2012: Highlight Reel!

Some highlights of 2012!

January
I started the year out with a polar bear plunge and jumped into the Atlantic on New Year's Day. Crazy, yes... but it actually felt kinda good and exhilarating. I'm nuts, I know. On New Year's Day in 2006, my Grampy passed away and my family always gets together for a memorial and throws flowers out to sea to him. Last year we just decided to take a little swim along with the flowers. I am pretty sure my Grampy must have been in heaven saying we were all crazy. Do you like my outfit? Hot, I know. 


February
In February we sent out our Save the Dates, picked out bridesmaid dresses, and went on a Rhode Island adventure. 


March
In March, we celebrated our EIGHT year anniversary, my Dad's retirement, and got to spend St. Patrick's Day in Sarasota for my BFF's wedding! 



April

In April, I got accepted into the program I applied for and made the decision to go back to school in September. It was NOT an easy decision to leave the safety net of my job but I am so glad I did! I think I made the right choice. Also, my then 16 yr old niece came to visit from Michigan for the week all by herself for the first time! And I ordered my wedding invitations!


May

I celebrated my birthday,  amped up the wedding planning, and we booked our honeymoon. Wedding shoes and dancing shoes were big decisions in May!


June

I had my last day at my former job, my lovely maids-of-honor, bridesmaids, and mom threw me a bridal shower. It was so much fun and they did SUCH a good job, and I did a lot of wedding crafting!


July

I blogged only ONCE in July.... I can assure you the rest of the month was filled with planning, planning, planning, beach, beach, beach, and work, work, work! 


August

The wedding festivities began! I have yet to even blog about my wedding in its entirety, but will soon! I got to marry the love of my life. The wedding was magical, and I really wish I could do it all over again.... but my wedding planner told me I get to be a bride all year long until August 11, 2013! ;) In all seriousness though, it has been amazing to be married to my very best friend


September

I got depressed that the wedding/honeymoon were over. We had our annual family clambake complete with Olympics. We went apple picking and did other fun fall activities! 



October

It was back to school for me. I must admit it was super scary at first, but my class has only 10 kids in it and we are close.... so the long, crazy days are fun!

November

I finally had some time to blog about my honeymoon (although I have yet to find the time to finish!). I still DO NOT have access to all my wedding photos which is really irritating me since my wedding was sixth months ago!! 


December

I celebrated a great Christmas with those I love most.... pajama party style, which is our tradition!!


All in all a pretty great year. I can't wait to see what 2013 brings!
