Bye 2012, It Was Good While It Lasted!

What Are You Doing New Years Eve? by Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt on Grooveshark

Thought I'd join the blogging world in doing a little recap from this great year; the year I married my soulmate, became a Senior in college, landed an awesome internship, and many other wonderful things! 


-Long distance with Josh, but it was worth it because I figured out he was the one.
-Had lots of roomie dates, and made tons of snow angels and hot cocoa to keep my mind off my achin' heart.


-Visited Josh in Seattle, saw the Northwest for the first time-and he proposed! Story here.
-We opened my time capsule that had been reserved for the night I would get engaged, and created when I was 16. I had a list of attributes I wanted my future hubs to have-it was craaaazy how right on he was. Like I said...meant to be. 


-Visited Denver with Josh and my family.
-Last month of long distance!
-My birthday was great :)


-No more long distance! Reunited at last!
-Took our engagements, and you better believe I cuddled the crap outta that kid. (Photography credit goes to Alpine Photography)

May and June

-Breezed by. Spent time planning the wedding, going to school, counting down the days until our wedding. 


-July 27, 2012 only THE best day of our lives. The day he become mine and I became his in the purest and most beautiful way people can become one. We were finally married, and we loved every second of that day. (Photos by Alpine Photography)


-Went on our honeymoon-a cruise to Haiti, Jamaica, and Mexico. SUCH A BLAST! 
-FInally fulfilled my life long wish of swimming with dolphins. 
-Moved into our first apartment together!


-Continued nesting.
-Started school. Loved life.


-Started "The How to Blog"!!


 -Went home to Colorado for Thanksgiving, lots of yummy food and cute, cute babies to kiss and squeeze! 


-Survived finals.
-Moved to the Northwest.
-Had a splendid Christmas with Josh's family.
-And currently as content and happy as any two people can be!

Although 2012 was a wonderful year, filled with lots of memories that we'll always remember-we look forward to 2013 and the adventures it'll bring.
