- as much as I love to read them!! Last year, I put together a year in review post where I shared one favorite photo from each month. So, I’m doing that again this year! It’s still surprisingly hard to only pick one picture from each month. I always find myself wanting to choose at least like….five. But I made myself stick to one each(minus baby birthday month!) and it was a fun exercise to see what I came up with.
2015 was a really big year for the Spena family. A new van, a new baby, we sold our home, and bought a new one. We started homeschool Kindergarten with Abigail, continued to lead music at our church, spent time with family and friends, and celebrated Jim’s 30th birthday.
And as I looked back through all of our pictures from this year, the biggest thing that stood out to me was how much we love each other. Our family is the most wonderful gift that we have- given to us by our gracious and loving heavenly Father. Every good and perfect gift that we have has come from His hand- and we are so incredibly thankful for the abundant evidence of those gifts in 2015.
So with all of that being said, here are my 12(ish) pictures from this year!
As you can see, 2015 was incredibly good to us. And we’re just so thankful.
Cheers to 2016, friends. Thank you for following along with us and may God bless you and your family this coming year.
Oh, what a year! Lots of similarities between our years. So many good things! Wishing you & your family so much love & happiness in 2016, friend!
Oh, mama. What joy this year!! I hear myself through your words in a similar post I have scheduled tomorrow. Love. Your. Heart!!! CHEERS to 2015 and to the adventures to come next year! xx
Such an amazing year for you guys! 2016 has a lot of work to do to top this one 😉
Wow! Y'all had a busy and AWESOME year! I just love all of the photos of your beautiful family 🙂
Lil miss A's face when Mabel is getting baptized, still priceless
It was a big year at your house!! I loved seeing all the smiles and your pictures seem to radiate happiness. Hope 2016 is another wonderful year filled with blessings for y'all 🙂
Happy 2016! Crazy. Great idea to choose one picture from each month!
Love this idea, I can only imagine how hard it is to pick just one photo! You can really see in all these pictures how happy and how much you all love each other such a nice thing to see! Abigail and Mabel on Halloween has to be a favourite of mine!
October's picture might be my favourite! haha. i couldn't even chose one book for each month, so i don't know how you narrowed the photos down 😉 can't wait to see what 2016 has in store for you!
What a great year! Congrats on your new addition to your family! Wishing you the best in 2016! <3
