2017 Recap

Well I can’t believe that in a few days we will say goodbye to 2017! I feel like the year just started.

I thought it would be fun to do a quick recap of the year we have had.

January- We found out that Kyle made the promotion and that we would be moving to Kansas.
February- E and I spent Valentine's Day in Florida! With Kyle working so much it was nice to stay busy.
March- I submitted my thesis for grad school and officially graduated with my Masters in Psychology! It was such a huge relief to be done. 

April- We spent Easter in Florida. We were lucky that Kyle had a long weekend so we jumped at the chance to drive down and spent it with family. It was so fun experiencing E's 1st Easter.
May- My sister and I flew to Disneyland to run the pixie Dust Challenge! What an unforgettable experience that was. Running a 10k and half marathon back to back was no small feat.
We also spent Memorial Day in Florida and took E to the beach for the first time! Beach days with family were definitely one of my favorite things.
June- We said goodbye to Fort Polk and started a new adventure in Fort Leavenworth. 
July- I joined a workout group called Stroller Strong Moms and it became a huge part of my life and fitness journey. The friendships I’ve gained from it have been amazing. This photo is from one of my first classes.
August- Kyle and I were able to have a night out for his Commandant's Reception. It was nice to get the chance to meet his classmates and see where he spends his days.
We also took E to her first concert! It was a hit.
September- Family flew into town and together with friends we celebrated our precious E’s 1st Birthday! It was such a fun party and we were so thankful that family made the effort to be there.
October- I ran the Kansas City Half Marathon and PR’d my time by 15 minutes. It was an awesome feeling!
We also celebrated our first real Halloween with E! She carried her bucket around everywhere for every single event we went to. She was so happy.
November- Kyle and I ran our 100th race and it was pretty amazing! A huge milestone that we will never forget. 
I got to see Waitress live in Kansas City with friends.
We also kept our tradition of going to at least one tree lighting!
We also celebrated Thanksgiving with friends and it was really nice!

December- We were able to drive to Florida and spend a week with my family for Christmas. It was so fun spending that time together. Seeing E soak up all of the love and attention from everyone was the best. She was a happy girl especially getting to play with her cousins. We played games, ate lots of food, hung out, saw Christmas light, went shopping, and just enjoyed the time together! It was the best!
Needless to say it was a pretty awesome 2017 but we are so excited to see what 2018 has in store of us!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a very safe New Year!
