happy new years eve!
chad and i have been brainstorming together to come up with a list of individual dreams, goals, and hopes for the new year. and also as a couple. being married for six months, you quickly realize that your prayers will include being a better wife (and husband, i’m sure). so this year will be a new perspective, as i have two to think about instead of one.
pretty exciting, if you ask me.
this past year has been such an amazing one. it was full of love, joy, and complete and utter happiness. it was a year of ups, downs and many stresses, of course. but overall, it was a year i will never forget.
we were married july 7th, which leads to my absolute favorite moment of 2012. walking down the aisle and seeing this sweet face. (holding back the tears right now)
then there was this moment.
and this moment. (pretty much sums us up)
those fancy photos were taken by the wonderful dale and mere benfield, who quickly became our friends. if you have a wedding coming up, check them out. they are fantastic.
and what is another plus to getting married?! going on a honeymoon to hawaii.
after our honeymoon, we moved into our little bungalow. the cutest early 1900s dream home a girl could want. we love it.
september brought my first birthday as a wife. he did not disappoint.
later in the month, we were invited to a pre emmy party for the “hatfields and mccoys” mini series that chad was in earlier in the year. i was pretty over the moon because that meant
1) my husband is a talented stud
2) we got to travel to LA again
3) i had an excuse to wear a badgley mischka dress
4) we got to take pictures on the red carpet and then socialize among celebrities
5) i got to meet kevin costner. a life long celebrity crush. and then rub his shoulders quite awkwardly. but thats a story for another time.
so proud of my husband. he played a great harmon mccoy. AND the show was nominated for a few emmys, and now a few golden globes. pretty awesome. can you tell i’m proud?
october brought crisp cool weather, fun costumes, and trick or treaters. november brought many days of raking, thanksgiving at our home with the whole hugghins family, and christmas decorations. december brought a new puppy, christmas with my family at our bungalow, our first snow together, and cozy, happy memories.
i really could have added about a million other pictures and stories and important moments. but that would be annoying, i know. so i will stop here.
i really feel so blessed to have made such amazing memories with my best friend. so looking forward to ringing in this new year.
wishing you a sparkly, cozy, bubbly new years eve, wherever you may be!
