We started off the year with a new addition to the family - and we can't believe our niece Mira is almost a year old already!
And to make us feel old, our oldest nephew graduated from college.
Mark sold his house - sad but really great too! Had to have one last party before we turned over the keys. Loved that bar he made so much! Hope they appreciate and love it too.
We went to New York for Uncle Leo's 95th birthday...
and had the BEST antipasto plate ever.
And of course there was lots and lots of wedding planning. Went to a ton of bridal shows to try out all the photo booths. Pro tip #1. Make sure you compare photo booths - the quality of the photos really varies.
A fabulous bridal shower kicked off the festivities.
|Hair, nails with the Mom's and lots of cake tasting|
No honeymoon pics yet because that won't happen until next year sometime ~ Mark got a new job (yay!) so we're still figuring out when and where to go.
The weekend after we got married was my reunion. I loved showing off my new hubby and he was quite the hit of the party.

I experienced my first coffee pour over - yum!
I participated in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap for the 3rd year.
and to Glow at the Botanical Garden - where we not only enjoyed the festive gingerbread houses and Christmas trees, we also got to see our wedding ceremony site blanked in snow. This event is a Must Do - it's so festive and fun and a great excuse to get out of the house when it's freezing outside.
|And did you notice something about this pic besides the crazy dog who hates posing?|
New hair for the New Year! Hello bangs - it's only been about 8 years since last saw each other.
