I saw this on a blog and I thought it was a great way to remember how wonderful this year was for us! (These are in no particular order!)
1. Marrying Doug
Obviously, this was my favorite part of the year for many reasons. I married the love of my life, and I also had the wedding I dreamt of since I could talk. And I just love being married to him!
2. My Bachelorette Party
Oh my gosh, this might have been the most fun night of my life. I love these girls!! My MOH, Brittany, did an incredible job of planning all of it!
3. Getting the perfect job
I am just amazed by God's timing on all of this. I was so frustrated for months, and then I finally let go of it. Once I did that, I found the perfect job for me! I can't wait to get started! My mom and I went shopping a few days ago, and I got the cutest lunchbox, a matching thermos and water bottle! And shockingly enough, they aren't pink! I made myself get a more professional look, black and white, but they are still really cute :)
4. Volunteering for Bliss Animal Haven
This might be the best thing I have ever done. It feels so great to find something that I really care about, and there is nothing better than finding homes for these sweet dogs.
5. Organizing Pins for Pups, the bowling fundraiser
This event made me so happy. We were able to raise enough money to buy a new transport van to take the dogs to adoption events, and it was so rewarding to see how we could make a big difference for these innocent animals and the directors of Bliss.
6. Graduating from UGA
See how happy I am? I waited a looooooong time for this. Well, I was only there for 4 years but I am just not a school person. I loved Athens and the experience, but class = no fun.
7. Having Pep finally come live with us
Pep is Doug's first cat, and it makes me so happy to see how much he loves Pepper now! He didn't really want it to happen, but Pep kind of stole his heart! :)
8. Sending Christmas cards and decorating for our first married Christmas together
If you haven't noticed by now, I love Christmas. It is such a happy time, and it has been so wonderful to spend it with my new hubby!
9. Visiting Charleston for the first time
I adore this city. I had always wanted to go, and my parents were going there during my mom's spring break. The night before they were leaving, I made a quick decision to join them (best decision ever). Of course, I missed a lot of class that week, but it was totally worth it! I would love to live there someday.
10. Our honeymoon
Our honeymoon was incredible!! We think it's very important to just escape from our lives every once in a while and just enjoy each other. The resort was absolutely perfect, and we are counting down the days until we can go back!
