Three years ago on Thursday I married my best friend. While there have been ups and downs we have most definitely been blessed beyond our wildest dreams. In the past three years we’ve seen each other through job changes, suffered the loss of both of my granddad and Papa, moved twice, bought a house, made wonderful new friends then not quite one year later wished them farewell, adopted the Hunter Bear, demoed our basement, and walked many blocks of Old Town just enjoying each others company. I am so thankful to have such a wonderfully supportive, sweet, funny person to share this crazy life with and can’t wait to see where this next year takes us!
Wow, I can’t believe 2013 is tomorrow! Blogging has been a major fail on my part this year and I am so ashamed! One of my New Year’s goals is blogging at least 2x a week so feel free to hold me to it!
2012 was definitely not lacking for excitement. I found a super sweet mentor who showed me the ropes of wedding photography (thanks, Sarah Danaher of Ampersand Photography!) and I successfully solo shot my first wedding in November. I can’t believe that last January I had zero wedding experience under my belt and now have thirteen! I can’t even believe how awesome that is! I am so so thankful for everyone who has encouraged me this year and helped me get to this point.
Roger and I bought our first house! Isn’t it cute?! It is a small, little duplex in the heart of Alexandria that has man space for Rog, a backyard for our two crazy dogs and a fourth floor office for me. It’s in a fairly original state minus some newer windows and redone hardwoods but is so full of possibility. We plan to start upgrading this summer once we have a few other items checked off our to-do list. Considering neither of us is all that handy I am sure it will be an adventure. Here’s to 2013!
I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and got to spend time with family and friends. Sorry I have been MIA; I was doing just that. It was nice to hang out with sisters and sleep in late.
But now that it’s January it’s back to the grind! I’m excited for a new year with new possibilities. I can’t wait to grow and learn, meet new people, and hopefully see some new places!
