A LOOK BACK AT 2015

Happy 2016 loves! 

While 2015, was the hardest year of my life, I'm glad that we made it through! I'm looking forward to new adventures and especially baby girl coming in February. 

However, I wanted to take a minute to look back on this hard year and point out the positives. As they say, "It was the worst of times and the best of times." 

JANUARY

January brought us lots of museum days, some of the coldest NYC weather and lots of snow.

DECEMBER

Excited on Christmas morning! We learned the true meaning of friendship as we received gifts from Secret Santas and so many gave to Henry to where we'll be able to afford his leg braces. 

Yes, yes we were still blessed despite the hardest move, losing thousands of dollars, months sleeping on the floor, but most importantly-- we learned from our trials and grew stronger, as a family. :) 

Here's to 2016 being EVEN BETTER!
