One Year Ago…


One year ago, this precious baby girl was born and life would never be the same. 


This year has been full of it’s ups and downs, but Taylor has been my constant.  Every minute with her is such a blessing!  A day doesn’t go by that I don’t thank God for her.  She is my proof of God’s faithfulness! I’m not too sad to see it go, because watching her grow up and develop is such a joy!  I feel that I did the best job I could to savor every moment. 

Life is no where the same as it was the night she was born.  It’s all so very different and I could of never predicted it, but I wouldn’t change a thing.  Life continues to evolve and we adapt and I trust in the Lord’s path for us.  At the end of the day, we are family, we are loved, we are healthy, and she is my everything. 

Preparations are underway for Taylor’s Birthday Extravaganza this weekend and I cannot wait to celebrate her with all my loved ones!
