This year has been, without a doubt, one of my favorites so far. Perhaps my favorite. Like, of my whole entire life. It has been life changing and perspective shifting. On January 1 last year, I could never have imagined where I would be today in so many aspects of life.
I feel like it’s been one constant positive feedback loop, which is a pretty amazing place to be living. And I can’t wait for 2014.
So without further ado, let’s take a walk through memory lane and hit just a few of the many highlights:
January – Birdie’s first hotel room and snowy, cold day snuggles.
February – Surprise Valentine’s Day trip to Chicago with this guy and Birdie (the first one was from Revolution – amazing beer, amazing food, amazing beer bottle chandelier).
March – Dreams of summer gardens and our famous chickens.
April – Upping the ante with our new garden fence (backyard time lapse, 2011 to 2013).
May – Celebrating my parents’ 40th anniversary with the whole fam-damily. What a great weekend.
June – Pregnant! Garden is growing. Apprenticeship starts. So many new, really fantastic things all at once.
July – Apprenticeship with Growing Places Indy is in full swing, and my world is shaping up to be a pretty fantastic place to be.
August – It’s official – we let people know we’re having a baby! And summertime is in full swing, as evidenced by a trip to the state fair and our garden.
September – Our wedding at South Circle Farm.
October – Honeymoon/babymoon to Jamaica!
November – Our wonderful baby shower, thrown by my mom.
December – Just a whole lot of thankfulness and happiness going on. I started working with the amazing team at Growing Places Indy, doing operations stuff for them. My parents came to visit for Christmas. We’ve got some ambitious house projects before the baby comes. And Chris and I both took two full weeks off work over the holidays. Life is sweet.
