Memories, Dreams, Reflections 2015

I know I have primarily posted photos for the past year, and very minimal in the way of more in-depth content. Just seems to be where I’m at right now. So, enjoy our year-in-review in photos, with just a few tiny little comments thrown in.

Winter Wonderland

I really don’t know if I would call it a “wonderland” per se, but…. we did have a ton of snow in the early part of last year. So much so that I would be fine if we kept our totals this year to a minimum.

To be clear, I don’t really mind the snow. I think it’s pretty, and really it’s just a part of living in New England. What I didn’t like about last year was the absolutely horrible job the city (which we pay good money to) did with keeping the roads clear. I mean, they barely even tried.

That, and it lasted a solid eight weeks.

FAMILY

My side of the family as of January last year. Since then: we haven’t added anyone not pictured, but we did  have a wedding (Simon and Yasie – in the back holding baby Z.) and we’ll be adding another come March. Other than that all the kids have just gotten bigger.
