I want a hippopotamus for Christmas...

And I got one!
Introducing the Rourke family Hippo!!
 This hippo has been in the Rourke family for as long as I can remember...when we were kids we used to play with this guy and growing up he was always just there. I have no clue where this hippo came from
(I need to investigate!) 
 FINDINGS: My Grandma and Grandpa were friends with this guy who made these animal figurines and my grandpa decided he liked this hippo! It's definitely a good focal point/conversation starter for our home and are looking forward to many more years with our HIPPO!

Merry Christmas! LOVE JESSE & AMBER!

This year has been a great year! Lots of learning/growing/exciting times/fun & JOY… I am so blessed to be able to share it with my Love Jesse and lots of friends and family. 

I can't wait to see what the new year has in store! I love creating works of art for TYPOLOGIE & CO. and hope to do more of that this year, I love hanging out with {JESSE} and learning more about him each day and reading his amazing writings (guest writer for the blog coming soon!), I adore seeing my little nephew COLIN grow like a weed and learn, walking the mall with my beautiful sister while sipping peets is magical, and hanging out with my buddies is a hoot!
on another note, one thing I’ve learned this year is that Jesus wants the best for us and all we have to do is surrender to Him, if we do HE will order our steps and then no wrong decision can be made...JUST WALK!

Merry Christmas!

“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore: you are of more value than many sparrows.”
Luke 12:7
