2014: A Year to Remember

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

2014, you've been so good to us. Actually, "good" doesn't even begin to describe it. I'm having trouble finding the right word because I can only think about how grateful and blessed we feel for the amazing moments we were fortunate to experience this year.

Like any year there have been some tough times, but 2014 makes it hard to imagine how next year could possibly be any better. And yet, it most definitely will be. Things are about to get a whole lot more crazy, that's for sure!

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary in Europe

Rome (Part 1 + Part 2). Siena. Florence. Venice. Paris (Part 1 + Part 2).

The trip of a lifetime is the only way to describe our European adventure. It was our first trip together across the pond and spending that time with my husband before we started a family was absolutely everything we hoped it would be. If you're considering a trip like this next year, don't think... just book!

We made some truly amazing friends thanks to this little blog


Blogger Night at Moon + Lola

I was 20 weeks here, back when I thought I had a bump. Boy was I wrong!

We vacationed, spent time with family, and played tourist in our own city

Florida. Pennsylvania. Charleston. Chicago.

Asheville.
We made a baby

Coming February 2015...

Found out he is most definitely a boy and showered him with love

It's a Boy. Baby Shower.

We also purchased a new SUV (read: mama + baby mobile) on a whim before looking at any other options. Mostly because mama was tired and hungry and just wanted to get out of there. Not really... but kind of.

These are just the highlights, they don't even begin to touch the seemingly insignificant moments from this year where I put down my camera and soaked in every second of it.  

I don't have resolutions for 2015. Lord knows I will struggle just to keep my head on straight once this babe makes his appearance! If I can manage a shower and not smell like spit up for a half a second a day, I'll take that over anything else. (It's all about low expectations, right?)

And I couldn't talk about being grateful without thanking those of you who follow along. It's truly amazing how this "blogosphere" has become more than just a creative outlet for me, but a place where I've met so many wonderful, supportive people like you! Thanks for being there, friends :)

Wishing you all a very fun, festive, and safe New Year's Eve!
