The older I get the faster the years seem to pass by me.
As cliche as it is to say this....it seems like only yesterday I was saying goodbye to 2015.
2016 has been good to Andrew and me.
It's been a year of healing, growth, and of finding contentment in our wait.
I thought it would be fun to look back at some of my favorite memories from each month in 2016.
JANUARY...My favorite thing about January is always celebrating our anniversary. This year we celebrated with mani/pedis and it could not have been more perfect.
Visiting the trumpeter swans is always a January favorite. This year we got to share the experience with my parents.
FEBRUARY... Sleepovers with my favorite twins is always my favorite.
We enjoyed a weekend in Branson filled with shopping and golfing.
And I said goodbye to braces. Straight teeth are definitely a favorite.
MARCH...My favorite thing about March is our family competition for March Madness. One of these days I'm going to win it all! Maybe 2017 will be my year.
APRIL... April brings with it Andrew's birthday and the Masters. Our Masters' Porch party/Andrew and Cody's birthday celebration is easily my favorite April memory.
MAY...May was a good month. We made the decision to pursue IUI...maybe 2017 will be the year we actually get to do an IUI.
We spent a fun weekend in Memphis where I got to see one of my favorite singers in concert.
And we celebrated Mikey and Ellie's first birthday.
Our Americana Porch Party is always a favorite...
JUNE...Aww..summer break...always a favorite.
Lots of time on the lake to eat and soak up the sun.
Time with these three is always a favorite of mine.
JULY...Our week long getaway to the Carolinas was our favorite for this month.
That apple pie ice cream in a waffle cone was Andrew's favorite. He is still talking about it.
Enjoying a few days with some of our favorite people.
AUGUST...Back to school.
This is my favorite area in my classroom.
My favorite flavor of shake, salted caramel, made a come back for 1/2 price shakes.
SEPTEMBER...We celebrated my birthday with two of my very favorite things - Gus's fried chicken and Adam Levine.
Loved my Daddy/Daughter movie date to see Greater which quickly became one of my favorite movies.
OCTOBER...Hosting a family movie night, lunch cruise, and climbing Sugarloaf was a ton of fun.
NOVEMBER...We celebrated Thanksgiving with our families.
And had a fun photoshoot. This is one of my favorite pictures from our session.
DECEMBER...Oh my! I think everything about December is my favorite.
A weekend with my babies so we could do our annual Christmas craft.
An amazing winter vacation.
Celebrating Christmas with our families.
