Home. I love home. I think it was my most favorite part of the new year — spending it by the ocean with its gentle washing against the winter sand. I love the air and the calmness away from the busy moments of life. There’s more space to reflect and rest and that’s really what I want for this year. More moments of abiding in God’s word and waiting for Him to lead me. More moments of slowness and more moments of being present where I am with the people I love. So, here’s to 2017 and the nights that give way to the glittery sunrises of the New Year with its freshness, happiness, and warm cups of coffee in the freezing air. I am so hopeful for all the things that the new year brings, but for now, here are some of my favorite memories of friends and home and beauty. Happy New Year!
