A year already...

It's hard to believe that it has been a year since Barry and I got married!  Our anniversary is this Sunday, September 18th.  It's been an extremely eventful year...the wedding, the book, quitting my job, the move, starting Zumba classes in Derry, the baby...and with a baby on the way, I have a feeling the next year will be just as eventful.

Let's take a look back at the past year...

Doing some Zumba with the Feather Girls.
