I love when the end of the year rolls around and I can look back over the entire year in pictures. Making a post with some of the highlights (and bloopers, of which we have a few!) is entertaining…and tough work since we take pictures daily! But I’ve spent the last hour sifting through all the goodies and have compiled them here for your quick glance at our 2017.
And here when we rang in last New Years Eve I thought we had a quiet year ahead of us!!! How foolish of me!
