Taking Stock: 2016!

So this year has been QUITE an adventure for pretty much everyone involved!  Earlier this week I posted my best blog posts of 2016, and now I'm going to share my most exciting adventures of 2016!

And so, just like I usually do for each month, I'm going to 'Take Stock' of the entire year of 2016!  Get ready for lots of memories and LOTS of photos!...


In January, after the Savage Family's annual New Year's Morning sunrise on the beach tradition, my brand new baby nephew, Aiden, was able to come home from the hospital and we all spent pretty much the entire first month of 2016 just loving him and taking photos of him and staring at his unbelievable cuteness.


In February we had the awesome opportunity to take Jess on her first road trip - to visit her sister Daphne at her college and see her in a production she was starring in there!  We had a blast exploring Gettysburg, hanging out with Daphne, and posing wih as many Abe Lincoln statues as possible.


Most of our March was spent settling into our new house!  We did a lot of unpacking, exploring, and just generally getting used to our new space!


April, for me, was a month of lots of theatre!  I closed The Flick, a show I was board operating, performed in SchoolHouse Rock, and rehearsed to perform in Decision Height!


In May, we were blessed to celebrate my cousin Alyssa and her new husband Jarrod's wedding!  We had a blast and it was so beautiful!


June means birthdays for both me and Miss Jessica, so we had a blast with that (I got to go to a book signing for my friend Melissa with my friend April and her baby, Marvel!)!  Then, of course, Jess headed back to California to spend time with her mom.


July was busy, busy, busy in our world!  I was able to celebrate my best friend Becky at both her bridal shower AND her Bachelorette party, PLUS Christopher and I went on a mini-vacation (check #SavageSecondHoneymoon on Instagram for more photos of our hilarious trip)! 


August was also an exciting month for us - my blog had it's 100th Post, we went to a James Taylor concert with my parents that was OFF THE CHARTS AMAZING, Jessica returned from her California trip, AND I was able to go on a day trip to Old Orchard Beach with my new friends!  August was a wonderful end to the whole summer, truly.


In September we celebrated our very first wedding anniversary AND I was able to stand by Becky's side while she married her sweetheart! <3 Such a month of love!!


October was full of more rehearsals (for Ye Merry Gentlemen and A Christmas Carol!), as well as Mr. Aiden's first Halloween!


In November we got to celebrate another wonderful wedding - Christopher's brother Andrew and his lovely new wife Christine!  So awesome!


December was, unsurprisingly, for the most part focused around Christmas!  I performed in A Christmas Carol, we took our Christmas card photos, and we had several wonderful Christmas celebrations to boot!

And now?  Mostly just a lot of prepping for this upcoming year of new adventures!  I'm ready for ya, 2017!  Can't wait for us all to see what the new year has in store!

Hi, I'm Grady! Welcome to my blog :) A little about me? I'm a smitten newlywed and brand-new stepmom living in New Hampshire. My day job is boring on paper but great in real life (just like Dunder Mifflin!), and when I'm not working I love to spend time with my family, perform in or manage productions at the theatre, and eat ice cream while listening to yet another financial management podcast.  I write about my marriage, step-parenthood, and whatever else is going on.  Be sure to follow me on InstagramFacebookTwitter, and Pinterest, and subscribe to my blog!
