This year has been an exciting one for me as I’ve gotten engaged, married and pregnant. I feel so lucky for all the good things that have happened. It’s kinda surreal to see all your dreams come true. I can’t wait for 2016 and look forward to meeting our little boy. I hope that you have good luck and good fortune in the New Year! Cheers!
