Merry Christmas 2015
My family and I are wishing you a very Merry Christmas! I hope that you’re spending it with your friends, family and loved ones!
This year has been such an incredible year in our family; we experienced lots of changes, milestones, and transitions, and I am so grateful for these two weeks of Christmas holiday where we can slow down and reflect a little bit on all that we had gone through this year.
Both Mike and I got new jobs (two even for me!) and relocated to a new city. We sold our beloved home in three weeks, looked hard for a new house for about six weeks in the new town before we finally decided to build a house instead (Crazy, right? We pushed back on this idea for a very long time, as you can see). We finally took the plunge and squeezed our two kids and St. Bernard Charlotte into a 3-bedroom, 2 bedroom apartment, with no fenced yard, with a dream of finally getting a home that we actually wanted, and needed, perfect just for our family. We packed away 90% of our belongings into a storage (hello,cooking utensils, where are you?), and jumped into this adventure with a hopeful heart.
We transitioned our kids to new schools. Our oldest started Kindergarten (and shortly after, lost not just one, or two teeth, but FOUR teeth!), and our two-year old started his Montessori pre-school. Time was moving at a pace that I could barely keep up with. In the midst of all of the chaos, we found out that we are expecting our third child, due in the spring (hello, morning sickness?). All of these changes were definitely not for the faint of heart. While we still feel very much blessed, we are excited and ready for 2016, and hope that you are too.
Much blessings to you and your loved ones this Christmas and all throughout next year!
