Aaaaand just like that, 2017 is gone.
This past year will go down forever as one of my favorites, and I think the reason is pretty self-explanatory. Regardless, I will use a series of gifs and photos to explain most accurately what 2017 meant to me; the things I'm grateful for, the experiences had, and the ways things will never be the same.
First of all, this is obvious:
2017 marks the start of an era where I always have someone to lean on; my very own Scottie Pippen.
Family has been a huge blessing that I'm grateful for. Check it:
Like I said, family is dope.
I'm still not done with this whole family growth thing either. I don't know that there will be another year that I have as many additions to what I call my family (due to the little shindig on June 4). The crazy thing is that we weren't even done growing after the wedding!
My newest little dude Lincoln Jay Vliet was born August 14. He's pretty chill so far. Not much of a conversationalist, but he cool doh.
I'm also grateful for God's protection this past year. Not just for me, but for my family, Morgan, and her family as well! We had a little scare with this little guy a few weeks after he was born.
We've been fortunate, though, that God has our back better than Tim Duncan has Durantula's.
I loved 2017, but I don't want to ever do it again. I'm ready for new adventures! And I'm pumped to jump into whatever they may be with this little lady.
As you close out 2017, head into 2018, I wish you nothing but blessings and I hope it is 100% EPIC.
