2013 In Review

2013 was definitely the year of Jack!  It's embarrassing if you look at my Instagram feed, it's all just pics of the little man.  I've officially become the one behind the camera these days, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I just realized I never wrote a recap for 2012, but that was definitely the year of preparation and nesting.  We moved into a new home and just as we were getting settled got pregnant!  2011 was our year of stability and 2010 was the year of change

Biggest Accomplishments:   Becoming parents, surviving the sleep-deprived newborn phase without killing each other, and having such a happy, silly, beautiful, funny and curious little man. 

I'm also proud of Jason and I for getting our finances in better order this year using Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University.  We also joined an amazing church family and had Jack baptized in August.

Looking forward to...

Happy New Year!!!  I hope you have a wonderful time ringing in 2014.  We will be doing so at home with some wine and a homemade meal...hopefully I can talk Jason into cooking!

The Purifoys


  1. HA! My cousin was joking with me at Christmas that I have an entire Instagram dedicated to Wyatt....I know how you feel!
    Sean's in the same boat as Jason...Wyatt's birthday, Mother's day, my birthday, and our anniversary are all within 6 weeks of each other as well!

    Sounds like a great year, here's to 20-14!

  2. Happy New Year! What a year, wow =) I hope 2014 is just as fun. I hope you talked Jason into cooking!
