The Hall's Year In Review: 2013 Edition:

As we ring in this New Year
And we reflect on what has been
Let us continue to count our blessings
And start fresh once again!


As I sit here and type and reflect on all that our year has given us, I feel overwhelmed with how truly blessed we have been!

This year was a celebration of so many firsts with our sweet Charli:

And so many other little moments and memories scattered in between!

We of course have our ups and downs, our good times and bad, and still cope with my Illness day in and day out. But that is what makes it life!
Thank you 2013, for giving us all that you did, and for truly making it such a great year!

As wonderful as 2013 was to us, I cannot wait to see what 2014 has in store for our little family!


My goals and resolutions as we enter the New Year, is what I already strive to do with every new day...
And that is to better myself as a wife, a mother, a friend, and to be a better person!

I hope everyone has a blessed and Happy New Year! 
Here's to 2014!!!
