Farewell 2016 and Welcome to 2017!

Just like that the year has come and gone. I can honestly say that 2016 has been one of the toughest years of my life so far. I’ve experienced a lot of happiness and a great deal of pain. But life is always what you make it and that’s why I’ll continue to dwell on the positive thoughts and happy times in my life! I’m excited, happy, nervous and READY for what’s to come in 2017.

Since a young age, I was told not to be anxious about the next day, because the next day will have its own troubles. With that being said, I hope despite whatever you’ve been through in 2016, whether good or bad, you go into 2017 with nothing but love, happiness and positive thoughts.

Jay and I had an amazing 2016 New Year’s Eve celebration with our good friend from Toronto. We all enjoyed a beautiful sit-down dinner at a trendy, upscale, Thai, Indonesian and Vietnamese themed restaurant located in Western New Providence, the Bahamas called SHIMA. The restaurant is apart of the beautiful boutique hotel called ‘The Island House’ and I must say it was really nice to have a wonderful intimate dinner, and also enjoy the New Year’s Ever festivities without having to be uncomfortably jammed into a crowd of people you don’t even know. After dinner, we were able to dance and enjoy the 2017 New Year countdown on the spacious dance floor with great people. And if you’re from the Bahamas or been living here for a while, you know that there is no better way to welcome in the New Year than with a little Junkanoo rush out. The night was fantastic and let’s not forget the amazing fireworks!

Now for the best 2017 news of all! As you can clearly see from the intro photo, it is with great joy and excitement Jay and I are able to announce that we’re expecting our first child in  May 2017! This is undoubtedly the happiest post I’ve ever written, and I can not wait to share our pregnancy journey details. I’ll be sharing more over the coming days, but listed below are a few details:

  • Due Date: May 14, 2017
  • Gender: Baby Boy!
  • Name: We finally settled on a name for our baby boy, but we won’t be announcing it until the baby shower. 

The next blog post will be completely dedicated to Baby Gotlieb. This is our miracle! Our hearts are full, and we are so excited to finally have you along for the journey! Something tells me that this is going to be our most amazing year yet!
