Another year down and so many memories made. I hope you are still stretching out the holiday vibes and spending these days relaxing and eating left over Christmas goodies.
It was a big year for us… David finished residency, went through the match process again, and we ended up in Birmingham, AL – the same town as my sister and closer to both of our families. I could not be more thankful for my health, family, friends, and of course, NILLA! I’m also so incredibly thankful for all of YOU who read this blog and follow along. You make doing this so fun and I love this little corner of the Internet. I’m hoping to make 2018 my best year yet and can’t wait to move into the New year with all of you!
Cheers to a great year and memories that we will cherish for all the years to come. Here are my favorite posts and moments of 2017…
