Overwhelming Blessings...(Personal)

Oh, where to start...
I guess I'll start at the very beginning, a very good place to start!
This year has been filled with unforgettable moments, each full with God's kindness.
I'm truly grateful for each of these moments, whether they were difficult, fun, oh-so-annoying or hilariously awkward.After all, it's the difficult times that make the sweet times so much sweeter.
This year started with a skip,jump and a leap - of faith. 
Coming to the conclusion, with much prayer and many questions, that I should go to Cosmetology school, I started this past January. Everyday since then, God has literally poured his grace and mercy on me. He overflowed my cup with peace and gladness to be in a completely different kind of atmosphere where I was to be pushed out of my comfort zone, for His glory, every.single.day.(i'm sorry but i don't have a picture for this one:))
Fast forwarding a few months- 
I had a front row seat(quite literally) to watch my sister agree to become Mrs. Seredich.
What a joy it was for me and my family to watch her thoroughly enjoy this sweet and fun time that she was blessed with. What a blessing it was for all of us to recount God's faithfulness in each of our own lives as well and how far He has brought us.

NEXT '10 was.a.blast.
This conference was chalked full of amazing teachings from awesome pastors, grace filled community groups and a deeper knowledge of who God is. You will,guaranteed, walk away from this conference being more in awe of and on fire- for God.

Family vacations are the best.
No joke.
This vacation to the OBX was no different let me tell you.
Good times were had by all. From lazy beach days, to lazy pool days, to table flying, to stair surfing, to neighbor watching,to eat-all-you-want-days(which was pretty much everyday), to read 5 books in a day, to stargazing, to driving ON the beach, to golf cart driving, to breaking the golf cart with no one in the cart having shoes on to walk the few miles back, to watching Kung fu Panda a million times...yep, we pretty much did it all.

A couple months later- 
and guess what happened! My sister got married!A shocker I know. That typically happens once you're engaged. This was the funnest wedding I've ever been to, I'm probably a little biased but just go with me here...
Our family, the day before the wedding got to take a very relaxing boat ride from Herrington Harbor. It was our last outing as the four unmarried sisters:) Let's keep it going girls!:D
The wedding day was filled with smiles, laughter, tears and more laughter. Truly an unforgettable moment.
 Obviously, there were many other things going on in between these events but these few were ones that stuck out in my heart. 
I will never forget this year. I can't wait to see what else God has in store....besides my new niece coming in a couple weeks!
And the photos below are from a concert that I was able to go to a couple weeks ago.
A big shout out goes to McAllister !!!!

Oh, the depths of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?...
For from him and through him and to him are all things.
To him be the glory forever!

Romans 11:33-36
