January 2, 2013

This is My Year!

Happy New Year, dear friends!
I know it may seem like I feel off the face of the planet over the last 2 weeks, but I've been busy enjoying my vacation! I wanted to focus on spending quality time with my friends and family, and truly being present.

However, those following me on Instagram {new!!} or Twitter may have seen the many shenanigans and adventures while I was on my blog sabbatical. :)

But, yes I missed you all terribly and have had quite the inkling to blog while I was off holiday gallivanting!

Welcome back, loves. Can't wait to catch up!

2013 is here, can you believe it?
Where did this past year go? I can't be the only one who feels like we didn't even have Halloween... right?

Well, I've never been more excited for a new year in all my life, and I have a feeling that 2013 has so much magic in store for me!

This past year was absolutely incredible for so many reasons:

+ my dad was declared cancer free {praise the good Lord!}
+ sissy graduated from high school and began her KU adventure
+ Adam proposed at the end of June and we celebrated 3 years together
+ the many blessings of blogging
+ my parents announced they are moving to KC
+ my best friend and my SIL got married
+ we've laughed and celebrated life with our friends
+ cuddling my friends' chubby precious newborns
+ found a new church home
+ made plenty of amazing memories!

Looking back, I can see the joy and the blessings! And looking forward, I am so ready for the amazing adventures ahead...

+ I marry my best friend in 66 days. 66 days. (Come on March 9th!!)
+ nesting and making Adam's house feel so cozy/homey
+ no more goodnight farewells
+ entertaining friends and family at OUR home (woah...)
+ my parents moving to Kansas City
+ work adventures
+ fitness goals
+ getting involved in our church's children's ministry
+ volunteering
+ getting to meet my dear friend's baby in May
+ traveling to new places
+ new things for Life of Meg (hello face lift!)

...and so SO much more!

{ I have a feeling this is my year, and I plan to make it the best year yet! }


I have lots headed your way the next few weeks - tons of photos coming, wedding updates, recipes, inspiration... and more!!
