Cherishing this year...

This has been one crazy year!  2013 was full of wonderful experiences and surprises and I can honestly say that it was the best year yet.  I was looking back at a post from the end of last year and I realized that I've fulfilled every wish for the year ahead.  I'm really proud of myself and my husband for working so hard to get where we are today.  Here's a recap of my favorite moments of 2013:

This year just started off with a bang!  We got married on February 1st, pretty much the most perfect day ever.  While we had a "courthouse" wedding, it was at the Santa Barbara courthouse, which is actually a historic landmark/mission.  We got married out in one of their gardens with about twenty of our closest family and friends.  If we had to do it again I wouldn't change a thing!


Modeling for Modcloth

I was lucky enough to model for Modcloth early in the year.  I had so much fun in their studio trying on their amazing clothes.  Plus I got to see upcoming styles for the year.  Basically, it was a dream come true :)

At the end of March Jessica of Midwest Muse and her friend Jess traveled out to California to spend a couple days with me.  We had such a wonderful time sight seeing, going to Disneyland, and shopping with Erica of Sweets and Hearts.  I wish they lived closer, I really miss them!

In early May we found out we were having a baby!  We had been trying for months so it was the most wonderful news.  This was the picture we used for our announcement.

Pretty much the same exact time we found out we were pregnant, we found out we were getting our home.  It was quite a time to celebrate!  This was definitely our dream home and I love living here, even if it meant we had to move back to the suburbs.

My dream came true in July when I found out I was having a girl!  I was really hoping for a little girl and I honestly couldn't believe it, even when it was confirmed.  I was absolutely sure I had a little boy in there!

In August my husband came home with a new family member, Rocco.  He was found on the freeway by a coworker and Kevin just couldn't say no.  He's older, has a cleft right paw, and was completely malnourished.  He's honestly my perfect little guy and over the months he's become an integral part of our family.  I'm in love!


My baby showers

With the help of my wonderful family and friends, we had two beautiful showers for our little girl.  It was so amazing to see how many people took the time to celebrate our soon to be baby girl.  I'm so thankful for every single person who came :)


Like I said, there was so much to be remembered this year.  I can't wait to see what 2014 has in store!
