2014 Year in Review

2014 was so good to our little family. It really has been my favorite year and will always be so special to me as it is the year I became a mother. I had a really hard time narrowing down this post, but here are a few (and by few I mean many) of my favorite memories:  photo 12146142556_f3652285b4_o_zps6cc9c49a.jpg photo 12145719283_b98bc2852c_o_zps8232d343.jpg
