Year in Review

This was truly the most amazing year - ever!... like Taylor Swift style EVER.

A little look back....


Last New Year's Eve when the clock hit midnight we opened our gender reveal gifts and found out we were having a baby GIRL!

I shared our favorite brunch recipe and I shared my secret morning ritual of checking out the freshly painted nursery and looking at Little A's closet full of tiny clothes.


We got our crib, some nursery furniture, and I picked out my diaper bag.


We got to see Little A in 3D, I had my fabulous baby shower,  and threw our annual St. Patrick's Day party.


The surprise birth our of daughter Ashlynn Hazel, 5 weeks early, on April 18.


We had our family photos and newborn photos done and celebrated my first Mother's Day!


We celebrated Father's Day, made the switch to cloth diapers, and got Ashlynn's photos back.


I shared my favorite and first hand-me-down heirloom to A, upgraded to MacBook, and made some yummy homemade granola bars.


We took Ashlynn to beach (and my hometown) for the first to celebrate our 3rd Anniversary.


Ashlynn had her first babysitter (Mimi) and we threw a Very Hungry Caterpillar Sprinkle for a friend who was welcoming the first boy into our gang of girls!


We took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch, started A solids, and of course ended with Halloween.


We sold our home, celebrated Thanksgiving, and took A to the park instead of the store on Black Friday.


And ended the year with meeting Santa, moving out of our home, celebrating Hanukkah and Christmas at our InLaws, and taking a family trip to Longwood Gardens (recap still to come).

It's been an amazing year, and I can't wait to countdown to midnight - if I'm actually awake! to see what 30 has in store!


  1. Love the recap!!! So fun to see Ashlynn grow over the year...and of course I can't wait to see what this next year brings your family!! xo

  2. What a year! We had the 'new baby and a big move' thing going on here, too---whew! Happy New Year!
