Goodbye 2012

Two thousand twelve was a huge year for me.
In the past year I...
...turned 25. Quarter of a century.

...started running and got in the best shape of my life.
{Hoping I can get back there after baby ;)}

...went to California with my best friend. a new job that I love: Children's Director at FBC Somerville.

...celebrated our first wedding anniversary.

...vacationed with my family at the beach.

...bought my great-grandparent's house.

...stood beside my beautiful friend as she married my cousin.

...welcomed our nephew, Myles, into the world.

...found out I was pregnant with our first child.

...& learned our sweet child is a boy.

...started construction on the addition to our home.

A great year indeed.
However; I know 2013 will be even better.
In three short months our son will enter the world.
This will  be the greatest adventure of our lives and I could not be more ready to be a mom!
I'm looking forward to 2013 more than any other year so far. :)

Hope you all have a safe & happy New Year's Eve!
