2015 | home

My word for 2015 was home, and I think that the year encompassed that word perfectly. 2015 was a year spent building our home, pouring our hearts into making the walls that we built uniquely ours. It meant finally making roots for us here in this little town we've lived in the past six years and creating a space to raise our family, create our memories, and continue to grow.

In January we moved into our newly built home. We had spent countless hours and long nights finishing things, making decisions and preparing to move and on the night of January 11th we finally did. I woke up on my 28th birthday for the first time in our new home and it was amazing. We finally took a deep breath and realized, we did it. Our dream was finally a reality.  Not long after that, on one very snowy day, I took a pregnancy test and we found out we were adding to our family with another sweet baby. John and Landon were outside playing and I literally ran out there with tears in my eyes to show John our positive test. She was such an answered prayer.

Our year was highlighted with a few trips to the beach- some of our favorites, Oak Island, Ocracoke, and Nags Head. Landon developed a new love for boogie boarding, wave jumping, and the ocean in general. We learned we were expecting a baby girl and began preparing for all the pink to come into our house!

And finally in November, we welcomed sweet Avery into our world and now we can't imagine life without her. She has brought such joy to our home and seeing Landon love on her is one of the most beautiful things.

                                                                                                                                                             2015 was a year of great blessings and I am incredibly thankful for everything it brought us. We are so looking forward to the rest of 2016, our first year as a family of four- and making the most memories we can together. It might not hold any milestones, but it will surely be full of sweet sweet family time. And I can't imagine anything more perfect.
