-Our short but fun trip to Phoenix, Arizona to watch my Uncle Andy and Aunt Christina get married.
-The birth of our nephew, Nehemiah Duncan. He is SO cute!!
-Watching Elliana's unique relationship with each of her cousins. She loves all of them.
-Watching my mom come full circle, and eventually recover completely from her Guillain-Barre syndrome that hit her last year around the holidays.
