I've been meaning to start blogging again, but didn't have a lot of inspiration. Until now that is. I'm hoping to get back in a routine, if nothing else to look back and remember moments through this journey. I love looking back at my wedding posts and know I will want to do the same for baby. Although, if I'm being honest there isn't much so far I care to remember. In fact, I really hope to forget all of the nausea, vomiting and exhaustion. For all of you that promised me that once I hit the second trimester I would feel amazing - you lied. Two weeks in and no end in sight. In fact, so far in my second trimester I've gotten sick at McLane Stadium and in front of City Hall. Just to name a few. It is true what they say though - it's all worth it and we're amazed at this little miracle.

So, here's to less puking and more frequent blogging in the coming weeks and months.

2013 was not my favorite year. In fact, I'm pretty stoked it's over. To be fair, it never really stood a chance compared to 2012, the best year (so far) of my life. At any rate, J and I are ready for the new year and all of the excitement that brings. (i.e., lots of traveling and NO moving ;)

And because 2013 wasn't all bad, here's a look at some of my favorite moments.
