2012 in Review

I am so excited to write this year in review because it truly was the best year ever. I had a great 2012 with wonderful people by my side. As 2012 began Tom and I anticipated our wedding. Last New Years we weren't even halfway through our engagement and I remember being mostly finished with wedding planning. I thought the year would go so slowly, but with a few exciting events (both anticipated and surprise) the year flew by. You will notice that the wedding was a focus of the year, but it was an amazing year overall. Thanks to everyone who helped make this year special. Cheers to 2012 and here's to 2013! 

Second Row at the Blues Game
This has become a yearly tradition for us!
Hopefully they start playing soon so we can see another game in the all inclusive seats.

A BIG and unexpected move
Started Super Bowl Sunday and new house close date was March 8
After a few major issues with the upstairs neighbor it became clear it was time to get out of the apartment.
First the pod got packed 
Then the pod got moved and to the house "under contract"
Then closing day came and we had our new house! 

Spring Break with MBU Lacrosse
The day after we closed on our house I went on spring break with the team.
We spent our time in Georgia and in Hilton Head, SC. It was lovely.
House Warming Gathering 
After we got a LOT of work done in our new house we hosted a party for our families.
