Farewell, 2012!

Tonight we will be saying farewell to the most amazing year of our lives so far & toasting to what 2013 may bring!

It's hard to believe that this was just one year ago... the best is yet to come was definitely an understatement! :) This year was one for the books... we have lots of amazing moments to highlight!

In February, we welcomed our sweet little Harper Eve Garvin into the world. This is one of the first pictures ever taken of her & I often see this exact newborn face on her today.

We celebrated Harper's first holiday, which I of course couldn't have been more excited about!

We watched this sweet newborn turn into a baby right in front of our very eyes.

We purchased our first home...
...and attempted our very first DIY home renovation.


We spent lots of time soaking up the sun (and rocking cowboy hats) at the pool!

(sidenote: he isn't wearing nailpolish, he jammed his thumb in a car door. another highlight of 2012)

Traveled all the way to Iowa to celebrate my brother's wedding.


Enjoyed our first football season as a family of three.

Did some yoga...


...and some trick or treating!


Made our house a home...


...and made our cribs into teething toys.

Started a very early Starbucks addiction.


Rocked lots of festive Christmas attire.

Played in the snow for the first time.


And had an amazing first Christmas!


2012 had so many incredible moments, it's hard to sum them all up in one post. We look forward to all the fun that will be had in 2013... more festive outfits, more chalkboards & more holidays!



I am so excited to continue blogging, all thanks to your love & encouragement over the last year.  Let the champagne & resolutions flow... I wish you all the happiest New Year's Eve!!


CHEERS!
