goodbye 2012, hello ♥2013♥

As I look back over 2012, I am filled with a lot of emotions! 2012 was filled with lots of change and adventure, loss and sadness, life and newness, & family and love.  We are excited for what 2013 has in store for us as a couple and as a family!

We started out 2012 pretty unsure as to what the year was going to hold for us.  But God brought us a new city, new friends, new jobs, a new church... well, new everything! 2012 also included a heart breaking loss for me as I lost the only grandfather I had ever known, one of the best and most supportive, loving men in my life.  A few months after my Papaw's passing, God brought incredible life into our lives with our precious niece, Blakely Ann.  2012 also included an abundance of family visiting, filling our home with love and laughter. We also celebrated year two of our marriage! It truly has been the best year of marriage yet, although year 3 sure is off to a fantabulous start, and just might top it! 

We finished up the year in style at Rob's company NYE party at the Crowne Plaza! We got all dressed up... little black dress, collared shirt and dress pants, and headed out to the top floor of the Crowne Plaza downtown... what a view!!! The evening was filled with dinner, drinks, dancing, and of course amazing prizes! Rob won a really nice set of pots and pans, which we actually needed! Around 11, we left and went over to Matt and Leah's to ring in the new year with them at their house ♥ Today is our last day off before heading back to work tomorrow.  I have a feeling it is going to be filled with unpacking, putting all of our new things away, and watching football. I haven't been to work since the 21st of December... it is going to be good to get back to work tomorrow; I love routine! Although, I have a feeling I'll need a bit more coffee than  the average day, ha! 
Happy 2013 every one!!!
