Twenty-Twelve in Review

Happy New Year's Eve Y'all!
Twenty-Twelve was one heck of a year! As I look back on all of my posts over the last 12 months I am quickly reminded of why I blog. I had almost forgotten about so many amazing things we experienced, accomplished, celebrated, etc. this year! I also think it is safe to say that 2012 was definitely our best year yet! I am not quite sure how 2013 will top this year.

Here are a few highlights from 2012:

Weddings, weddings and more weddings!
We celebrated more marriages this year than ever before! I absolutely loved standing with 3 of these ladies on their big day, and attending the others this year. My cup truly runneth over with love for all of these newly married couples!
L-R: Channing & Trey’s Southern Affair {April 28}; Ashley & Drew’s Cinco de Marriage {May 5}; Brynn & Palmer’s Farm Wedding {May 19}; Lindsey & Ryan’s Gaylord Palms Wedding {June 23}; Anna & Phil’s Charleston Wedding {September 28}; August & Jonathan’s Winter Wedding {December 15}

Despite our crazy busy year we were able to get away for a few vacations too!
L-R: We rang in 2012 with friends in Charleston; We spent a relaxing cabin weekend in Blowing Rock; We joined Matt’s family for a summer vacation in Folly Beach; We celebrated our anniversary on a cruise in the Bahamas
2012 was also a big year for our careers. I left my old job and started a new one, and we also celebrated Matt’s 1 year anniversary of his growing law firm!

We partied a lot in 2012. Here are just a few of our favorite parties…
L-R: Charlie's 6th Birthday Pawty; Brynn’s Bachelorette in Savannah; Lindsey’s Bachelorette in Orlando; Ashley’s Bachelorette in Orlando; Mel’s 25th Birthday Bash

 Matt traded in his Pathfinder for the Buick, and I traded in the Corolla for the Jetta!

  We celebrated our one year anniversary in November!

 We rented out our old home and purchased a new home!
Whew! What a year! I can’t believe we did all that in just 365 days! I can honestly say that 2012 gave Matt and I some of our most favorite moments together. We are truly grateful for everything and count our blessings often. We are excited to see what’s in store for 2013…

Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve! xo
