2018 Highlights

I love this photo because it so accurately summarizes life with two toddlers. It’s crazy and chaotic, silly and fun, messy and definitely not picture perfect. But it also brings me more joy than I ever thought possible. This year brought a lot of change for all of us. Graduation, another move, lots of time with family, big development leaps for Lawson and Sybil that stretched us as parents.

Before fully shifting into the new year, I took a look back at my 2018 highlights. 2018, you were a good one.
