Happy New Year 2016!'s me....

Aaaah, that never gets old!  Just don't ask my husband & kids! ;-)  (Future Lauren, just in case you're reading this 20 years from now, remember this is a line from an Adele song.) :-) 

Happy new year everyone!  I hope yall got to enjoy some time away from schedules, school & work and were able to spend your time relaxing with family.  We had a nice 2 weeks off...we ate a lot, we visited family, we went to the ballet, waited for Santa & got to bring the new year in together!

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
This is my word for 2016.  Courage can be applied to your life in so many a wife, a mother, decision making, stepping out of your comfort zone, willingness to open your mind to something new, etc.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what 2016 brings for our family & how I can become better in every title I hold.

Here are a few of my favorite snapshots from the past 2 weeks...

My dad came home from 5 months in Puerto Rico!

All dolled up for The Nutcracker ballet

Cheers to 2016!  Let's make it a good one!
