2020 In Pictures

Well. 2020 was a YEAR! I love putting together this blog post each year as a nice recap. If you’re new here this is a great place to start and to get to know us better ๐Ÿ™‚

2020 threw us all for some major curveballs but we still had a great year and made the best of things – we pushed through and found ways to still have fun and make memories and, most of all, come together as a family.

Here’s hoping that the 2021 in Pictures post has a LOT more TRAVEL ๐Ÿ˜‰

This post will cover the major highlights from each month of 2020 and links to each blog post!

January

We didn’t know it but we had our last normal non-masked Disney trip as as family (It’s CRAZY to see the crowd pictures waiting for Rise of Resistance, I wonder if we’ll ever go back to that level of crowds again?!)

February

Britt made THE most important decision of her LIFE – to become a Christian!

We celebrated Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day too!

I also had one of THE most dramatic dinners EVER…

And Kye and I had a mother-son weekend with Tiffany and her boys to Atlanta

The girls and I also had a girl’s trip to Disney with Julie and Ella Kate which was at the very end of February and I’m so glad we hugged soooo many characters! It was like a “goodbye for now, see ya real soon” kinda moment.
