Check us out all sparkling and new in 2015!

As is customary at this time of year, I cobbled together a few of our favorites from our annual Christmas photo album for the grandparents + laid them all here lovingly for your browsing pleasure. As I scrolled through just now I thought to myself, just as I think to myself every year: Geez crap. What a blessing it is to have a record of all these nutsballs things we come up with to do around here, and how grateful I am for the blogging that I do in here, in whatever form it happens, and for whatever reason it does, because in the end it's my people that I'm preserving. And I just think that's really neat.

So let's see . . . January in Portland, March in New York. Manhattan in July, Brooklyn in August. Christmas in Utah, New Years at home. 2014 has seen us all over the place. It was a wild year. And while I didn't totally land all the jumps I tried to make this year--I didn't make a baby, though I did make a book; We didn't get a tropical vacation, but we did hit the lake--I feel like I managed to pull all these extra weird tricks that I now can't imagine our life without. Are all of the years going to be this much bonkers and this much work?! I mean, obviously, yes, they are. The thought of it makes me laugh in disbelief and feel giddy with excitement, too.

So I got ya the story of our 2014 in photos, after the jump.
Your scroller fingers are about to get real tired, maybe you wanna run for a soda first? I'll wait.
Okay. Hit it.

The end! I officially declare 2014 CLOSED! 


Many thanks to Justin Hackworth for the fire escape shot and to Emma Jane Kepley for the Gap + Christmas card photos. The rest be thanks to me, yo! Oh, and Brandon. And Ikea. Ok.

  16. Oh gah! My first post didn't even show up, making that P.S. seem silly. BUT! I had commented that I had forgotten all about Huck the lion and was beyond pleased to see that sweaty summer beast. Looking forward to the birth of your book and to following along with you Holbrooks as you take on 2015 :) xox
