Reflections of 2012...Renew in 2013!

Can you believe 2012 is coming to an end? As they always say, all good things must come to an end. That's very true! Of course, there were hard times for so many people, in the world and in our nation. But as I was reflecting about the year 2012, for Russell and I, it was a year full of blessings. Every year, I like to share one highlight of each month. Some months were slow paced, but most were stocked full of activities and most of all memories. I only share one picture for each month though, so here we go!
Russell and I visited Crystal Bridges museum together for the first time. We love living in NWA! It was beautiful.
Friends helped me surprise Russell with a birthday party! We had pizza, cake, and best of all, friends! :) He was so surprised. It was too much fun.
 As Spring arrived, so did our desire to go walking together! We loved seeing the beauty of God's creation while we walked.
 We traveled to Bartlesville, OK to meet The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond! It was amazing and oh so much fun!
We moved back in our house we own! Blessings abound!
 My family came to see us. Also, Russell's whole Price side of the family came to NWA. We had a great family reunion together.
 As we endured the heat, we still enjoyed going to the farmer's market on the square. Mandy and I were so glad to be there while Kris Allen sang! It was great.
 We visited the Precious Moments park. It is one of our favorite places to go. So sweet.
 Our 5 year wedding anniversary!
We celebrated at The Melting Pot. It is SO good!
 I went with one of my friends to see Point of Grace in concert. They are so talented and one of my favorite music groups.
 We saw Carrie Underwood in concert!!!! It was officially the BEST concert EVER!
We had many wonderful times with family and friends. We also had a great time hosting our Sunday school Christmas party. Such fun!
So, here's to 2012 being filled with memories, and mostly, here's to a blessed 2013 for all of you!
Reflect on special moments and memories, and let God refine you in the NEW year!
Happy New Year 2013!
