Best Moments Of Twenty-Sixteen


2016 had to be my most favorite year yet! This was a year of true growth, difficult choices, and incredible moments. The twelve months I learned the most about myself and God's faithfulness. I feel blessed beyond words to be able to sit back and reminisce about the experiences. I encourage you to do the same! Set aside a few moments this week and gather your thoughts, photos that hold a special place in your heart, and write about your year. Being someone who tends to forget things more often than not, this was definitely a piece I didn't want to miss publishing! 

So here they are; a handful of the best moments to wrap up the old and bring in the new! Big thanks to iPhone IOS updaters for saving dates when you take photos on your iPhone. You're the real MVP!

Starting off the year conquering fears, making friends, and being apart of a job that blessed me so much in that season of life.

February 4th, 2016
Embracing life's most special moments. 
This gazebo was the exact spot where Brandon popped the big question to me July 2015. A place that now holds a cherished memory to both of us.

Celebration for my best friend.
Someone I want to feel special every day! Surprise for a wonderful mom.   

March 22nd, 2016
The day I returned to the lighter side! 
I finally found a hairdresser whom I absolutely adore. This is the first year in many I stopped cutting and coloring my own hair. Boy, does it feel great!

April 2nd, 2016
The big twenty-two for Brandon! 
This trip was especially my favorite because we got to walk the gorgeous cobblestone streets of Old Montreal and visit the biodome! One of the coolest sites we've seen yet.

May 18th, 2016
The day we adopted two new, little furry friends into the family. 
Say hello to Tubby and Mittens!

May 28th, 2016
A truly perfect Breakfast at Tiffany's bridal brunch. 
Surrounded by women who showered me with love was one of this years greatest joys. These ones really know how to make a girl feel special. 
I can't help but express how much love I had for the waffle station too!

June 3rd, 2016
The exciting day leading up to the wedding festivities. 
These girls; I can't thank them enough for everything they do and who they are.

June, 4th 2016
Truly the best day ever! 
Becoming the wife to my high school sweetheart, re-uniting with my absolute best friend of nine years, the girls by my side, the joining of two families, the long-lived friendships, the dress, the fun, the cake, the laughter, the celebration of pure love. 

June 18th, 2016
Visiting the very place I've dreamed about seeing since teeny Tiff tot years. 
Atlantis Bahamas, I am grateful for your beauty.

Coming in third with our very exclusive one of a kind retro, abstract, bridal gown.

A fun and first surprise fall picnic by the water. 
It sounds crazy to say out loud, but this was our first picnic ever, even after six years! 

September 10th, 2016
Celebrating friends, marriage, and God's goodness.

September 17th, 2016
One of my favorite and most memorable trips to Albany, New York. 
Strolls in the foliage filled park, three hour walk around museums, lunch by the State Capital, and spontaneous driving around. These are my kind of times.

September 26th, 2016
Welcoming the cutest baby girl, Lennon into the world. 
The family just keeps growing! This will mark three nieces to bring shopping and talk about life's crazy adventures with one day. I'm loving every minute of it!

October 8th, 2016
Re-discovering my love for reading and learning a lot about myself through the beautiful words of these pages. A book that honestly changed my life.

October 9th, 2016
A North Eastern girl doing a North Eastern favorite. October calls for apple picking! 
Full of adventure, plenty of laughs, and pie baking competitions. The husband happened to take home the winners title, just in case you were wondering.

October 18th, 2016
A day unplanned. Moments of presence. Places of peace.

November 12th, 2016
Because I love my crazy family and our overly silly adoration for throwing a ball at pins. 

December 2nd, 2016
This Friday afternoon I surprised Brandon with our first tree. 
The excitement for both of us couldn't be contained. His joy brought me happiness as we headed into the month of Christmas full force. I can't lie, we love every excuse to celebrate Jesus! 

December 24th, 2016
Spending our six Christmas together and getting to sign all the cute holiday cards; the Barretts. Our first and most certainly not our last.

December 26th, 2016
The day after Christmas when Brandon and I set up the new desktop. 
A gift I will never be able to express my gratitude in words for. The back story is the real reason the tears shed that day. An investment we had talked about making for YEARS was now right in front of me.

December 31st, 2016
Out with the old and in with the new with old friends and new. 
Hosting any sort of special occasion has always been one to be laid on my heart. We were so excited to get to spend the last few minutes of 2016 with some special people. 

I couldn't be any more ready to see what 2017 will bring! This is the first year I have ever been so ecstatic for what's ahead. 2016 was the most memorable year ever, but the story isn't over yet!
