2009 in pictures

On the last day of the year, it seems natural to look back and remember my favorite moments from the past year. And since I’m a big picture person, here’s my favorite shots and memories from 2009…

Justin & Lauren visited over New Years last year. We always have a blast together!

I went to Jacksonville, FL with Dad for a UM conference

Aaron and I walked all over Seattle for a couple days. Had a great trip!

We added Zoe to our family in March 🙂

Taught confirmation at two of our campuses in the spring – so much fun to see teens question, challenge and deepen their faith

I got to see my sister graduate from college in May! She’s a great teacher

My favorite shot from the summer! Taken at a cookout to celebrate the beginning of summer 🙂

Went to Indianapolis with a great group of teenagers on a mission trip

We went to Gatlinburg with Aaron’s family in June. Great week! We celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary that week 🙂

I love being an aunt to Kade 🙂

I didn’t get to be there but my dad’s last Sunday at St. John UMC was in June. I love that church.

My sister got married in July and we had a blast all being together!

I spent a week in Nome, Alaska with a group from my seminary. Great experience!

We went on a cruise to Mexico with Justin and Lauren in August 🙂

Got to know a great group of young adults at Exploration 09 🙂

We hosted my whole family in Ohio for Christmas!

Happy New Year!
