2016

2016 is over and I was super slack with writing. Slack may not even be the right word because what I really did was not write at all for about 8 months. Oops!

Not only did we get to travel to a bunch of new places we also learned we are EXPECTING! a little boy due in early March. That has been and will always be the highlight of 2016. I will dedicate quite a lot of blogs to this boy I assure you of that.

I have to say 2016 was mostly highlights there have been some not so shining moments too of course but the good has far outweighed the bad for this little family. I am so excited about what 2017 has in store for us and what new adventures it will bring.

Happy New Year to all of you. I am looking forward to blogging about travel, motherhood, marriage, life in general, and balancing it all. It is going to be one fun filled year that is for certain.
