Oh man, what a year it’s been. Currently, I’m in Kauai on our babymoon and I feel incredibly blessed to be celebrating the end of 2013 in paradise. I wanted to take some time to look back on this incredible year.
I STARTED BLOGGING
Late April 2013, I started blogging more seriously. Before, I had just posted some photos here and there but didn’t really have a blogging direction. When I wrote my first At The Moment post and my How To Study post, I got amazing feedback and took my blog in a whole other direction. Today, it’s an amazing extension of my life and everything in it.
I WENT TO SEATTLE
And many other amazing places. I have always wanted to go to Seattle and I had the opportunity to go when I presented my year-long research project at the International Association of Dental Research General Session. I also visited the first Starbucks! Paul and I also went to Tahoe a couple of times for his birthday and for a weekend getaway.
WE CELEBRATED OUR 2ND WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
Paul and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary. We had a quiet sushi dinner and it was so romantic. We’ve gone wine tasting, been on weekend trips, and had simple evenings at home. Our marriage is stronger than ever and I cannot wait to see how we grow in our love and partnership.
I CELEBRATED MY 24TH BIRTHDAY
It was one of the best birthdays I’ve ever had. My loving husband and amazing friends surprised me with a whole day of fun. We saw a musical, ate cake, had a dance party, went to a local brewery, and had dinner. It was so incredible and fun! Here’s to next year!
WE ARE EXPECTING
And to top off this amazing year, Paul and I found out that we are expecting our first child. I took the test on August 13, 2013 and we have been overjoyed ever since. I’ve loved watching my body change and feeling all the symptoms of pregnancy - the good and the bad! We cannot wait to welcome our beautiful little girl in late April!
What a year! Cheers!
