instagram weekend love...

well, hello there...
2012!
thankful for a new 24, 
a new 366 days (leap year), 
a new beginning and a
a fresh start!

i have been enjoying the past 2 weeks being on break 
and spending time with my family...
my parents included since they are here visiting from california!

we did a WHOLE lot of nothing...
and it was good...

we did a bit of shopping...
which included visiting and browsing in one of my fave stores...
anthropologie : ).


visited michael and meagan with my parents
a couple of times at chick fil a
so that they could see the grandkids at work and in action!


squeezed 2 or 3 runs in 
when i really should have done more!


rung in the new year with a toast of sparkling white grape juice....


started the bible in a year on my youversion bible app...


and i was itching to do another photo challenge...
nothing like the 365 photo a day like i did in 2010
but something a little more manageable...
and voila!
my blogger friend jozen from lolasgirl
inspired me with this challenge!


photo a day challenge:
day 1: YOU

day 1 of photo challenge done...
day one of 2012 done...
first post of the year done!

 so as this year unfolds
i'm gonna keep on keeping on
seeking God for strength 
to carry me through
another year of everything that life brings...
sadness, joy, trials, hope, heartbreaks, peace, love...

"great is His faithfulness; 
his mercies begin afresh each morning"

Happy New Year Alely. Are your parents still in town. I was on vacation for the last couple of weeks and it was so nice to do nothing. Back to reality today. I was thinking about doing a photo challenge, maybe I should join Jozen's group.

Hurray for Instagram! I think I'm on Instagram more these days than I am blogging! That photo a day challenge is super fun to do!

Happy new year, Alely! A whole lot of nothing is sometimes very much welcomed :). Have a great weekend!
