Happy new year! I am shocked we are well into the second week of 2018. It's ridiculous to think this last year was something I had looked forward to right after my engagement in 2016, and now it's already come and gone! 2017 brought a lot of unexpected surprises and blessings for Phil and I. After getting engaged, the world kind of flipped upside down for a while. Keep reading for a recap of 2017 and scroll through some of my highlights from the past year!
January - February
March - May
Phil landed an amazing job that was closer to both our families, so we made a big decision to leave the East coast. I left my micro apartment behind so we could move in together in Colorado. This was my first and only place I lived by myself and it was so much fun to decorate it all!
June - August
Found the perfect venue for our April wedding
But I can't reveal too much 😉
September - November
How would you describe 2017?
Summarizing all the highlights from this year I would say 2017 could be best described as my year of marriage and change. There was quite a bit of upheaval when moving to Colorado and that put a lot of strain on my creative juices. In addition to all the moving and acclimating, I also began planning my wedding…from a few states away! It was a really challenging year, but so worth it!
What’s the best thing I did this year?
Top 5 Moments?
1. Celebrating my brother and his wife at their beautiful wedding
2. Moving closer to home and the adventures Phil and I had on our cross country trip
3. Starting The Bixby Lane and landing my first social event
4. Moving to Colorado and exploring
5. Celebrating Christmas with my fiancé for the last time until we’re married
What the future holds?
I can’t wait to see what kind of adventures will begin this year. I appreciate each and every one of my lovely readers that take even the briefest of moments to catch up on my blog. Going into 2018 I am just trying to live my best life everyday and be true to myself. Stepping outside of my comfort zone and not putting so much pressure on myself to be ‘perfect’ are the real goals this year. Here’s to you guys and seeing what we can achieve in 2018!
