2019 in Review

I love looking back at the year and reminiscing what happened in our family. It is always crazy to me how fast the time really does go by. One of my favorite bloggers shared this quote and I loved it so much, "You must not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful- or where you always wanted to be. You will be grateful that things didn't work out the way you once wanted them to."-Brianna Wiest

I'm so thankful for the adventures we had in 2019, the laughs, the baby snuggles, the time spent with family...I know that life is short and things can change so quickly. Who knows what 2020 holds?
