New Beginnings to 2012

2012 started with many changes, mainly that of my divorce. This, as you can imagine, has been a long and difficult process. Colton has had a great support system and as always is adjusting well. His spirit is so giant, so adventurous and so resilient. He really is the greatest love of my life and Heavenly Father knew he was for me.

I have reflected on much these past few months and I just know of Heavenly Father's love for me. I still feel uncertain with many new paths I must travel, and as lost as I feel sometimes, I am sure Heavenly Father is lifting me up and helping me to feel joy in the things that matter most.

Here are a few pics of our new beginnings for 2012. Colton and I are so lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives!
