From 2016.

In January, we headed up to Boston to introduce Hugo to some of our dearest friends from college, went sledding in our backyard, had a family date at Mystic Aquarium and Blake made a trip out to San Francisco.
In February, I started spending one night a week in the city for work (thanks to my grandparents' generosity in lending their apartment!), we had our first annual Valentine's Day brunch, and made last minute plans to head down to Disney for a weekend.
In March, we went to our town's dog festival and Gus made an enemy of Scooby Doo. We celebrated Easter with family, I hosted a work event with Giada and we went up to the mountains of New Hampshire for a snowy weekend
In April, we set up our patio for warmer weather, saw Loo and Chris in Concord, swooned over our magnolia tree (or really, just me), and Hugo met up with his buddy Sam in Providence. 
In May, Hugo turned one! We started taking long walks with his little red wagon, went into the city quite a bit and celebrated Mother's Day (my first!). 
In June, we flew out to Nevada and California for a National Parks adventure and celebrated our sixth anniversary in Vegas. We also celebrated my 27th birthday and had a big picnic with friends on the beach.
In July, Gus turned five, I co-hosted a bridal shower for Loo and we spent the Fourth with family, eating ice cream and floating in the pool. I also went to a baby shower for a dear friend and we headed up to the Berkshires for a long weekend reunion with Blake's Providence roommates.
In August, we went to our town carnival and Hugo was horrified. I took a boat out on the Hudson for my company's summer party and planned a birthday celebration for Blake in the city (Comedy Cellar + Parm). We made a day trip out of Newport, painted New Haven bridges with our church and went to concerts on the green.
In September, we spent LDW with friends on the Jersey Shore. I hosted a bachelorette weekend for Loo around Newport and Hugo and I enjoyed long walks around town before dinner most nights. We also went to the town fair with my sister's family and I was promoted at work.
In October, Hugo dressed as Cookie Monster (his favorite) for Halloween. Hugo had his first haircut, I went to the JBF Food Conference and Blake and I had a date night at the Roosevelt. We went into NYC for a baby shower and up to Boston and Providence to see friends. The last Sunday of the month, we baptized our boy and became church members.
In November, we headed down to DC to spend Thanksgiving with family, went to another baby shower in NYC and went up to the Berkshires for Loo's wedding. My sister and brother-in-law adopted their babies.
In December, we headed back down to Disney! We attended a few Christmas parties with colleagues, our families and friends, saw the first snow of the season and spent Christmas with family in Connecticut.

And from 2015, 2014 and 2010 (!!).

Happy New Year! We're going to make 2017 a good one.
