It's almost a new decade!

Updated: Jan 5, 2020

OMG, it is almost 2020!!! It seems like I wrote a "how can it be 2019" post two weeks ago instead of an entire year ago. The old saying "time waits for no one" is so true. As I reflect back over 2019, I can only lift up my hands in praise to God. Everything was not perfect (far from actually), but I made it through and our family did as well. Our hardships taught me some very valuable lessons I am taking into 2020.

Even with some craziness and pain peppered into the year, 2019 was EPIC! We rented our camper "Lovie" quite a bit over the summer and even managed to take a few camping trips ourselves. (One lesson for next year...plan our trips early and put them on our rental calendar as "unavailable")

Probably some of our favorite rental customers from the summer. The boys just LOVED camping!

Another fabulous camping family. Camping is a wonderful way to spend QUALITY family time.

We kicked off our summer travels with National Dance Competition in Orlando, Florida!

Winning feels soooo good!

"Lovie" at Forrest Lake Campground. (Advance NC)

"Lovie" at the KOA in Charleston, SC (campsite was BEAUTIFUL)

I LOVED the Charleston/Mt. Pleasant KOA!

Girls trip to Myrtle Beach! September is a great beach month. (Not so terribly hot.)

To celebrate my birthday...I had a camping party! Sooo much fun!

Yes, I was THAT chic. I lit up the entire campground with my birthday lights!!

What a fabulous way to spend a birthday..camping with the people you love!

Bucket list item checked off for Jeff! The Dallas Cowboys stadium is amazing!

Of course we met camping people while were in Texas. This photo set a fire to Jeff's desire to upgrade our RV.

I was blessed to attend the 6th Dance Fit Divas Cruise with my Zumba ladies!

No caption needed! Girl time fun and sun in November!!

We spent the weekend after Thanksgiving at Myrtle Beach. We tried out a new campground called Carolina Pines in Conway, SC. We LOVED IT and have already made reservations for Memorial Day.

Our set-up at Carolina Pines. I love my palm tree!

The girls LOVE camping and every time we go we just HAVE to make smores!

The girls did their own photo shoot on the beach. (Windy Hill Beach, SC)

The kids have really taken to camping! It has been amazing to share nature with them!

Aryonna turned 18 on December 15th!!! Geeez...time slow down!

Merry Christmas to us! Jeff upgraded his truck and we decided to upgrade the RV to something large enough for 6 adults! (Since our kiddos are actually young adults!) We now have plenty of sleeping spaces and can't wait to share it with our rental customers.

Ahhhhhh! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We haven't been camping long but have truly been bitten by the camping bug. I had no idea what I was missing! So glad Jeff convinced me to seek adventure!

Don't let our smiles fool you....2019 played NO GAMES with our relationship and the continued blending of our families. Yet, through it all...we are moving forward. When you camp, things always go wrong (the weather may not cooperate or something may malfunction with the RV) but you cannot let those things spoil the entire trip. It sounds easy to do but when things don't go as planned, perspective can be compromised.

So we must pull out the board games and watch the animal channel with my commentary when the rain keeps us inside. Yep, we camp anyway.

Press on.

Keep moving forward.

But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. -Phil 3:13-14
