2015 Highlights - The Year of Harper

Thursday, December 17, 2015

As we come to the end of 2015, I wanted to look back at some of the highlights. The past few years I've broken my yearly highlight posts into a few different posts, but this year I decided just to showcase my favorite parts of the year. Basically what I'm saying is this new mama don't got time to drag it out. So here's some of my favorite happenings from the past year . . .

This was definitely a monumental year in our lives and basically the year of Harper. Starting with the day we found out we were pregnant and got the keys to our new home, the fact that it all happened on one day should have been a sign that the next year ahead was going to be a great one.

It's been exactly one year since On we finally got the keys to our brand new home on December 18th of last year! We'd been waiting months for this day. As soon as we got the text from our realtor, we jumped in the moving van (which was already loaded with our stuff) and headed right over to move in! (keep in mind this was also at 7 o'clock in the evening). We couldn't wait to officially move in and get settled! And just 48 hours after moving in our first box, we hosted 25 of our closest friends for my birthday!
Februrary 21st - I shared our best Christmas gift ever by announcing we were pregnant! I was already 12 weeks and we were both so excited to finally be able to share our news with everyone!
April 13th - We found out that our little one was a girl! We decided to wait and find out what we were having with close friends and family at a gender reveal party. No one except the Dr, Ultrasound Tech and party store worker knew what we were having. We were all so surprised to see pink confetti come out of that balloon and so excited to start buying everything girly!
May 28th - We took a few days off of work and headed to Vegas for our babymoon. We got upgraded to the most amazing suite at MGM and had an amazing time relaxing together for a few days!
June was all about baby - well actually this whole past year seems to mostly revolve around that, but in June anyways we took our maternity photos and I had my friends and family baby shower. Both me and Harper felt so much love this month and in the time leading up to her arrival! We definitely lucked out with some amazing people to love and support us!
On July 15th we celebrated our 5 year anniversary. I didn't necessarily picture our 5 year anniversary with me unable to drink a celebratory glass of wine or not doing much cause I was worn out from being nearly 9 months pregnant, but it was fun none the less. These first five years have flown by and I can't wait to see what the next 5 have in store!
August 11th was the best day of the year. It was the day Harper joined our family! And while this day is an absolute blur, I can't imagine my life without this day!
In October two of my aunts came to visit and to meet harper for the first time. We had a fun fall family weekend that included games, wine tasting, morning walks, yummy food and lots of baby snuggle time!
The holidays are so much fun with our family of three. I have always loved Christmas time and getting to decorate and celebrate my favorite time of year. This year we kicked off the holidays by picking out our tree and taking Harper to meet Santa! I know she isn't aware of too much this year, but I can't wait to experience it all for the years to come!

What a truly fun and amazing year it has been. I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for us. What were your favorite parts of 2015?
