2018 - A Year in Review

My goal in life is to look back on each year and feel a rush of joy and happiness when I sift through the pictures and memories from the year.  2018 was certainly that year for our family.  For obvious reasons, as we welcomed Emily to our family but also because my kids are at this truly wholesome age where EVERYTHING is an adventure and the smallest things bring the most excitement.

So I spent my morning scrolling through the pictures, and reliving the moments.  Here is our year in review.

Warning... LOADS of pictures ahead.

Our big girl turned 4.

We bought a van.

I turned 28 and spent the morning with this sassy girl.

We took the girls bowling for the first time.
