Favorite Moments from 2011

1 Comment

2011 has been a good year. Actually, it has been a great year. Full of challenges, changes, and blessings. I’m grateful for all that I’ve been able to experience and learn this year, and excited to see how God will move in 2012.

Here are some pictures of my favorite moments from 2011:

I met (and taught!) Luke nearly 10 years ago as an 8th Grader in Sunflower, Mississippi.  It was an honor to have dinner with him before he ventured off to law school!

Jovian and I, having a little too much fun while being bridesmaids in one of my best friend’s weddings.  It was a privilege to stand in agreement for the union that was taking place.

I was blessed this year to be able to present at the North Carolina School Counselor Association on financial aid for students.  This is me, in the car, following the presentation.  Finally able to relax after hard work!  Praise God for the opportunity to share knowledge with others!

Camille and I, celebrating UNC’s Homecoming!  One of the great joys of this year has been able to reconnect with Camille and continue to build and strengthen our fellowship.  She is so awesome, and I’m blessed to have her in my life.

Me, at the baby shower for one of my best friends.  I can’t believe my friends are old enough to have babies!  It seems like we were JUST in college.  Nevertheless, I was so happy to be there to support her; and I love being an auntie to my little nephew!

Me, with Whitney, who is a former student turned Tar Heel!  It was great to be able to help her through the college application process and have her in class as a senior, and I’m even more delighted that she chose UNC for the next four years.  She’s going to take the world by storm, and I hope she doesn’t forget Ms. Davis when it happens.

I’m so thankful to God for the many blessings of this year!  2012 has big shoes to fill!

God-chaser. NC native, now planted in Jacksonville, FL. Happily married to a handsome church-planting pastor. I am easily excited by Jesus, education, cupcakes, Moleskine notebooks, and Pepsi. Overwhelmed by God's amazing grace, undeserving of His love and mercy.
