I'm back!!! Better late than never :)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! I am few days late, but not too shabby considering I haven't been on here in a year!!! A whole year! Crazy! I think I just got sucked into facebook, but I am going to turn over a new leaf and do better about documenting the details of our little world.
2011 has been an insanely wonderful year for me. I was able to do LOTS of traveling (my favorite thing!!!!) I went to Panama city beach twice, Nauvoo, IL for youth conference, Las Vegas with my Springville girlfriends, and on a Disney Cruise and to Disneyworld. Lots of fun, amazing memories! Other big news this year is weight loss...Nate and I have both lost quite a bit and it has been wonderful buying all new clothes. It gives us a both a whole new level of confidence. We owe it all the FABULOUS Amy Fortin. She's my workout guru...and one of my best friends. Now the goal is run a 5K and maintain, maintain, maintain!
Other HUGE news...Nate is in the process of buying out his law partner and will be the sole owner of the lawfirm Francis, Fentress, and Craig. Super exciting and scary all at once! I couldn't be more proud. He works so hard and deserves every good thing this life has to offer!!
While sharing this news with family, Nate's brother said, "SO, I guess that means you are staying in Kentucky?!?" The answer to that question is a resounding YES! We love it here and plan to raise our kids here. Long term goal is to build my dream home (It's already in my head :))
Anyway, we are so happy and feel so grateful. Nate continues to serve as bishop of our ward (It has already been 3 and a half years) and I know that he makes a difference and we are blessed for it. I am in my second year teaching seminary and I absolutely love it. Preparing a lesson 5 days a week is a lot of work, but I am learning so much and I am completely inspired by the awesome youth that I have the privilege of teaching. It is an honor!
That is 2011 in a nutshell. Looking forward to big changes in 2012 and making more great memories!!!
