2015 holy shit

This year. Whoa. Whoa, whoa, whoa. 

Seriously. Insane. 

I swear Michael and I decided to find a list of stressful life events and pick a handful. End of December last year was when M was officially done at MS, then pregnancy, then new job, then car accident, then home buying and then remodeling and then moving.  All on top of the demanding toddler that lives with us who we've been busting ass to keep sane (as is possible for a two year old), feeling secure and loved.  

it is actually too much to process for me right now. I'm not sure we've officially come out of it unscathed. We are tired and still have so much work to do. Plus I feel fat and ugly and generally gross. 

But the reward of hanging with our little M is pretty fantastic. We are starting to feel like this house is a home and somewhere we can grow. Andrew is flourishing. We are so lucky and as much as 2015 tested us, can we begrudge anything? 

January 2015
(Absolutely picked this picture to see my old body...what do they say? I wish I was a fat as the first time I thought I was fat)

March- best trip ever!
Sleep away camp first trimester- kinda brutal. Makes me sympathize further with the girl in my cheer squad who was secretly pregnant. Cheer camp must've sucked!

June- early summer was awesome. 
August. I love two! He is NUTS but it is such talkative, creative, loving and smart nuttiness. I just love it. 

We bought a house. The home buying and selling process and remodeling pushed M and me really hard. So many decisions that needed to be made with not enough data. 
Pumpkins improved everything. 
Felt full of stress and packing and being very pregnant. 
December - where to even begin?

What a wonderful, beautiful, happy-filled year! I hope 2016 is full of similarly awesome things and significantly fewer stressful ones. :)
