What A Year

What a year 2011 has been. 
It has been full of moments of happiness, love, joy, tears and extreme hurt.

We finally saw an RE and were had a few attempts at getting pregnant.
Each attempt was unsuccessful. 
They brought millions of tears, moments of doubt, and tons of frustration. 
But with each new cycle our faith was renewed that one day we would be parents. 
We are still holding on with all our might to that faith.

This past year we also made a huge decision to move to Texas.
It was something we discussed for years and finally made the leap.
Leaving my family and friends ripped my heart out. 
But it's reminded me how much they mean to me and I will never again take them for granted. 
While living in Texas hasn't been everything we dreamed of,
it is growing on me and I actually do love the area we live in. 

More than anything this past year has brought Travis and I so much closer.
I know neither of us ever thought we would face some of the trials we have,
but it has forced us to communicate our true emotions at times we really didn't want to.
For that I am grateful.
I have seen a side of my husband I may have never seen if not for these challenges. 
Our marriage isn't perfect, 
but every day I know I married the best guy for me.

2012 will be our year.
It has to be! 


  1. Hoping 2012 is much happier for you :)

  2. The past year definitely brought it's share of "challenges" so the year ahead can only be better. I'm thankful that 2011 brought me YOU! Keep plugging, sister. We're going to take over in 2012!
