There is something so very special about the New Year, it just feels good to start completely over. However, 2017 will be a hard year to beat. It definitely had it’s ups and downs, but for the most part it was a really good year. I’m finding it hard to not be a little bit sad. 2017 brought us the last piece to our puzzle, it completed our family. August 10, 2017 at 10:21 am Brock Matthews Taylor entered this world, at 6lbs 3oz and 19 inches long.
Sterling Kate turned 3 in September and has grown so much! Our middle little, Lyncoln Lyn turned two in December and we are proud to announce that she is POTTY TRAINED! All the praise hands for this one!
Matt got a job promotion and is now the Regional Assistant Manager for Select Energy Services for the Permian Basin, thus requiring the “big move.” We no longer reside in Lubbock Texas, and are working really hard at “home is where ever I’m with you.”
We have definitely had to adapt to a new normal. We are missing the heck out of those lonely Lubbock lights, the best sets of grandparents, obviously Rosas, and last but certainly not least our church.
I am looking forward to a fresh start. I have been thinking about a word I want to carry with me through 2018, and the word strength keeps coming to mind. This year I was to grow. I want to strengthen my faith, relationships, body, mind, and heart. I want to become a better wife and mother. I want to grow in my walk with the Lord, to give more, to learn more, and I am excited to see what the Lord has in store.
Here is a sweet video by our dear friend, Lauren. This was the highlight of 2017 for our sweet little family. Brockie Boy, you complete us! I never want to spend another day without you!
We hope 2017 was a great year for you, and we pray 2018 is even better! Happy New Year to you and yours!
