Weekly Brew: Tulips, Art and a Refreshed Soul

March and April have felt like a whirlwind of activity for our family. Anyone else? It seems like even with all of our scheduled events, we barely spent any time together!

Happy 2017!

Another year, another new start.

Our family’s plans for the weekend involve a second Christmas celebration and church on Sunday with extended family,  lots of laughter and delicious food, and relaxing at home later with our furry friends.

I’m very much looking forward to the year ahead. Fresh starts always seem like a good idea. I can’t wait to see what it brings and what amazing things God will do.

Happy New Year!
