Auld Lang Syne 2013

Happy New Year everyone! 

We took it easy this year and spent it at home with family.

New Years 2013-001Ate good food….

New Years 2013

…played fun games, and welcomed the new year with some fabulous champagne {I only had a sip}. All in all, a fabulously cozy and wonderful farewell to 2012.

Of course, Nick was lucky enough to get a pre new year kiss from Tessa…


2012 was definitely an eventful one… Married my best friend and the love of my life! * Started a new job * Celebrated many wonderful weddings and welcomed two sisters-in-law to the family * Met and instantly fell in love with our little nephew, Braxton * Announced to everyone we are expecting our own little bundle in May!

I really can’t complain!

Fare well 2012, Bonjour 2013! This year is going to be wonderful. I can’t wait to live it!
