Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016

Goodbye, 2015. 

Goodbye to a year I never saw coming.

Goodbye to the last year of being a party of two.

Goodbye to classes and studying and tests.

Goodbye to interview adventuring and trying to picture ourselves living new places.

Goodbye to being morning sickness that pretty much lasted my whole pregnancy. Some people rave on and on about how much they love being pregnant...I will not miss it one bit. I'm ready to meet this guy!

Goodbye to a year of so much love and adventure.

Goodbye to a year of surprises, of growing, of exploring, of learning.

Goodbye, 2015. It's been a hell of a ride. 

Hello, 2016.  

Hello to a year of the biggest changes of our lives.

Hello to finding out what new place we will be calling home.

Hello to our family growing, and to a new little guy joining the tribe.

Hello to learning how to be a mom. To making it work.

Hello to Christopher becoming a doctor. To all of that hard work paying off.

Hello to new adventures, new places, and new dreams.

Hello to a year I never thought I'd be saying hello to. To a year brimming with excitement and potential. To a year that promises to make my heart grow more full of love than ever before.

Hello, 2016. I have a feeling you're going to be the best one yet.

What are you saying hello and goodbye to as we close out another year?
