I've had so much fun looking at everyone's 2013 highlight reel videos on Instagram (see mine HERE) that I thought it'd be fun to put together a post of some of my favorite non-iPhone photos from 2013. Turns out I have hundreds more than I thought, so I'm splitting this up between two posts so as to not crash my computer with the excessive amount of cuteness going on. It's hard to believe that Mac was this little, just earlier this year. It sure does go fast (this is where I get all hormonal and teary). Oh, what a wonderful year this has been. Difficult, exhausting, emotional and challenging, but absolutely WONDERFUL too. I've learned so much this year about myself and about the mother and wife I want to be. I hope I leave this year with a little more patience, understanding, empathy and love that I came into it with. The days have been long, but the year has flown by. I'm looking forward to 2014, but I'll always have a special place in my heart for 2013, our first full year of being parents. What a wonderful year it was.
