It has been a year of firsts, all in quick succession. We bought our first house,
had our first beautiful baby girl Eleanor;
not only did Brian become a dad, but he started his first official job as a lawyer;
I caved and let Brian bring home Rowdy, our first (and only) dog;
I planted my first garden which is struggling mightily to survive,
And I watched my first flowers bloom in my very own front yard.
It's been a whirlwind year so far, but we feel incredibly blessed for all the wonderful firsts this year.
