2015: A Year in Review

2015 was a very good year for us!  Todd, Lucy, and I were able to take quite a few trips with family, did a few house renovations (with more in store for 2016), and enjoyed life with an active toddler. We're looking forward to what 2016 has in store for us and I'm sure we'll be just as busy as ever!

By the way, I can't believe how little Lucy looks at the beginning of 2015 and how much she has grown from a baby to a little girl.

A look back at 2015...
