Hello 2017!

on January 15, 2017

A new year has come and gone.  2016 was full of surprises and lots of memories were made. With each passing day Linc and Griff grow more into themselves.  Since, I have Hamilton on the brain; the phrase “How lucky we are to be alive right now” is reverberating in my head.  One of my core beliefs is that the happiest memories and moments really accumulate from the stuff that we experience daily.  We sometimes overlook these “little” moments and cling to the “big” things – vacations, holidays, etc.  Moments like: Linc helping with his laundry and telling me his plans for each article of clothing as we put it into the wash.  Or Griff throwing the unicorn behind the changing table and exclaiming: “oh no!”.   Me waking up covered in children.  These moments don’t last forever and they can easily be forgotten as time passes but they contribute so much to our daily happiness.  To paraphrase Hamilton, how lucky we are to have each other right now. Here is a peek at some of the memories we made this year:
