Bye 2016! Hello 2017!


A cocktail for him, a mocktail for me.
Enjoying date night to celebrate the end of the year, our 12th dating anniversary, and Baby H arriving in June! Cheers!!!


Every year my husband and I review ‘The Best of’ at the end of the year.

We all know 2016 was a dumpster fire of a year, so I don’t need to dwell on the things that went badly to horrible wrong… celebrity deaths, US and international terrorist attacks, accidents and natural disasters, and Trump!

We focus on the things that brought us happiness from dinners out, vacations, funny moments, etc.

While enjoying a dinner out to celebrate our 12th dating anniversary (1/2 to be exact) we recapped the year that was 2016.


We said good bye to Boston, home for 12+ years, where we met, where we graduated college together, where we bought a house, had Autumn, got our dogs, and made tons of memories.

Adding Brinkley to our family. Right before moving. Insanity but glad we didn’t think twice about getting our little derpy love muffin.

A great date night before leaving Boston at the Tip Tap Room where we had the best pork belly steamed buns. Dreamy.

The crazy awesomeness that was moving from Boston to the Tampa area. I flew with Autumn and our rabbit, Bunny, in mid Feb and Price drove down with the stinky dogs in mid March.

We sold our house. Above asking. A lot above asking.

Discovering how easy it is to get Taylor Ham at the grocery store here in Florida. It’s the little things in life.

Making wonderful friends down here. They have helped make this transition to the complete unknown a lot easier.

Celebrating our 1 year anniversary with a long weekend in Disney. It was a combined honeymoon and anniversary thing for us and it was so much fun. Except for a few queasy hours at Epcot. ha!

We started construction on our dream house.

Taking Autumn to Disney was an awesome day. She loved everything about it from meeting Ariel, riding dumbo, and suckering Price into a $$$ customized parasol with Cinderella’s castle on it. It was a long hot day but so worth every second of it.

We blew through the fall and right into winter with the warm weather, which I love.

Watching Autumn grow this past year has awesome too. She has such a fun personality and cracks us up, when not driving us crazy asking ‘why?’ 500x a day. Non stop talking and singing is only broken up when she is doing art projects. She is so fun!


Now we have a lot to look forward to in 2017!

We can’t wait to move into our house and then welcome our second child there.

I can’t wait for all the big things and the small awesome things that make day to day so much fun.
