The last day of 2017, I still cannot believe it! 2017 had quite a few beautiful memories for me that I wanted to highlight below. Thank you again to everyone for following along on this journey with me! I hope you enjoy and cheers to a happy and healthy 2018!!
Mother’s Day. Ava and I dressed up in matching pink tulle outfits! This was so special and the day was beyond beautiful. Everyone was commenting on how cute we were dressed alike at the restaurant we went to.
Ava becoming a little fashionista! This past year Ava has absolutely fallen in love with my dressing room and playing with all things girly!
Easter weekend. Jesus has risen. The weather finally was turning a corner and a little bunny visited our home and left some treats!
Spent my dad’s birthday down with the cherry blossoms. What a magical time of the year.
Taking walks in the park and handing out flowers. This photo melts my heart. Ava lovesss flowers. She’ll go pick them and then hand them out or just continue to smell them haha.
Trips to Knoebels. This year Ava actually rode some rides. A fun time for all! That smile.
Spending my 29th birthday at the JFK 100 birthday celebration. This was a BIG one for me. JFK and I share the same birthday, which is beyond cool. Ava also has Obama’s birthday! The cake was sooooo good.
Our annual trip to Cape Cod was a memorable one since it was Ava’s first visit!
Getting to ride on Thomas the Tank. This was amazingly cool. Thomas looks absolutely real! I was blown away. We also got to visit with our family while we were there. They’re the best, I love you guys!
The dedication of the JFK statue in Pittston, PA. My shirt was a hit!
Our last year enjoying all the fun Belle brought to our lives.
Ava’s first time to the Luzerne County Fair. She loved this tractor and was pretty good at working it too!
My little shutter bug. She goes to grab my camera all the time now. Maybe she’ll love photography too someday.
Halloween! Ava dressed up as Peppa Pig. All of the little kids loved her costume. I kept hearing, mommy mommy, there’s Peppa Pig!
Ava and I on a photo shoot. This was one of my favorites with her. We dressed in matching colors and went to the park. We always have a blast on location!
Watching the night sky and the space crafts that zoom up above.
Valley Forge. My favorite spot in PA, especially in the fall. The word spectacular comes to mind when describing the foliage there.
Matchy matchy. We’re a family that likes to match together haha.
Christmas! Yay! The most wonderful time of the year. We packed so much into this Christmas season between decorating, singing carols, baking cookies, light rides, reading Christmas stories, watching Christmas movies, catching snow flakes on our tongues, going to tree lightings, visiting with family and friends....the list goes on! My favorite part of Christmas is actually going to church on Christmas Eve and singing Silent Night by candle lite.
