January - Our roommate of almost a year moved out, but it didn't mean that our home was empty! We had many days of food and friends filling our home - something that we both love very much!
February - Foot pain came back, breaking whatever hopes of "back to exercising!" 2016 may have offered. Good thing I don't really believe too much in resolutions!
March - Always one of my favorite months! Spring break, birthday, nice(r) weather, Easter! This year was no exception! J was out of town shooting a beautiful destination wedding but my bffs rallied around me for dinner, surprise chocolate cake, and lunch on the Square. My foot somewhat got itself together and I began to get back into my yoga practice. We took advantage of the nice weather to hang out with friends, and when weather was rainy, desserts and cocktails! We also got to add some of the most beautiful paintings to our home, thanks to our talented friends!
April - Lots of driving in April! We drove to Houston to spend time with family, I drove to Austin to see the Cobb family, we enjoyed a visit from Kevin (from California on his way to Spain) and we discovered Whiskey Hollow Distillery. I drove to Dallas to beg for tickets to see Penny and Sparrow, I got it and they were definitely one of the Top 5 moments of 2016! :)
May - Poor Maya broke her other knee due to another squirrel-chasing incident. Unfortunately, she was one of the one-in-a-million cases whose bone broke after the surgery, so her recovery process was much more arduous than anticipated.
June - Ahh, summer. Time to relax, eat berries, and catch up with friends I haven't seen in a while. We sold our first car we ever bought together, my friend had a baby, we had some fun outdoor dates, and of course there was time at the pool. The best summer moment came from my first tattoo -- something I had been hoping for for 8 years! Another Top 5 moment right here!
July - brought much of the same summer love as well as the beginning of our Mexico vacation, to Mexico City and Tequisquiapan. We went to several vineyards, did some tours and learned about how they made the wine, and we even got to squish grapes with our feet! Another Top 5 moment for sure!
August - Another baby born to the framily, another school year began, another year of watching the Olympics, and after a summer of treatment, my foot was finally almost healed!
September - A stress fracture in my foot didn't slow me down on our fantastic beach vacation! We celebrated Mexican Independence Day, napped and rested, drank and ate to our all-inclusive hearts content and woke up early to swim with the fish. Of course, another Top 5 moment! My heart comes alive when I'm at the beach - we love you Cancun!
October - Brought the best moment of the year - we're pregnant! And the hardest month so far - first trimester drama! There was not much fun happening, not much socialization, and a whole lotta vomit. We went to Houston to tell the family and that was fantastic.
November - A very very hard month. I won't make you cry again with the details but we had to put our sweet pup down, on Js birthday. More first trimester drama, I lost a lot of weight because I couldn't eat anything. We got to hear the heartbeat for the first time, which is a speechless moment. We also got to have a little getaway to San Antonio, which we love!
December - Finally getting out of the first trimester, little one is growing and so is my belly! I got to see Brian Regan in Houston, and family came up for Christmas to start some new traditions.
Looking back on the year when a lot of bad things happened in the world, a lot of good happened in our little microcosm. And God is always good. We know that next year is going to be VEEEEERY eventful and very different - so we're enjoying these travels, date nights, and restful days right now while we can!
