Reflecting on 2015



The popularity of the hashtag #2015bestnine along with Lauren's post {at Life Love Lauren} on the Little Things in 2015 had me reminiscing on 2015 today. And boy, what a year it has been.

It marked our 2nd year of living in Denver along with our 2nd year of marriage. It had it's shares of ups and downs - from starting this blog and taking many trips together, to learning to cope with loss.

I love what Lauren said about the year being made up of small moments that all come together to make our day to day life. Years from now I may not remember the big things, and I certainly will not remember the little things, but all of it played a role in the life we have.

So in that spirit, here are nine of my favorite {Big and Small} moments of 2015:

Adopting Dobby

Starting this blog

Growing deeper in my walk with Christ with the support of an amazing church family

Taking time to be creative

Exploring Mt. Rushmore, Chicago, Orlando, Sacramento, Yosemite, Sonoma Valley, San Francisco, Carmel by the Sea, the Grand Canyon, Durango, Vegas (multiple times!), Colorado Springs, New Mexico and everywhere in between together with Dan

Playing on a softball league for the first time - reeeeeeally got me out of my comfort zone, but was so rewarding

Learning to kayak

Celebrating big milestones with family

Exploring new recipes (and sometimes failing, but Dan still was a trooper and ate it!)


Since this is the time of year to both reflect on the year past and look forward to the year ahead, I will have some VERY special news in my post on Wednesday. Come on back to find out what 2016 has in store for the Barrios!


However, since this post was somewhat inspired by #2015bestnine, here is my best nine from Instagram this year:




Each one of these moments is so special to me and I'm glad you all could share in it too! Be sure to follow me on the "best of 2016" journey as well! ;)


I appreciate each and every one of you for following along and doing life with me.
