Twenty-thirteen was a year like none other. For many reasons, mainly Oliver’s birth, we experienced all sorts of new things. Experiencing motherhood over this past year has been an amazing journey, so has settling in to Minnesota and it finally feeling like home. Starting new jobs and continuing to learn how to handle the climate have been a few of the adjustments we’ve been able to make, only solidifying our love for our family and each other. We’ve made and revived some real friendships, I turned the big 3-0 and we plan to purchase a home in 2014, the future is exciting and I’m grateful for where we are. I wish all of you a Happy New Year!
