What kind of blogger would I be if I didn't do a year in review post? I didn't plan on doing one until finding the following piece of paper in our 2013 memory jar. This has been the best year of our lives with the birth of Crew. This year brought blessing after blessing and I have loved looking back and reflecting on it.
Will and I started a new tradition of a memory jar with writing things on little pieces of paper throughout the year and then reading it the following New Year's Day. I'm so glad we chose to start this when we did!
We spent a lot of time together riding. We haven't done much of this since last January because of being pregnant.
I shared how we told our families about our big news
We celebrated Will's 25th birthday with dinner at Carrabba's
We celebrated 3 years of marriage by announcing our pregnancy on our anniversary
