Twenty Fourteen in Review

Well, 2014 was pretty eventful. I love looking back and reflecting on our year before we begin a new one. These are some of my favorite posts to go back and read through. And although this year had it's challenges, we experienced so many blessings and happy moments these past 12 months.
In 2014...

We snuck away for a few vacations and spent time with our families.

We prepared for the arrival of Caroline.
Caroline's Nursery / Maternity Session / Baby Q for Caroline / Winston Baby Shower 

We welcomed Caroline Grace into our family on May 7.

We celebrated our first Mother's Day and Father's Day as parents!
Matt opened the doors of Marcellino & Tyson, PLLC for business!
It was a good year for the most part. But it would be unfair not to mention the times that left us in puddles of tears, scared or just downright deflated. These moments include Caroline's traumatic SIDS incident {post}, Grandpa going to Heaven {post}, Matt and Caroline's terrifying car accident {post}, Dad's cancer diagnosis {post} and a few other sad times that can't be shared here for one reason or another. But through all of this, I know that God has or somehow will use these times for good.

 So here's to a happy and HEALTHY 2015!
And for fun, our 2013 recap can be found {here}.



  1. Thank you for your friendship and support throughout this year, may your 2015 be filled with only happiness and love. xx

  3. I hope and pray for for not as much sadness this year, but even more happiness. Praying for your Dad's healing. Happy New Year!

  4. What a FULL year. You guys definitely experienced a lot this year, and by far the most joyful being that sweet bundle of smiley happiness that is Caroline. Some of my best memories from 2014 will be those glorious maternity leave months where we had so many fun adventures with you guys. Cheers to '15!

  5. You did such a great job of highlighting the highs of 2014 and still mentioning the low points without letting them take over the joys of your year. It was such a reminder to me to focus on the best parts of 2014 instead of dwelling on the (far too many) moments that saddened me. Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy 2015!

  6. On the eve of a new year it is so interesting to see where this year has taken us. There have been ups and downs, but it's been a great year nonetheless. Cheers to a year of many more great things for your family in 2015!

  7. You have certainly had a year full of ups and downs, but I love reading how you turn to the Lord for life's uncertainties and blessings. I hope you and yours have a wonderful 2015.

  8. What a 2014 y'all had, sweet family! Prayers continuing for everyone, and here's to a fantastic 2015!

  9. 2014 has been a wonderful year! Full of both successes and challenges, for sure, but God's blessings have been evident through it all. I've loved following along in 2014 and can't wait to see what 2015 brings! :)

  10. Here's hoping for a less eventful but just as blessed 2015!! It's hard to believe how much Caroline has done in her short life so far!! Here's to more!!

  11. A bittersweet year for you and your family my friend - but like you always do, always so positive and full of faith in remembering the happy moments and memories. Wishing you a magical year in 2015 x

  12. Having babies (mine was born April 7!) definitely made this the best year ever! Happy New Year!
