Everyone is giving 2016 a failing grade.
Probably has a lot to do with the election from Hell, or the numerous amounts of celebrity deaths. Or maybe for personal reasons it was a difficult one. I know, I've had years like that (I'm looking at you, 2012).
But for our little family, it was a jam-packed year full of change, growth, scary unknowns and additions.
In March, we added to our little family by welcoming "DogCPK." She was a rescue from our local Animal Rescue Project. As you may tell from the picture, she is blind in her left eye, and therefore was "discounted" (ugh, can we just talk about how ridiculous that is. She's a dog, not a discounted tee shirt for sale, Jesus). We cannot imagine our life without this little ball of energy. She goes from 0-100 with 0 being snoring and snuggling on the couch and 100 being going bat crap crazy and running and jumping on everything and everyone because she loves them so much.
In April I started my blog with my first blog post. Who knew I would actually stick with it! And a few people read it, which is pretty cool :)
In June I turned....*whispers* thirty. That's right. I am an adult. Like, a super duper adult.
In September I got to see one of my favorite bands of all time in concert, in my city! Also got to see my roommate from my Freshman year of college.
Also in September, Breaky announced he was going freelance. This was the scary part for us. But exciting. I can deal with budgeting a little more stringently if it means he can pursue his dream. I am very proud of him, and things are just getting better.
We had a kick-ass Halloween party, again. Always a highlight of our year.
There is obviously a ton more, of which you can read back through my blog for an update of sorts. While 2016 for us was overall pretty good, we are looking forward to 2017. More blog posts, more adventures and more beginnings.
Happy New Year everyone!
