Farewell 2015

That is technically a photo from the last hours of 2014, but whatever.

This year, y'all! What a ride. Easily the craziest year of our life. SO many changes. But still, I think it's been the best. There were some rough moments, but overall as usual life just gets better and better. Even if it is full of chaos.

This was obviously the year of being pregnant. I spent the majority of it pregnant and when I put this together I expected to find kind of a dull year, but we still did SO MUCH. We had so much fun this year, preggo or not. Plus, we managed to cram a lot of action into the not preggo months.

So here's the run down. We worked a lot, played a lot, explored a lot, ran a lot, and I sewed a lot (the year of Disney Princess dresses!). After half a year of trying I got pregnant (!), BRENDON GRADUATED PHARMACY SCHOOL, I quit my coffee queen job, we said farewell to Austin and moved to Temple, Brendon started his residency, and then decided to do another year of residency. On New Years Day we (Brendon) drove through a winter storm at night to get us home from skiing in New Mexico, we flew three times (big deal for us, since we hadn't been on a plane since our honeymoon), went on one giant road trip, lots of little road trips, and most of this was while preggo. We ran five races that I can remember, one of which was the Austin Half Marathon we'd trained over a year for, and two of which I was pregnant. Plus lots of other little adventures wherever we could squeeze them in. We have had a hell of a year. It's been a reeeeeally good one.

So lets get on with the photos! Lets watch me gain a million pounds over a year. Going from the best shape in your life to extra pregnant, and seeing it documented, is a blow for the ego let me tell you.

Had to sneak one of baby girl in there somewhere.

Such a good year! Thanking my lucky stars for this wonderful life we've got and all the good folks in it. Obviously 2016 will be one for the books as well, our first year as parents (AHHHH). I'm looking forward to this next year, more than I've ever looked forward to a new year. Not surprisingly. Not only do we get to finally meet the Seahorse, but life will just be all new! Nothing will be the same! And I will be able to wear regular clothes again! Haha. But seriously, I am so excited for 2016. I know it wont be an easy year, but I think it will be a great one.

And I leave you with mushyness, because always and forever, this boy is the reason I spend most of my life over the moon in happiness.

Thank you for a wonderful year, Brendon. Thank you for everything you do for our little family and for being the weirdest and most fun person I've ever known. Can't wait to kill 2016 with you and our offspring.

See ya soon, 2016! And if you want to see younger Hogans, here is Farewell 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2011.
