Twenty Thirteen in Review

To say this has been our "best year yet" would be a huge understatement. Although there will always be a few tough times sprinkled in every year, I have to say that 2013 was the year we had more happy moments than ever before. I feel incredibly and undeservingly blessed as I reflect on our highlights from the past 365 days...
 
We made our house our home...
We settled in to our new home and although we still have lots to projects left to accomplish, it is awesome to look back at the progress we've made! You can find all home updates {here}.
We celebrated birthdays...
Charlie celebrated 7 {post} // Matt celebrated 33 {post} // I celebrated 27 {post}
 
We vacationed, took trips with friends and spent time with family...
May & Justin's Charlotte visit {post} // Linville Cabin Weekend {post} // Florida Beachfest {post} & Folly Beach Vacation {post} // 2nd Annual Green River Tubing Trip {post} // Panthertown Valley Camping Trip {post} // MEXICO {post} // Two Year Anniversary Cabin Weekend {post} // We Hosted Thanksgiving {post}
 
We partied...
Kristen's Bachelorette Party in Kiawah {post}, Bridal Shower {post} & Wedding {post} // A Backyard Dinner Party {post} // Our Summer Soiree {post} // Fiesta Engagement Party for Mel & Travis {post} // Jill & Robbie's Wedding in Massachusetts {post} // Christmas Cookie Exchange Party {post}
Matt highlights
Matt's team took 3rd place in a BBQ competition {post} // Matt took a leap of faith with his business and merged with a larger firm in town // Matt traded in the Buick for a GMC Sierra
 
And the biggest blessing of 2013...

  10. Girl what a fabulous year for you and your husband. Most people wish for things to happen for them the way they did for you two: marriage, settled in to a (beautiful) home, great career, lots of fun pre-baby, and a little one on the way. Congrats on a fabulous year and here's to next year being even better for you and your new family :)
