Happy New year everyone! Unfortunately, I’m starting off today with the stomach flu. All credit for that goes to my tiny human godson because he had and or has a mild version (still love him though). We celebrated all yesterday in bed stuffing our faces full of good food, Netflix, and lots of tea. So fancy I know. So, what do I want to accomplish this year. Let’s see…hit 3,000 views on here (we made it to 2,000 last year), have a baby (yes I’m still going to say it until it happens), grow my business, and I guess just live happily with my tiny family. 2017 brought us a good year that’s for sure, but we did have our challenges. We celebrated 2 years of marriage, got Shatzie, celebrated our first Thanksgiving and Christmas in our new place, celebrated both Toby’s and Shatzie’s birthdays, went on vacation, moved (twice cause my parents house counts), started a new business, traveled home from vacation at 45mph (not fun), and so much more. I think our good outweighs the bad for sure, but there were some struggles I haven’t mentioned. Anyway, here’s to 2018, I hope it’s a good one for us, and for all of you as well. From my tiny family to yours, Happy New Year. Much love.
