A Look at 2012

2012 was filled with many blessings, celebrations, trips, and life lessons and each and every one has made me more of who I am and has shaped me into the person I am today. 

The last few days I have been reflecting on everything that 2012 has ment to me and everything I have been blessed to experience. 

{A Few 2012 Memories} 
- My Alma-mater winning the NCCA FCS Championships in January
- Wedding dress shopping with Amanda Sue, Nae and bridesmaids.
- Joining weight watchers in February - I have since lost 28 Ibs. Summer and most of fall were unproductive weight loss times but I guess that is why it is called a journey. 
- Visiting Duluth in March 
- A trip to Voyager National Park with friends. It was such a thrill for me to travel to Voyager and visit the only National park that is in Minnesota. 
- Falling in love with frozen yogurt + topping bars this summer
- Standing up as maid of honor in Nae's wedding in June. 
- Roadtrip with L to New Ulm, MN
- Attending the Minnesota State Fair twice
- In three weeks I took 2 plane rides, visited three states, slept in 5 different cities. 
- Flying out to visit Amanda in Ohio. The adventures we had were epic. 
- Celebrating two 2013 engagements, attending 5 weddings, participating in 2 of them. Attending two bachelorette parties, 1 baby shower and 1 wedding shower. 
- Colorado trip to see Olivia for the first time in 2 years. 
- Cheering on the Bison live
- Becoming a self-proclaimed holiday coffee expert
- Shelby asking me to be one of her bridesmaids. Wedding #5 coming September 15th, 2014.
 - Hiking in Banning State Park
- Standing up with Krisit as she got married
- Time with family & friends
- Turning 28 years young

This past year has been fully of many adventures, surprises and opportunities and I am beyond blessed to be here today able to reflect on it all. I cannot wait to see what 2013 will hold for me but whatever it is I know it will be a wild ride and I am willing to walk out and meet it. 

Happy New Years Friends!
