The Best of 2015 {family favorites}

The Best of 2015 {family favorites} |amerryfeast.comHappy New Year’s Eve! Can you believe it? Every year seems to go faster than the last, but this year SERIOUSLY was gone in the blink of an eye. For us it has been a whirlwind of travel and the BIG MOVE. Our emotions have been all over the map with our repatriation but we are so thankful for another year full of love and life and travel and food.

Just for fun I interviewed my family to find out what some of their favorites from this year were…

All of us are missing Italy- and we’re treasuring each trip we took in 2015.

It’s been a great year, and we have made so many friends and memories along the way. I look back at these photos and I can’t even wrap my mind around everything that we saw and tasted. There hasn’t been much time to write about all of it, so that is one of my resolutions for the New Year.

Happy New Year Friends! Thanks so much for being here. Cheers to 2016 and the delicious adventures that lie ahead!

xx- Heather
