Happy New Year and Hello 2017

I’m baaaaaaack!

I have to say that I have missed all of you terribly and I have missed being able to share my thoughts and stories in this little corner of the internet that I call my own. I have been MIA for a couple different reasons but mainly because my computer decided to completely die back at the beginning of December. I have gotten a replacement and so here I am!

2016 in Review

We started the year with a bang! Little Charlotte Autumn was born in January (and we are currently preparing for her first birthday party).

The spring was filled with new adventures and challenges that come with being a new mom and a young family (check out some of our adventures here, here and here).

July we had our first camping trip as a family and it was an adventure to say the least.

September was the start of my student-teacher experience and I have had to adjust to being a “working” mom and wife. This has been an adjustment to say the least but it has been something great for our family in the long run. I have to admit that I love being busy! Having family support to finish up my degree has been such a blessing.

The fall was a time of new adventure with our growing girl. We went trick or treating for Halloween and road tripped for Thanksgiving. We also moved to a bigger place in a new town.

Ending the year with her first Christmas has been a magical experience.

This was a year of firsts and a year of new challenges. 2016 was a year that we will never forget but it was also a year with a lot of challenges. Being a one income family with a baby is tough. Apartment living is tough. We have goals and aspirations that were out of reach this year but we definitely moved closer. 2017 will be an exciting year as well and I am looking forward to all that it will bring.

Cheers to 2017!

What were some of your best memories from 2016? What are you looking forward to in the coming year?

Love Always,
