{2018 // a year in Review}

Good morning and Happy Monday! I took a break from this space and Instagram for a couple of weeks to fully enjoy and embrace the holidays with my sweet family. And that I did! I will recap Christmas soon, but today I wanted to take a look back at 2018. It's always bittersweet, the last day of the year. 2018 was filled with so many great times, but I also look forward to what 2019 has in store for us. Here is a look at 2018 with Hall Around Texas...

  • More basketball games.
  • Our annual trip to the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Nate has been going since he was a baby, I started going with Nathan in 1996 and Mason has gone every year since he was a baby. It's a family tradition that Nathan's Grandfather started with him as a baby.
