I love the idea of recapping and looking back on awesome things and highlights in my life. So I’ve decided to do a review at the end of each year (Let’s see how that goes with 2 kids next January :p)
2017 was an awesome year for us, and it started out in tropical Hawaii!
We were on the island of Oahu, Hawaii for the entire month, our friends came to visit us, and Ryan and I both celebrated our 31st birthdays!
From airbnb-ing in Makaha, Ryan surfing some of his best waves, camping at Malaekehana, then settling in to our long term Airbnb on the North Shore…Getting used to Hawaii time and Isla’s 4am wake-ups.
Still in Hawaii, settling into our North Shore home and into a schedule for Isla. Taking lots of day trips around the island. Sunset Beach pillbox hike, watching our first Surf Competition (!), wanderlust at Turtle Bay, Isla making a new friend with our landlord/neighbors little guy, going to the beach everyday, Ryan surfing a tonne, diving into daily yoga practice and healthy eating…finally after 1.5 years postpartum, physically feeling like myself again.
Going to our first Luau at Paradise Cove (Isla danced the night away!), getting hit by a terrible flu, more hikes, lots of target visits (I was obsessed!), more beaches and surfing! Our last month on the island 🙁
Time we get back to reality and real life. We left the beautiful island…Ryan was looking forward to going home, I was crying because I didn’t want to leave this beautiful island. Despite the sadness, happy to be returning home to see family, friends, our cat and get back to some sort of normalcy. Visited lots of parks, celebrated Easter, saw family…and more parks!
Celebrating my 2nd Mother’s Day, day trips to a petting zoo, and more hikes and parks. Taking my Prenatal Teacher Training Course and teaching my first Yoga classes!
Finding out I was pregnant!!! Getting my garden planted and growing, and Ryan perfecting his sourdough bread.
Daytrips, concerts, cottages, morning sickness, ice cream…all the summer goodness!
Backcountry camping in the Kawarthas, getting our first ultrasound, fishing trips in town…
Wasaga Beach visit and attempted surf, celebrating 3 years of marriage! Updating our home.
Teaching Yoga, working hard, growing the baby, finding out we are having another girl! Family visits and Thanksgiving.
Finished Office reno’s, Nanny got a cat, getting ready for Xmas, belly bump continues to grow! Busy teaching lots of Yoga 🙂
Getting ready for Christmas, SO MUCH SNOW, baking cookies, decorating, family,
What a year! Such a good way to look back and recap. If you’ve made it this far, good for you! Can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for us (other than a new addition to the family <3)
