Eeeek! I thought 2015 went by fast and then 2016 happened. Sheesh. Last year was just as chaotic, busy and full of change as the last, and whatya know? We survived. We played in the snow, baby-mooned in Charleston, celebrated Mikey's last year in his twenties, welcomed Ezra (our littlest arrow), worked on our white house a lot, ran races, celebrated weddings and babies, mourned with friends overs losses, vacationed with family, (I) tromped around RI on our girls trip, celebrated birthdays and our lucky number 7, we drank in the holidays with our boys and celebrated my 30th birthday as we waved goodbye to the year.
I mentioned last year that Mike and I took time to reflect on things that we loved about the year, things that we did well, things that needed improvement and what we wanted for the next year. This year that conversation has been a little more choppy - in between chasing kiddos, bed time, traveling to families houses for showers and laundry (we still have no hot water), and the daily humdrum of life in the Martin household. We haven't been able to settle on a word to represent this new year yet. Mainly because everything I've come up with so far has been uninspiring. So, here's to hoping for a few quiet minutes with Mikey to really think about this year and what we want it to look like. We already have big plans for travel and change, growth and new ventures.
