Well, well, well, what can I say 2017, you’ve been quite a special year! I really can’t believe how fast this year flew by. Looking back on all these pictures makes me think of all the exciting things that happened this year. We have so many memories with friends and family filled with laughter. One thing Ben and I wanted to focus on this year was spending more time with friends and family after spending 2016 being new parents. I can happily say we definitely did just that. From celebrating milestone birthdays to seeing some of our best friends get married and engaged. We were able to travel with both friends and on our own and have Penny experience it all with us.
Ben and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary and kept our word about planning more date nights and spending more time just the two of us. This was also the year I started my blog and although I wish I were able to write more consistently, I am so happy I created this creative outlet for myself where I’ve been able to connect with so many amazing people. What started out as more food focused ended up being about bits and pieces of my every day life. This year was also filled with challenging parenting moments. Two is no joke! Ben and my communication was tested and I am so proud of how our relationship keeps growing and getting stronger both as partners. We decided to enroll Penny into Preschool this year which was a big step and one we are so happy we did.
Although it seems we sometimes have constant chaos around us and our house is never not messy or there are always dirty dishes in the sink, we are pretty grateful for the life we are blessed with. We are not sure what 2018 will bring but our intentions are to keep building memories and spending time with our loved one.
Happy almost New Year friends! Thank you so much for all your support this year and I CANNOT wait to see you guys in 2018!
