Last year I wrote that 2013 was a "big, big year" for us. 2014 was an even bigger year, starting with a pregnancy and ending with the arrival of our sweet Connor! We also squeezed in some traveling, great times with family and friends, and a few house updates!
2014 marked 4 years of marriage, 11 years since Jeff and I first met, 25 years of Katie, 27 years of Jeff, and fifteen days of Connor. :)
Here's a look back at our 2014 highlights!

It was a busy month, with a bachelorette party for my sweet friend Pilar, a bridal shower for my sister-in-law-to-be, and a wedding for another of my cousins!
We took a trip to Lake Murray, South Carolina to stay at Jeff's parents' new lakehouse, and we spent a night in Savannah, Georgia as well.
