Happy 2015 friends!
We did it! We made it through another year, and we welcomed in the New Year with a blast! Yesterday, I posted the first part of my 2014 adventures! Joshua and I had so many wonderful adventures, that I just felt like I couldn't get it into one post! So, here are the rest of the 2014 adventures!
July started with the end of our Disney vacation!
We had so much fun, and Joshua and I are definitely excited about going back! We even got to see the July 4, 2014 fireworks at Epcot! Super fun!
On the way home from Disney, we got to stop and see one of my best friends, Ashleigh in Columbia!
Rachel and I participated in our first Wine & Design class in Raleigh, which was great! I think our pictures came out nice too!
Also in July, I finished reading Bread & Wine, which was wonderful! You can see my review of it here!
August started off with a beach trip!
I am writing this post from my cold home in Westfield, so this hot beach picture is literally leaving me drooling! I wish we could back to this! So much fun! You can read about the wonderfulness here!
August also brought about the beginning of a new school year! Another great event, because it is the beginning of something new! You can read about the new school year here and here!
September is birthday month!
Joshua and I had a wreck at the end of August, so Joshua got me an early gift to kick off birthday month!
I also started pledging CERES Women's Agricultural Fraternity in September! Another one of the best decisions I could have made! I gained a whole support systems of women that I absolutely love!
In October, Joshua and I finally had our engagement photo session!
Finally! We got our pictures taken and I have absolutely loved them! My mom took the pictures, and I did the editing so together, I say we make a great team! This is the official start of #ourhauserstory!! Since we got the pictures taken, we went ahead and ordered and sent out Save the Dates too!
Boom! And they looked amazing! You can read more about that here!
Also in October, I officially became a sister of CERES!
My brother married the love of his life!
And my 19 year old cat passed away, and joined her twin in kitty heaven. You can read about all three of these things here!
Phoenix and I also dressed up for Halloween, and really had a blast hanging out at home with Joshua!
November is pretty awesome because my sister's 17th birthday was the 13th!
Yep! Little Merritt is growing up! It is hard to believe!
As a belated birthday gift to himself, Joshua bought a new truck!! Big, beautiful Ford! My man has good taste!
Also in November, I participated in Operation Christmas Child, and I signed up for the 2014 Great Christmas Exchange!
For Merritt's birthday, my family went hiking at Hanging Rock State Park! Beautiful but cold weather, and oh so much fun!!
Thanksgiving also happened, and for the first time in a while, I spent the holiday without Joshua! It was difficult, but hopefully this will be the last year that we spend it apart!
December brought more excitement!
Joshua and I went to Roanoke to see Scrooge with our family and friends!
I finally got my Christmas Cards sent off!
I got my 2014 Great Christmas Exchange gift sent off, and I got a response! I still owe you an email back Beth!!! So...that will happen!
Christmas was wonderful, and Joshua and I really enjoyed spending it with our families! Joshua even made a Christmas Day dinner that we are still eating on!!
We decorated our Night Tree with our family, which is a really sweet tradition that I think we both enjoy! The idea is to decorate a tree with edible ornaments for the animals, and my family sings Christmas carols and drinks hot chocolate while we do it!
We wrapped up 2014 with my daddy turning 53 on December 30! All in all, it was an awesome year!
It was definitely a year filled with lots of love, and adventure! And I mean filled!! I don't think we could have squeezed anything else into this year! I absolutely had a fabulous 2014, and I know 2015 is going to be even better!!
Is your 2015 is looking bright as well?
Like I said, let me know!
