This has definitely been the best year of my entire life! There were so many milestones that happened and I thought I would document them in a blog post:)

January: I started working from home full time. This was a dream of mine since college and after years of hard work I’m so happy it’s finally paid off as I can still pursue my dreams and be at home with Annabelle.

March: I got pregnant with Annabelle Rose! Watch how we found out here.

May: My Mom held a bridal shower for me and my bridesmaids at the cutest tea house in San Juan Capistrano.

Bachelorette party with my bridesmaids in San Diego!

July: Doug and I got married in Northern California on a beautiful vineyard.

We then traveled to Japan for two weeks and had the time of our lives! We’re already planning a trip to go back.

August: We found out we were having a baby girl!

October: We held a baby shower for Annabelle at my parents house with close friends and family.

December: Annabelle Rose Johnson was born!
