This blog has been a great way for me to connect with my family and friends back home when we are away.  Since starting back to school in August, I have felt the need to get rid of the clutter in many areas of my life.  The online world has been one area I have let slack (gladly), and I plan to say goodbye to this blog in 2014.  Thanks for sticking around whoever you are :)  It's been fun.

We have been so incredibly blessed this year.  
I can't wait to see what God has in store for our family in the coming year!
