Farewell, 2015 | An Insta-Recap

2015.

Where did the time go? It feels like just yesterday I was eagerly awaiting it's beginning! It's been a wonderful year full of my Heavenly Father's blessing; not exempt of sorrows & trials but also full of joy, hope +growth.

I joined Instagram back in February & it's been a great way to document this year in pictures! I love going back through my feed and seeing those visual reminders of beautiful moments in time. 2015 started with getting my first phone ever! Got my first out of home job ever. My sister was baptized. I began shooting RAW (I'm never going back), shot weddings/renewal of vows for 3 of my friends, became addicted to chocolate chip frappes + Chick-Fil-A frosted lemonades (and who am i kidding, spicy chicken sandwiches & waffle fries too). I learned that I need to love more. We had our first baby sheep in the farm, my Bella dog had puppies, we harvested in abundance from our gardens, and loved summertime despite the heat.  I quit my job. I took pictures everyday for the month of July (who's joining me next year?!). I turned 21. Re-opened my Etsy shop and had my most successful year ever. I UPGRADED TO A FULL FRAME CAMERA. It's been a year full of my Heavenly Father's love and grace & I'm so excited to see what He has in store.

Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.

My 2015 Favorite Photographs | Year Recap!

I am still in disbelief that we are about to enter into the year 2016...just typing it out feels weird! I don't have a lot to say for this post & they say "a picture is worth a thousand words", so I will let the photos speak for themselves. I went through all my photos I've taken this year & it's funny because when I see how many I've taken it feels kinda overwhelming to just choose a few! But I finally narrowed it down and here they are! It's been so nice to "re-live" the year through photos & I hope you will enjoy too!

But I have trusted in your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
Psalm 13:5

And then my cup overflowed & I was blessed beyond measure

If you would have told me a month ago, the exciting-ness that would be coming this past month, I would have said "you are crazy. something like that is impossible for me." And it's true. But my struggles, my limitations, my "impossible", these things aren't impossible for my Father in Heaven. But this story isn't mine. It's His and how He has worked in wonderful never-imaginable ways in my life.

A few weeks back, I had the incredible opportunity of buying the camera of my dreams. The camera that I prayed for a year ago and then forgot about, but my Heavenly Father didn't. A camera that was out of my budget, but as always, He provided.
Yahweh Yireh. The Lord Will Provide.
And ooohhhh my word, I am in love!
