Tag Archives: new year


Even though 2011 was kind of tough, and what I thought to be uneventful…going back through photos of the year brought back memories of tons of events that happened and memories that will last forever.  Babies, baby showers, weddings, parties…one celebration after the next. That’s a good year.

PS, did the llama make you laugh? 🙂


New Year, New Things

Welcome to my first post of the new year, woohoo!  If you’re coming over for the first time from the old blog, hello and thanks for heading over to my brand new space 🙂  Take a look around and add the new blog to your readers/bookmarks!

I started importing my old blog posts onto here, so I’m still going to be going through those and fixing some of the things that didn’t import correctly.  Nothing ever works out perfectly now, does it?

I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Years Eve! We’ve spent the last two nights celebrating, but last night was pretty low key.  I made some yummy food {that I’ll share with you later}, drinks, played games and watched a movie. Oh, and may or may not have set off some fireworks.

How did you ring in the New Years?


Wow, this year has really flown by, it must have been all the wedding stuff going on. I hope the next year slows down a little. I wanted to go through all my photos from the past year and choose some of my favorites/favorite memories from each month. Enjoy!

January: We got engaged last year on Christmas Eve, but had some amazing engagment pictures taken on January by my super awesome buddy Colleen.

February: We got to play in the snow a bit, I love this one of Sadie!

March: We continued with our many home renovations by painting our old kitchen cabinets black and additing hardware. It made such a huge change! Which reminds me, I still need to share our new wood flooring.

April: I got to hang out with some of my bestest friends. Oh, how I wish we lived on the same street, even the same town would be nice!

May: My adorable niece turned ONE! And 7 months later, she looks SO much different from this photo, it’s amazing. I love being an aunt!

June: 2010 was the year of weddings, the first wedding of the year was one my closest/oldest friends. It was small and sweet and great to see other people in your lives so happy and in love.

July: My birthday month! Chris took me to Disneyland for my birthday (first time he had ever been there!) and we spent the weekend in SoCal. I had just purchased my camera so I got to mess with it a lot, which was way fun.

August: Chris and I had also never been camping together, and I hadn’t been since I was a kid. We purchased EVERYTHING we needed for camping, found a random campsite a few hours away, way way way up in the mountains, packed up our dogs and had a great time. The closest store ended up being an hour way. It was an adventure to say the least 😉

September: Wedding #2 of the year, was my cousin’s, who is the same age as me – and they had been dating the exact same time as Chris and I (almost to the day) they got engaged a couple weeks before us and got married a month before us.

October: So much stuff in October! But obviously our wedding was the best part. There’s so many photos I love; but this is one of our ceremony and I ADORE this moment.

November: My family took a little hike, and it’s actually where Chris and I got engaged – we hadn’t been there since so that was kind of neat 🙂 The scenery was amazing; I picked a bunch of these little red flowers and took them home and put them in a vase.

December: Christmastime is my favorite time of year! Everything about it. This is just a sweet memory from Christmas eve, my aunt had some sparklers left over from my other cousin’s wedding (wedding #3, which was in November) so we took them out and dance around the streets with them. SO much fun.

I hope you had a lovely year, and that 2011 is even better!
