Whew, this past year has flown by! It’s amazing to look back at old emails from 2013 and see how God has had a constant hand in my life through everything. I am so grateful for the new friendships I’ve made, the opportunities I’ve had, and my supportive family who are always so encouraging. As we approach the new year, I thought I’d share this rad little quote from Emma Bombeck who reminds us to use our gifts to their full potential, “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say ‘I used everything you gave me.” How rad is that? Anyways, here’s a few photos from the past month in the Northwest with a few photos from Orcas Island, Nordstrom HQ, and the Anacortes ferry.
