This is Us; 2018 Review and What to look Forward to in 2019

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

And just like that another year has come and gone.  It is so true that time seems to go by so much quicker when you have kids and we brought TWO more home in 2018.  What an incredible and bittersweet year it was for our family.

In early January we found out we were expecting.  We were excited and scared to add another little one to the family, only to find out that we were actually adding two.  It was one of the many memories from the year that I will never forget.  We didn't announce until March and then had a fun gender reveal party to find out they were both girls!

The first half of our year was very busy.  We got to partner with ZooTampa, Disney on Ice, Marvel Universe Live and so much more.  We went honeybell picking for the first time, we went to Busch Gardens (a lot) and had a lot of play dates and fun with our friends in Florida.  Seriously, way too many to mention it all here ;)

I enjoyed another year of MOPs and continued Bible study with a wonderful group of women. I met new bloggers and grew my blog.  I also got into photography more last year, photographing some parties for friends, a close friend's newborn and even a Mommy and Me photo shoot!  I even had the chance to get away on a girl's trip with some great friends.

My husband and I enjoyed 2 years of marriage and probable one of my favorite moments of being a mom was taking our girls to Disney World for the first time.  Magical is an understatement of what that weekend was like for us....and exhausting since I was in my third trimester.

We found out that we would be moving to Indiana over the Summer for my husband's job.  It was something that we asked for since we wanted to be closer to family when the twins arrived.  It was hard to say goodbye to Florida and the people that had made it so wonderful for us.

We officially bought our new home in late July and waited patiently for our twins to arrive.  We spent most of August adjusting to our new place, getting moved in and enjoying the last few days of being a family of four.

Our twins arrived mid-September and things have been pretty crazy since then.  If you have been following us for a while then you know what I'm talking about.  Also, it's mid-January and I'm posting for the first time in over a month.  As much as I enjoy this outlet and I plan to start writing consistently again, I have enjoyed my new journey as a mom of four and twins much more right now.  

I can't thank you all enough for the love and support we have been shown and continue to see.  Thank you all for continuing to follow our lives and this little space of ours.

I plan to spend 2019 adjusting to our new normal with four kids, sharing a lot about motherhood (everything has changed for me), real life moments and all the fun adventuring in our new state of Indiana!
