This year tested my will to stay sane.  It was amazing and full of family and friends, love,  and accomplishments,  but it was also exhausting.  I guess a big family will do that to you, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  We hosted so many parties and get-togethers this year, and our home is the happiest when it’s full.  I am thankful to be so blessed with an amazing family, smart, healthy kids, and a supportive, loving husband.  Here’s to having an even better 2014!  

Best wishes to you and yours an may your year be filled with blessings, family, laughter, and love!
