Last Christmas

It's only 5 weeks till Christmas which means that it's been almost a year since Jonny and I were traveling Europe together on our honeymoon! (What! Where did that time go!?) It's been a whirlwind year for us. Extreme highs, and extreme lows.  From starting a new life together, to losing a huge part of my life, this year has been full of change. It's been so busy and I think its all the change that's been happening that is making me dream of our time away in Europe again. I crave slow mornings with no place to be, cold fresh air, and mountains. Last Christmas we were bundled up in a little hut in the Alps playing snap and drinking kids hot chocolates with whipped cream, blissfully unaware of what was going to happen in the year ahead of us. I've been thinking about that a lot lately, how we don't know the future or what it will hold but we know the One who holds that future in His hands, the same hands that created us intentionally. It's important to make beautiful memories with family & friends in life, but it's even more important to know Christ personally.
