Year In Review

Hard to believe where this year started out. We had a walking one year old who acted too old for her britches. We were renting a house. I was job searching and interviewing. Unsure of whether I'd land something in the design field or continue to practice law and open up a solo practice. 

A lot happened this year, good, bad, and ugly, but here are my favorites. 

We enjoyed our city and Isle of Hope with many strolls, but too few date nights. 

I made my first oyster mirror, and used lots of chalk paint. The console table, the bench, and the china cabinet were all victims to the paint brush this year. 

I went to Vegas for the first time! Soaking up the rays at Caesar's Palace. 

Finished several new paintings, all of which are now at Cohen's Retreat. 

Started my dream job as an interior designer. 

Then we found out we'd be having another baby... and soon after found out it's another girl! 

We bought our rental house....

And changed the lights....

Meanwhile, Evans continued to grow, and started talking in sentences, and "reading" her books...

I got bigger...

We started a bathroom demolition.....

And boy was it worth it! 

Again, Evans got bigger, and her personality got bigger, too. 

And again, I got bigger...

Then we had the house painted white, replaced the front door, and added coastal shutters. 

We also had a bunch of scary dead trees removed. 

We celebrated Halloween at the pumpkin patch! Evans went on her first hayride. 

We enjoyed the Isle of Hope Art & Music Festival! 

We enjoyed living near Tybee! 

We chose a name for baby girl, Mae Caroline! 

And we celebrated Daddy's birthday (and Mommy's, too). 

We hosted Halloween trick-or-treating at our house...

Evans was an 80's girl. 

Evans got a big girl bed and luckily the transition was a piece of cake! 

Made more progress in the bathroom...

Still working on this room today....

Hung another new light...

Updated the guest room and nursery. 

Celebrated Thanksgiving with this lil' indian girl...

Evans went on her second hayride! 

Hubs and I enjoyed a staycation babymoon in Savannah. 

We decorated the front yard for Christmas. 

Speaking of yard, Hubs and my dad built a new picket fence! It's almost ready for paint.

I did a coastal tree this year...

And I got bigger...

We celebrated another birthday- Evans turned 2! 

After her birthday, the following weekend she was a "star" in her school's Christmas play. 

Evans got her first big girl bike! 

Enjoyed a wonderful Christmas... 

We replaced the old kitchen cabinets and dishwasher... Merry Christmas to the grown ups. 

Overall, 2015 was a great year. Hard to believe 2016 will bring a new family member. 

Can't wait to see what else is in store. Happy New Year!
