Blogging: Year Three—Highlights of 2013

2014 January 8
by Becky

While I technically launched my blog in July of 2009 with the intent to share information about my pregnancy with only our family and close friends, things didn’t really take off until that December when Ethan was born.

What I’m saying is, I’ve been blogging for THREE years.

Celebrating these yearly milestones have been so far from my mind because, well, I’m exhausted after the holidays. By the time I remember another 365 days have passed it’s February and that just seems too late. But this year I somehow remembered and figured a photo oriented Year in Review would be in order? So here’s my favorite moments of 2013…
