I'm really hoping to one-up Facebook here, because when I saw my Facebook year in review spiel... If that thing isn't a huge bummer, well then I don't know; I guess you have a cooler, more facebook-involved life than me. So here goes a year in review. My own, better, version.
For my birthday, Jon surprised me with a road trip to the Northwest. We went to Boise, Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco to check out places that we were interested in moving to. (*Note: We were not considering Boise haha. It was just on the way. But it was still a cool place. No hard feelings Idahoans.) We really fell in love with all of the cities, but decided that we would try to end up in Portland!
I learned to cook! I mean, I NEVER thought I would enjoy cooking. But, let the record show, I made all the above food (and even enjoyed it).
I attended sewing school, worked on a bunch of stuff for 63 Strings, and participated in my first craft fairs!
Jon and I were bridesmaid and groomsman in this cute wedding. Look at those cakes! And isn't Jon the cutest?!
Just as I got our little condo all decorated and feeling homey, we decided to move to Salt Lake for the summer. It was bittersweet leaving our first newlywed home, where we had shared lots of firsts and good memories, but we were excited to move closer to friends. When we went to lock up the empty apartment, I even cried a little. Totally wasn't expecting that!
But the tears were short-lived, because we moved into the coolest house in town. We made the dearest friends, learned about gardening, went to lots and lots of pot lucks, and pretty much just had the best summer ever.
My mom and I went to visit my cousin in New York and had a blast exploring the city with her.
I had to say goodbye to these cute little munchkins that I had become so close to. That was pretty rough.
We went to my cousin's beautiful wedding in October. It was extra cool because Jon and I were able to celebrate our anniversary at the same spot where we were married.
The wild animals hosted a Fancy Tooth Benefit Going Away Party Halloween Prom, with turned into a plain old (but super fun) party.
I reunited with my beautiful friends back east, and got to spend lots of time with my family.
Jon and I went to Europe!
We road tripped back to Utah and made it back just in time to ring in the New Year! What a good year it was. Happy 2014!
