2013: A Year in Review

2013 was the year of the baby as we welcomed Lucy Jane into our lives on September 29....which means I was pretty much pregnant for most of the year.  It's amazing how quickly our lives have changed (for the better) and I can't wait to see how much she grows and changes in 2014.  We've had some exciting few years (engaged in 2010, married in 2011, bought a house in 2012, had a baby in 2013) so hopefully this next year is a little bit more low-key.
