Best Movie: LOL What’s a movie?! We did see Star Wars: A New Hope with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra playing the sound track and that was amazing.
Best In Show: Not only did I improve on my third place showing in 2015 with a second place last year; I got that coveted blue ribbon this year. Even better – my entry was Best in Show for the whole cookie class!

Favorite Trip: Our family vacation to Chikaming Township and Lake Michigan. It was just so easy since we had no expectations and stayed in a house (hotels are awful with a toddler!).
This year has been a constant dumpster fire of bad news and it feels impossible to put together a cheery “look how great 2017 was!” post because the macro has been the opposite of great. I’ve started volunteering more and that feels good. Our micro is so, so good and I’m incredibly grateful for our first year in our house, for that perfect lovebug who came to live with us.
