It’s officially the last day of 2016, and I have no idea how we are here already! A lot of big changes took place this past year and I felt there was no better way to ring in the new year than to reflect on on my favorite parts from the past 12 months!
Obviously, the biggest impact that occurred this year was the love of my life asking me to marry him! WHAT! I’ve pretty much dreamed about this day since the very first time we exchanged “I love you’s” and it still felt surreal! The effort he put into making sure my family was there just really blew me away!
The next change was moving out of my very first apartment! And while it may not seem like that big of a deal, I was actually pretty emotional as I got closer and closer to moving day. That apartment was the very first place I ever had to myself & will always have a soft spot for it! But I’m excited for the adventure my new place will bring me & more importantly the 10 minute commute to work that gives me extra time to sleep in!
Two big/important moments of 2016 were the arrival of my 2 new nephews Jackson & Shane! The love that comes over me when new family members join the team can not be matched! Their sweet personalities are shining through already and it makes me excited for more years to come!
One of my New Years resolutions for 2016 was to go on more adventures/travel more. While I didn’t get to travel as much as I planned, Joey & I definitely put a lot more effort into how we spent our free time! From backseat picnics by the lake, spending the day in sunflower fields, and last minute trips back to Longwood University to retrace our steps to where we first met, we have built some pretty great memories with each other in the last year!
2017 has a lot to live up to, but it’s the year I hopefully get to marry my best friend, welcome a new little cousin, and another chance to live my life the best way I can! Get excited for the new year y’all!
