Happy New Year!!

I can’t really believe that it’s 2018 already?! 2017 was one of my favorite years of all time.

I put together a list of the most striking events of the year

On Spring break Alexander had a massive allergy attack and ended up in the ER. It was absolutly terrifying. That’s how we found out that he is deeply allergic to tree nuts

Our baby girl Angelina has turned two and she now has opinions of her own!! Listening to her “voice” has been such a precious highlight. She always says “pleash” and “tank you, mommy” in her sweet little voice. I love hearing what she has to say, and her contribution to the conversations

Unfortunately, Alexander had a second visit to the emergency room when Michael and I were walking him to school on the last day of the year. He got hit by a car when he was crossing the street on his scooter. This is a longer and very terrifying story that I would like to expand on another time in the future when the moment is right (+ when I’m ready. It still feels raw and too terrible to revisit in detail right now)

Annabelle was chosen to be the COVER GIRL for CHILD magazine!! Go Bella !! She graced the cover of the February issue, and it was such a fun and wonderful experience.

Summer in France was one huge highlight of the year. We got to spend 4 beautiful weeks at our wonderful and generous friend, Camile Abdelnour’s home with my parents. This year was particularly special because all of the children had vivid memories of past trips to France, and they too could not wait to go have fun in Europe with friends and family for the summer.

Thank you to all of YOU for your love and support. The strength and validation you give me is what keeps me going and wanting to make this space better and better all the time.

2018, makes me a little nervous because big changes are ahead *deep breath*

Right now, I will reflect happily on the wrap of a great 2017!!

Happy New Year from me, and the SC team
