Happy New Year’s Eve, friends! 2017 was a good year and we are certain that 2018 will be even better! We like to spend just a little time on NYE looking back at the year we are getting ready to leave behind. We’ll never say that it was all perfect (oh heavens…it was definitely not all perfect), but it was a great year. We are happy, we are alive, we are generally healthy, we have amazing friends, we have great jobs and we are SO CLOSE to moving into our new home. That’s definitely a good year. Enjoy the pics below that chronologically sum up our year from January 1 of 2017 through today, December 31st.

Thank you for following along today and all of 2017. Have a wonderful (and safe) New Year’s Eve and a beautiful start to 2018!
