Happy six month anniversary to myself and Matty! I just asked Matt if it feels like six months–he responded, “feels like a lifetime.” I have to agree.

Honestly, it feels like a lifetime because so much has happened to us in these past six months. And, since I’ve mostly been absent from blogging, you know NOTHING, Jon Snow. So, here is a recap of the first six months of our marriage:
1. Our family grew
Our family grew by three! In January, my brother and his wife welcomed Eleanor Valentina (Nora). Our first niece! YAY! She is a beautiful little baby with a full head of hair.

Next, in February, Matt and I welcomed Millicent Abigail Thomas into our household. She is a sassy goldendoodle who loves to cause us trouble. But, she is our sun and stars and we couldn’t have asked for a better puppy. That’s all I have to say about Millie, but better believe you’ll be seeing Millie-centric posts in the future.

Lastly, in April, Matt’s sister and her husband had their first baby–Miss Charlotte Ashby! We were over the moon to have another adorable little niece to spoil, and we are also her godparents!

That’s all the growing that this family will be doing for now. Trust me, we have our hands full with our impish little doodle.
2. We bought a house
Obviously, HUGE news. It’s a condo-style townhouse that is still currently in the process of being built. If all goes well, we will be moving in three weeks!
