2017 in 12 Photos


J A N U A R Y 


Looking back through the blog it seems that we were sick a lot in January, and that I was doing hygge before it was an Instagram sensation. I'm so proud of myself. Also, I can't believe Trixie was ever that small. She still stands on that stool between the sinks, only now her head towers way above that shelf and she can easily reach all of the faucets.

February is when winter seems most endless and we begin to drive each other crazy. Being cooped up with babies all winter is rough. I wrote this very sweet post reminding myself how great it can be with those babies.  P.s. I made those, the babies, and the sweaters.

Johnny had spring break. I think it snowed every day that week. So we made our way to the conservatory to pretend that it was spring. I also helped put on the CWBN Midwest Conference. It was a lot of work, and a lot of fun. 

A P R I L


I finished a sweater that I had been working on all winter, Alex and I finally figured out a prayer routine that works for us, Lent, Easter, and the daily grind of motherhood.

Johnny turned four,  He finished his first full year at his school for deaf and hard of hearing kids. We were thrilled with the progress he made in his speech during that year. And I closed my piano studio after teaching for ten years.

We did a big rearranging of rooms in our house, since I was no longer using one of our main level rooms as a teaching studio. We spent as much time outside as possible, and, not surprisingly, I did some more reflecting on motherhood.

Lots of family time and outside time. This summer marked the 10 year anniversary of when Alex and I started dating. I marked the occasion by writing about how we met

A U G U S T 


We took our annual trip to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe with friends. I turned 31 and did a lot of gardening. The only blogging I managed was this giant photo update. 

S E P T E M B E R


I made a lot of hats, Alex started his final rotation of PA school, and Johnny started school again, this year going five full days a week. The beginning of a new school year is so chaotic and exhausting, so I was doing some thinking about self-care.

Trixie turned two! I am realizing now, much to my shame, that I never did a birthday post for her! Nevertheless, she had a wonderful birthday, she got a baby doll who has come with her everywhere everyday since then. Trixie continues to be a our sweet and joyful girl. 

N O V E M B E R


November was hard and joyful month in our home. Alex's dad passed away after battling cancer. There was much sadness and grief, but we also had a lot of special time with Alex's family. We also found out I was pregnant with baby no. 3! I'm so grateful for God's timing with this baby. 

D E C E M B E R


Alex graduated from PA school, passed his boards, accepted a job, and then got the break we have been dreaming about for the last 2.5 years. The timing of this break couldn't have been better, as I was struck down with morning sickness. Alex has been doing everything around the house and for the kids, and taking extra good care of me. My morning sickness started to ease up a few days before Christmas, allowing me to enjoy this beautiful season even more. 

Happy New Year to you all! And thanks to Bobbi for hosting my favorite link up!
