10 Favorite Pictures for 2018 That Bring Me Joy

Hello Foxy Friends! Hope you all had a great weekend. I'm linking up today with The Blended Blog for another Monday Topic. Today is all about what brings me joy? Erin is also hosting 10th on the 10th and today's topic is Favorite Pictures of 2018. I thought those two topics worked well together. So here are my favorite pictures of 2018 that bring me joy.

| ONE |

Okay so technically this is New Years Eve, but still sort of counts. But love these people of mine, we typically get together them with every Friday and I look forward each week to ending the usually LONG week with these people. Bringing in the new year with these people, wouldn't have it any other way.

The place where I live. I am so blessed to live somewhere with great weather year round, with the ability to go to the snow and the beach all in one day.


I don't talk about my faith much here, but being able to share our faith, love and devotion with the children brings me joy. To see them understand something and to truly understand His love brings me great joy.

So this is technically two pictures, but one topic, so we'll count it as one. I love that Baby Fox and Mini Fox love playing sports. It brings me joy to see them love playing sports and getting better each year.

When I got pregnant with Mini Fox, my parents moved down by us to be closer to their only grandkids. I love that they have their own relationship with them and that my dad can pick up Baby Fox after school to take him to get french fries, or they can come over whenever they want to see them and vice versa. It's sad to think but my parents have a finite amount of time left and it brings me joy to know that they will have such fond memories with them.

Friends. This year we've made a bunch of new friends, and it's so nice to have a group of woman who, not only you get along with, but all of the kids get along too, and the husbands, it seems like a rare thing, but everyone gets along and it's been so great to get to know new friends.

This was taken at a Memorial day party and it was such a blast that we had lunch which then turned into dinner, that's a good party!


Another three for one topic. But being able to travel with the family. It's been so fun, now that Mini Fox can sleep in the same room as someone and not talk their ear off and actually go to sleep. It brings me such joy to be able to show the kids so many different places, give them amazing expereiences and we're hoping to get outside of the US at some point soon!

Family. I love that as we get older, all of the cousins in the family have started their own traditions. We make a point to get together at least 3 times a year, always on Super Bowl Sunday, 4th of July and Cousin Christmas (happening this weekend). I love that my kids know who their cousins are, and that they are getting the same experience I got growing up with my cousins.

My blogging friends! All of the ladies from The Blended Blog. I love that we make a point to take some time out of each year to travel from all over to see each other. Some are missing from this photo, and I really hope they can come next year, but I love spending time with these people. They bring me joy, we talk fashion, we talk family, friends, nothing is too secret to talk about. Plus finally getting to hug them in person, always a good thing.

Another friend category. This picture makes me ridiculously happy. See all the kids in their PJ's? Yep, cause we like to call each other up at 8pm and say, hey want to go on an ice cream run? Those are my people that take their kids out at 8pm to get ice cream. It's become a great tradition. I mean we do other things with them too, but this one brings me joy, I mean what's not to love, ice cream and friends.

So I realize that most of these pictures are selfies, sorry about that. But most of the time, I really don't have anyone to take a picture...

So what brings you joy?
