2012: A Recap in Pictures

Posted By on Dec 28, 2012 in The Life I Live | 6 comments


This year has been a little crazy. So crazy that I haven’t written much. But not so crazy that I can’t recap the highlights. In pictures. I have this crazy tendency to think nothing everything changes, that it all stays the same. So this recap is more for me to see that I have, in fact, done some stuff. But I hope you enjoy it too.

I rang in 2012 in Nashville. (I know. It’s weird. I was just visiting back then.)

Pete and Brandi NYE

Here’s a picture from the evening. Me and one of my favorite pastors and his stunning wife. Love them. So thankful for the message of grace that they continually shout into my life.

Sister Visits

My sister came to California for a long weekend. We had a blast exploring. Restaurants. Museums. Beaches. Friends. They are all better with sister.

Blissdom

Made it back to Nashville for Blissdom. Loved reconnecting with old people. It was on this trip when I knew I had to move back.

Alli and I Tahoe

A trip to Tahoe. Good friends. Good snow. The perfect weekend retreat.

Haiti

Me and a small team from Project 7 ventured down to Haiti to see the incredible work of Plant with Purpose. Came home with a renewed passion to bring hope to the hopeless and a parasite that took me down for weeks. Bleh.

Sunset

A year in California gave me an opportunity to enjoy a lifetime of epic sunsets.

Bonfire

If I had a bucket list beach bonfire would have been on it. Along with running into the ocean in the freezing cold with all of my clothes on. Check. Check.

Closing the California chapter meant leaving some extraordinary people. Oh, how I hate the goodbyes.

Moving Back

 Closing the California chapter meant packing up. Oh, how I hate the packing up.

Grand Canyon

Closing the California chapter meant a cross country road trip with a brave friend. Oh, how I love a good road trip. We made a quick pit stop in the Grand Canyon. I was only a little scared that my-klutzy-self was going to trip and fall in.

Team

Meeting the new team. I LOVE working with the FH Artists Program team. They make my life better, they make me better.

Nieces

A quick trip to the Alabama Gulf Coast with the family.

Beach

Lots of family.

Africa

My first trip to Africa. Loved seeing the work of Food for the Hungry and traveling with such a fun and talented crew.

Honey's 90th

My grandmother, Honey, turned 90 this year. We celebrated in style.

Figs Visit

Back in the Nashville mix. And love introducing my California friends to all the wonderful things and people Tennessee has to offer.

CP 10th Anniversary

Cross Point celebrated 10 years. Thankful for a church, for a community, where Everyone’s Welcome, Nobody’s Perfect and Anything’s Possible.

Me and Mr Figueroa

Back to Orange County for Resurgence. A great excuse to spend some time with this guy, and his wife, and our crazy lot of friends.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving in Highlands. This is the fabulous moment where the whole family appeared to be sporty. Don’t be deceived folks. It was just a couple of hikes to waterfalls. The impromptu game of post-Thanksgiving lunch football is never going to happen.

Kite Runner

My last trip of the year was to the Dominican Republic. Jeffrey was La Cola’s Kite Runner. His kite was carefully crafted out of plastic bags and piece-mealed string. And the way he had that thing proudly sailing reminded me how God makes incredible things happen with scraps. With broken people just like me.

How was your 2012? What’s are a few highlights?

    Recently I was extremely low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!!! – yrh7
