The Last Day of 2015

Today is the last day of 2015! Wow! What a year. I shared this on Instagram, as I was reflecting on this past year, just the other night. We had such a BIG and amazing year. 

2015! What a MEMORABLE year. I'm sure Ryan and I will talk about this year to our grandchildren often. We travelled to many beautiful places, and picking a favorite is hard, but my birthday trip to Charleston and Clearwater is definitely at the top of the list. My grandma gracefully went to Heaven with all of her family by her side. One word to describe the moment she slipped away from earth and into Heaven - beautiful - that moment will always be in my heart as a beautiful one. She wouldn't have done it any other way. She's my angel and I feel her with me always. The most loving, smart, kind, handsome man asked me to be his wife. I just asked him today, 'how did I get so lucky to be your wife?' I fall in love with him more and more everyday. And some days, like today, all we've done is lay around the house and watch the snow fall. And still my love grows deeper and deeper. That man I love so, he finished his Bachelors degree from UCM! I'm so proud of him. I had laparoscopy surgery and found out I have stage IV endometriosis. That day marks the beginning of our journey to Baby Smith. And, because we thought this year needed just a little more spice to make it one to remember, we bought a pink house in a cute little suburban neighborhood. Moving in January is always smart. Last, but certainly not least, my love, faith and connection to God has only grown stronger!

This was our Christmas and New Years card we sent out to friends and family. We loved the glow of the grass in this photo from our wedding day! 

This poem! It's perfect for 2016. 


To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind. 
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity 
to every person you meet. 

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true. 

To think only the best, to work only for the best, 
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others 
as you are about your own. 

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile. 

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have not time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for
fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. 

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the
world, not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you. 

By Christian D. Larson

Here's to wishing you and yours all the very best in 2016. A year full of love, joy, health, and success! 

With love xo 
Wen and Ryan
