Happy New Year! Just checking in real quick to reflect a bit on one year ending and another one beginning. I know that if I don’t jot down some thoughts now, I’ll forget I even had them! 2016 was a huge year of firsts which required a lot of adjustment. We moved into our first… Continue reading Cheers to 2017!
It’s hard to believe that this week marks one year since we moved into our first house. We started the building process in May 2015 and moved in at the very end of the year.

And that.… Continue reading Meow Monday: Thankful
Last week I started my maternity leave at work, and the big B Day is almost here!
