One thing I've always liked to use my blog to do is capture some of my favorite memories. Since I started this one up when the year was almost already over, I thought I would use one of my last posts for 2017 to recap some of the highlights of this year.
Obviously, there was one moment in 2017 that stood above all the rest. I got married to my best friend! May 6th, 2017 will forever be one of the best days of my life. I'll hold back the details for now because I'm planning future posts to share all those with you. But just know, it was a truly incredible day.
All the Wedding Things
Along the same lines as getting married, I loved all the activities that came with it. I loved picking out my dress, getting to know vendors, and traveling to CA to work out all the venue and details. Those things were all great- but there were two especially special moments with my friends. (1) My wonderful friends threw me an amazing bridal shower/bachelorette party in Columbus. And (2) we threw an impromptu party in WV at which we asked our friends to taste test wines from our venue to choose the wines we were serve at our wedding. Both of these days were so special to me.
Moving back to Texas!
Some of you likely already know that before I lived in WV I lived in Dallas. I was so excited when we found out that our next move was taking us back to Texas. The husband and I have been loving exploring Houston and we can't wait to make even more memories here in 2018.
New and Old Friends
Admittedly, some of these friends were made before 2017 but I made some incredible friends during our time in WV and over the course of 2017 most of us began moving on to new roles in new states. While it was a year of goodbyes, these are all people that I know we'll remain friends with for years to come.
We also had MANY weddings this year (in addition to our own) which gave us multiple opportunities to reunite with friends from our hometowns, college, and grad school. There's nothing better than excuses to get together with all the people we love who are now scattered all over the country.
And just for fun, I had to throw a picture of Cooper's best friend in here too :-)
Re-joining the blogging world
Last but not least, I've loved getting back in to blogging. I can't wait to keep bringing you all along with all the things I love in 2018.
