2015. This is the 8th year JMO and I have done a yearly recap. JMO’s is on his blog jmo.me. Every year I feel grateful for all that has transpired the previous year. Every year I feel like a lot happened, this year is no different, it was a glorious year.


IMG_5008We had the best baby boy in the whole world on June 24, 2015. Holding Ander in my arms is the most satisfying thing I have ever done. The feelings of parenthood are hard to convey, he has brought us so much joy. I love watching JMO with him, both of their faces light up when they look at each other. It is incredible to watch our families with Ander too. He just brings out the best in everyone!

Yoga Teacher Certified

While living in Florida, I completed a 200 hour yoga teacher certification through Navarre Living Yoga. I loved this studio and these women. There were certain postures I couldn’t do while pregnant, but I think the amount of yoga I did during made for a pretty easy pregnancy.

Masters in Library Science

I’m so ready to have my own library. Cross your fingers some lady retires soon!

Bought a house & moved back to Texas

Our time in Florida was unforgettable. I miss the waves and our balcony and running my hand through the sand. We came back in early August, and ping ponged between both our parents house until the house was ready at the end of October. It took longer than we expected, sharing a room with our baby was challenging at times. But, it was nice to have dinner nightly with our families and have extra hands to help with our new guy.

Grandpa turned 90

Being able to have our 5 week old son attend my grandfather’s 90th birthday was amazing. If we’d been in Texas, we probably wouldn’t have made the trip. Grandpa’s 90 years, 5 kids, 15 grandkids, and 3 great grand children is something to marvel at. If only we all might be so lucky.

This year was amazing. Things have been good.
