my snow angel/snow monster, because right now is about that age when 50% of the time he’s the sweetest bff ever, and 50% of the time he’s all “mommmmm” 😭😤🙄😫 i’m not going to ask how long this stage lasts for because I imagine toddlerville is here to stay for a while 🤷🏻‍♀️😂

we spent our first new years together in 2008. this is our 12th year of january firsts together. we’ve made so many resolutions, and dreams, and lists with each other. they’ve gone from being wildly independent — things like signing up for tougher college classes, to him getting into grad school, to me finding my first news anchoring job — to resolutions we made together, like buying our first home, to wanting a child, to starting new businesses. and maybe what I love most about all these years together, and about marriage overall, is the flexibility we’ve always given each other to change, and to evolve, and to grow into new versions of ourselves. and whenever those changes have felt especially big, we come back to our core — to two twenty-year-old kids with stars in their eyes and hope in their hearts, with dreams that seemed so impossible yet so achievable. we loved so purely then, and we were so unaffected by how big life really is. and I think coming back to that feeling is like coming home to this magical place that’s solely ours ❤️ #2019

dear 2018, you opened my eyes, my heart, and my mind to lenses I could not have envisioned before now. you gave me superhero powers that I never knew I had. you also reminded me that even superheroes need to sleep sometimes. this year, I prayed more than ever before. I said a lot of ‘thank you’s’ and ‘I love you’s’ and ‘I cannot believe it’s’. this year taught me I could be a mom, a colleague, and a boss, and a wife, a friend, a daughter, a dreamer and a doer—and that I can be all of those things, imperfectly and in complete imbalance, and with the help of my giant village. this year, I learned how to ask for help and forgiveness, while also forgiving myself when I fell short in those roles. 2019, I am ready for the joy, the tears, and the lessons you will bring me. ✨ #bestof2018
