In no particular order here’s us taking some time to think back on some of the memories we made together this year. This year has been a good one. I think 2016 has been the or one of the best/ easiest years of my life. No major tragedy occurred and I wasn’t struggling through the stress of a high risk pregnancy. T.J has been a very easy baby allowing us to do a lot of different things even when he was really little.
I think a theme I see in our list of favorite memories is that we like to try new things together as a family. Even though traveling can be difficult with little ones, despite the hardships, those are the times that stick out in our minds as the most fun.
I have been very blessed!
