Year in Review

Wow, what a year this has been! To sum it up, 2018 has been the year of visitors for us! We’ve had 8 groups of people who were able to see us in Utah this year! 5 of those were able to actually come to our home.

2018 is also been extremely special for our family because my sister and brother-in-law brought baby Adalyn into the world! I was lucky enough to spend two whole weeks in Indiana getting to know my darling niece.

Keith and I did quite a bit of traveling between ski trips and road trips throughout the year. We checked off new adventures that ranged from hikes to festivals to shows and even a new job for Keith. There really was just too much to write about so instead check out these highlights in pictures!

Did you review the year?

I’ve always taken the chance to reflect on periods of time. The end of a season or the year is always a great time to do this. Look back and think about what you have accomplished and set new goals going forward.

Do you take time to this in your own life?

What were your highlights of 2018?

What goals do you have 2019?
