Farewell, 2015 | An Insta-Recap

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.

  1. I love love love looking through my personal instagram and vsco feeds at the end of the year, because those little treasured moments so quickly escape my memory! I'm actually working on doing a post just like this too! #greatminds ;)
    The Lord has worked in marvelous ways in our lives this year, and I loved reading your testimony of His mercy and grace in your days of 2015. May He bless you ever more sweet girl in the new year that is upon us!
