Welcome to High Five for Friday – hosted by me, BeckyTif, and Della! Come, read up on what we’ve been up to this week and get to know some  amazing bloggers.

Since we’ve got a few days left of 2017 I thought it would be fun to share my favorite moments on Instagram! Because, let’s face it, 2017 was the year of quiet. Instagram became my blog extension 🙂

1. One of my favorites from last year was taking Elizabeth to see Daniel Tiger Live! It was her first time going to the fancy theater, and she loved every moment of it!

2. Having 2 kids has been fun but a struggle. Life gets more complicated the more kids you add on. But this year has been fun once William got a little older. He adores Elizabeth!

3. My husband and I celebrated 10 years of marriage in July! To celebrate, we took a solo trip to Asheville and the NC mountains. It was such a relaxing, wonderful vacation. I could do that again every year.

4. I love holidays! And I loved teaching Elizabeth some 4th of July patriotic tunes 🙂

5. This year, my biggest lesson learned was being ok with not doing things perfectly, or my way. I’m naturally a perfectionist, but I also decide to do nothing if I think it can’t be done the right way. But when your planned staged pics don’t go well, you just roll with it.

What was your favorite moment from 2017? I hope you had a glorious holiday AND you have a great start to 2018!!

This week’s featured blogger is Heather from My Glittery Heart! She’s a crafter at heart and loves running her Etsy shop full of lovely glittery goodness! She’s got the perfect “get to know me” post today with all of her favorite highlights from the year. Swing over and say hello to Heather!

How was your week?? Can’t wait to hear all about it!

    I am totally the same way re: perfectionism. I’d rather not do something than to do it “badly.”
    When you have such cute models, though, non-staged pics turn out pretty darn well. 🙂 Hope you guys have a Happy New Year!

    Merry Christmas! I am glad you had some great moments this year. I am trying to prepare myself for the learning curve that comes with another baby. You are doing great! Have a great last few days of 2017!

    Sounds like you had a great year my friend! Your babies are so adorable. I feel ya on the photos. It’s almost impossible to get Raylan to look at the camera.
