2014 Recap

I can't believe this year is over! It's been a year of new beginnings for us, and it's great to look back and see how far we have come.

January, February, March:

I started my new job! (Ok, well technically my first day was December 30th, but close enough) I had signed up with a temp agency in December and they needed someone to fill in last minute the Monday after Christmas. I jumped on it and I'm so glad I did! I love my job, it's seriously a wonderful place to work and I feel so blessed to have it!

In February I started on my fitness journey. A friend of mine had been posting a lot on Facebook about her progress with Beachbody programs and I was amazed at her transformation! After a stressful couple of years I had let my weight creep up and I just didn't feel good. It was time for a change. So I started the 21 Day Fix with her and a group of ladies on Facebook. It was hard at first, changing pretty much everything about my diet and exercise, but then I started to see results and I was hooked!

We also took a trip to St. Augustine and went to the Lighthouse for the first time:

April, May, June:
In April my brother got married! And we got to do the cake for them, which was so much fun! 

We also took a trip to St. Simons, where we got married 8 years ago (wow, we're old!): 

In May we took a trip to Fernandina Beach: 

And in June I turned 31! 

We also took a trip to Tulsa and got to see Adam's family, including our darling niece and nephew!

July, August, September: 

In July we celebrated the 4th with friends: 

And we celebrated Adam's half birthday (because having a December birthday kinda stinks, no one is in town or available for birthday parties):

In August I started this blog

And we celebrated our 8th Anniversary at this beautiful place: 

September was the start of another, um, interesting season of Florida Gators football.

And we took our trip to Disney

October, November, December: 
(Almost done! Believe me, I'm as relieved as you are. This post is A BEAST)

In October we made cakes, watched football, dressed a dog as a pumpkin, played Dorothy, spent a weekend solo (but with my friends Ben and Jerry), went to the fair, and went to the beach (because why not the beach in October?) 

November was Thanksgiving (Thank you Captain Obvious) for two and finally getting pictures for our Christmas card taken: 

And last but not least, December was a flurry of Christmas parties, food, the Nutcracker, baking, family, and fun (Wahhh, I don't want it to be over)!

Wow, when I look at it all together like that, I feel so grateful for such a wonderful, fun-filled year! And a little tired...but mostly grateful! 

I'm really excited for the new year, I have some goals in mind (of course), some things I want to continue from 2014 and some things I want to start in 2015 (but more on that tomorrow). But right now it's good to look back on a year full of fun and blessings. Cheers to 2014! 

And if you actually made it through all that, seriously, thank you. Because I almost didn't make it through myself. 

Linking up with Bella and Lisa!
