best of 201612/30/2016
I think that we can all agree that in one aspect or another 2016 was a rough year. Both personally and publicly, I think that we could all use a fresh start in 2017. When I started to do a round-up of the best of 2016, I was planning on it to be post based, but quickly realized that neither me nor you need a reminder of some of my best posts of 2016. Maybe it's the pregnancy hormones (x2), but I keep coming back to the sheer fact that in between the muck and the mire, the best part of 2016 was these guys, as well as the continued connections and support that you guys provide to me and us as a family. It's often intimidating to open up your life to the outside world in such a public manner, but I am fortunate to say that you all have been gracious with your comments, generous with your time in you continued reading when I know we all are incredibly busy, and supportive throughout it all. And these guys, well, I am at a loss for words as to what I'd do without them in my life.
Happy 2017 from our family to yours. I hope that 2017 brings you more; your more joy than pain, more successes than failures, more hope than despair, and more love.
