About Me

My photo
I created this blog as a way to "Keep up with the Joneses"! We feel so blessed to get to spend everyday together and my hope is that this blog is a way for us to look back and remember our journey together! I know this will evolve and I cannot wait to see what it turns in to. I have recently added my side business on to the blog. I taking a leap of faith with my photography and cannot wait to see what happens. I hope you enjoy!

YL Leader Retreat

Every year we get to go to some type of leader retreat with YL. Sometimes it is with tons of areas, sometimes a few, but this year we just went with Grapevine Colleyville. It was such a treat! We got to spend the weekend together laughing, praying, dreaming and resting for the upcoming semester. We were definitely spoiled rotten. Thankful for these friends, for GCYL and for another semester.

Thankful for GCYL,

Chicago 2016

Crazy to think that it had been almost 3 years since we went to Chicago to visit the Blandford crew! They have been making lots of trips to TEXAS so we haven't gone there. It was so fun to get up there to spend time with them. It was a little (ALOT) cold, but we had the best time exploring the city. Already looking forward to the next trip back!

Thankful for family & weekend trips,

Christmas 2015

We are very fortunate that we get to see both of our families every year for Christmas. This year was no exception we spent Christmas Eve and Christmas day with my family and then headed to Lubbock for Christmas with the Joneses. Christmas with my family was so fun because it was Ruthie's first Christmas. We baked, hung out and just enjoyed spending time together. Christmas with the Joneses was unexpected, but amazing. We always have fun when we are together even when a blizzard comes through Lubbock and ruins our plans of going to Santa fe. We played games, ate lots of food, relaxed, laughed a lot and made sweet memories. Christmas 2015 was amazing and I am so thankful for the family we have been given to celebrate with.

Thankful for Christmas,

To kick of Christmas break we got to load some busses with our favorite high school friends and GCYL to head to the mountains. We stayed at Crooked Creek Ranch and took busses in every day to ski at Winter Park. It was my second year to take girls and it was a BLAST. Being in the snow sure did kick off the Christmas season in such a special way! 

Thankful for GCYL, the snow and weeks of adventure,
