2016 - Best of Nine

What a year 2016 was.
There were a lot of ups and just as many downs.
I started the year off by going back to my career and then leaving said career only a few months later to be at home with my family and pursue a business from this little blog of mine.
I learned a lot about myself and gained a confidence I've never had before.
I got to know and explore the new city our family moved to and finally feel like we've finally found our place to settle down.
I stepped outside my comfort zone numerous times and only good things came as a result!
{see that time I played model for a day}
I had the opportunity to meet and work with so many inspiring women {see here} and {here}

I said goodbye to my grandfather - which was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do.
 We started attending church and two of our children were baptized.
{our oldest will be baptized later this year}

I attended my first blogging conference. 
I spent a lot of time with one of my best friends and her four kids this summer.
I learned that it is NOT easy shopping with seven little ones - but it sure is fun.
Most importantly, I learned that there is no such thing as being a perfect mother or finding that perfect balance.
All we can do is love with all we have and that's really all that matters.
