Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

As the year comes to an end I've been thinking about all the things that have happened in these last 365 days. This year has been one of HUGE life changes, tears, laughter, lots of miles on our car, and definitely a lot of love.

JANUARY
We started the year off with a 3,651 miles road trip to our new home in Washington. That was the most intense trip I have ever been on in my whole life. Poor Caleb drove the gigantic box truck all across the U.S.
Finally though we made it and settled into our cute little part of the world.

FEBRUARY
Our whole world changed though on January 31st when we discovered we were going to have a baby! After a year and a half of praying for little one it was happening!

MAY
And to make things sweeter, we were having a little girl!

JULY
The days between finding out we were expecting to July were mostly filled with endless days of nausea and vomiting. I barely left the bed, lived off of gatorade and pretzels, and lost 40+ lbs. It got so bad I ended up in the hospital in mid-July.

OCTOBER
Finally after a practically a whole year of preparing, we welcomed our sweet one into the world on October 10th, 2017. Labor was fast and easy, but unbelievable. To think the lord gave us this girl to love and watch grow. I couldn't believe this was my life.

NOVEMBER
 In November, both families came up to visit us and meet Isla. We hadn't seen them since last Christmas so it was a blessing to get a few days with them. I absolutely loved watching my parents with Isla. Too cute!

DECEMBER
Now here we are at the end of December. About to embark on a whole 'nother year of adventure and changes. I can't wait to share it with y'all again.
