2020 Happy Photos

"For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you and 
not to harm you to give you a future and hope." Jeremiah 29:11

This verse has been a bit of a North Star to our family from the early years. 2020 is certainly no different. In fact, it's been all the more comforting in these times!

We hope you and your family are well. We pray you all are. It seemed fitting to check in with a little visual Hello from Us. 

First up, a Spring Concert our son was in for his Senior Chorus. Since we homeschool, we chose a Fine Arts for his final art credit. We have loved our home school journey and have been blessed by it. (If you need a hand or have questions, feel free to email me from my About page. We're happy to help. It's a rewarding journey.)

Quarantine afforded us more time with our love of biking! It was so great to be back out there more regularly and we continue to enjoy this as a family and as a couple. Spring was an amazing blessing. This year was particularly gorgeous. 

The upside of all of this year has been time. We have loved the blessing of time as a family and with amazing friends. 

Our guys having fun with their friends is always a bonus. 

Our graduate!! 2020 was a blessing for our senior! He has worked so hard and yes, the twins were six months old when 9 / 11 happened and our senior was graduating during this 2020 global pandemic. Our other twin spent the second half of his freshman year of college navigating overnight online college. We trust the Lord and again He knows the plan He has for us. 

Happy moments senior year for our Raleigh Hawks Senior! So any incredible games and emotions. For many of us, we stepped off of the basketball courts for the last time, not knowing we would compete inn our final games, our east coast championship. We made the best of it and our son showed incredible stamina. We are yet to see the strength of this generation. 

More good work out time with my man, my Boulder Mt. Man. 

4th of July! God Bless America! 

We grew tomatoes during the pandemic! :) This was so rewarding. So many good meals homemade together and with homegrown tomatoes. 

Breaking News: I taught myself (well the internet did) how to make Sour Dough Bread! With our own homegrown sour dough starter! It's been amazing and we have loved it!  I enjoy it so much. It has been tricky and takes some work.


We have had a wonderful time as a family at the beach together. Talk about re-centered and refreshed! 

Our church has blessedly been praying and walking through the pandemic leading us well. 
We were moved by their thoughtfulness and this little ceremony and special moments for a senior night 
at our church. 

We love these young men and our sons' community. 

Celebrate 2020! 

We love vegetarian lasagna again. 

Family! These times together are a little lagniappe! 

Another epic lake ride with my love! 

Family! We loved having our South Carolina now California family here! 

We loved all being together again! So thankful and blessed by time well spent. 

Summer Sunsets are the best! 

When the boys dog sit, the girls meet them at the door after work!  Our lifeguards worked so hard this summer keeping our community safe! 

Neighbors share their produce, too! So it made for some more amazing shrimp creole! 

This was delicious! A Emeril Lagasse Shrimp Creole is life! 

Our dear neighbors helped surprise our senior with a socially distanced outdoor space for his Senior Party!

Brothers at the Beach! #thankful 

The good stuff. 

How are  you this 2020! Now, that's a question. We do want to know how you are.
