Happy 2014 (almost)!
These last few months I’d taken a break from blogging to focus on family, but I’m happy to be coming back with a lot to share in the new year. 2013 was a busy year filled with some wonderful times and some difficult times, and looking back it’s hard to believe how much Violet has grown and how much our lives have changed moving to Portland and making some big adjustments in our lives. And I’m excited for all that 2014 has in store, mainly the birth of baby #2 in late spring (I’m pregnant!) and watching Violet grow and say new things.
Below are some of my most memorable moments from 2013.
Hope your 2014 is a great one!
