Happy End of 2012, Everyone!

I have a hard time with Christmas ending because I love all the family time, music, tasty food and beautiful decorations, and I hate to see it all end so abruptly! I do look forward to the New Year coming with a chance to start fresh. For some reason, I get into super cleaning mode, but before that kicks in, I thought I'd share the 12 most popular posts of 2012. It's been a wonderful blogging year for me, and I'm very much looking forward to 2013! Thanks for all of your support and encouragement as I make my way through medical school, doing fun projects on the side!

Here are the most popular posts in no particular order:

We're in Seattle with family right now... enjoying company and some refreshing rain :)

Hope you all have a lovely end of the year!

Joy To The World - Printable

Sunday, December 16, 2012
Hi friends!

Sorry for being MIA for so long... I'm on my OB/GYN rotation and it turns out there are a lot of people having babies this month, which is keeping me busy! Hopefully I'll get in another post this week about a Christmas craft, but I'll start by sharing this free printable I made: "Joy To The World" in the shape of a Christmas tree! Feel free to use it however you would like! (It's a JPEG. Right click it for larger size)

I love the Christmas season for so many reasons. I love the time with family and friends, the smell of evergreen trees, the taste of fresh fudge and homemade cookies, the beautiful lights and decorations. Most of all, I love that Jesus came to our dark and hurting world to bring salvation, love, guidance, hope, and light!

I hope you find this little graphic encouraging to you this Christmas season!

Autumn in New York - Nature

Friday, November 30, 2012
About a month ago, my sister-in-law came to visit us in Albany. Betsy is amazing and I am so blessed to have her as a sister and friend! We had a great time traveling to Vermont and spending time in Saratoga, NY. Here are some photos documenting our adventures!

Brother and sister!


Andrew... always making me laugh!

Playing in the leaves! 

Best homemade ice cream!

Beautiful fall colors

Homemade chili for dinner

Isn't she a beauty? Too bad her sweet hubby couldn't come visit this time!

We loved having Betsy visit, and we can't wait until both she and her husband Brock can come visit together! Very much looking forward to seeing them at Christmas time in Seattle!
