This has seriously been an amazing year. One of my most favorite. One of my best. One that has had many "firsts". So, in this case....a post-filled post is quite necessary.
The year started off wonderful because I became a homeworker. I was also promoted this year. It was the first time I had ever helped plan a baby shower and our family welcomed two beautiful baby boys. I went home to South Carolina plenty of times this year for many reasons: for a wedding reception & a trip to the lake, for 4th of July, Kimbug & Taz's birthdays, to meet baby Jude, for annual parties, and just to see my dearly missed family. I also had some rough times this year, but thankfully overcame them. My sister Nancy also had a blessing this year. I had such great times in Alabama too, like when we had the Slanketfest and went to the Greek Festival. My friend Leslie got married. I also went to Gadsden a lot and there I visited Noccalula Falls for the first time, ate steak, went fishing, watched a football game, met his mom for the first time, and had little adventures. This was also the year that sweet cupcake and I started our love story. We made priceless adventures so far to Gatlingburg and Mississippi. I saw my first musical, thanks to him. He also moved closer to me, changing a one hour distance to 15 minutes. I even had someone to dress up with me for Halloween this year and I never dress up ever! Thanks to my love, I also had one of the best Christmases to date. We watched so many dollar theater movies this year! That reminds me...I will miss that place once I move since it won't be 5 minutes away anymore. I also started posting about our anniversaries from 6, 7, 8, and 9 months. I hope to do more for his birthday next year because I had such a blast celebrating mine in Atlanta. My blog has had many firsts this year such as; my one year blogversary, reaching my first 100 friends, hosting my first giveaway, posting my first vlog, having a guest blogger, doing my first blogger swap, and actually winning someone else's giveaway. There is so much more that I can include, but from the looks of it...my year was near perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better family, boyfriend, or friends to spend the year with.
Wow. After writing, linking, and rereading this whole summary...I am blown away at how much has happened over the course of 12 months. I am so ready and can not wait for the next 12 months. I am in Gadsden for the rest of the weekend and will be counting down with sweet cupcake, his family, and our friends. Cheers to a brand new year and many more great memories and adventures to come!
