2013 — without a doubt — was one of the best years of my life. It was packed full of adventure, opportunity and love! Number one on the list for this year was marrying the love of my life in a beautiful, “just the two of us” wedding by the water in Jamaica.
We got engaged last Christmas and it was a whirlwind up until the wedding in May. The planning (very little), fun (bridal showers!) and insights (many!) made for an insanely great first half of the year.
Let me list the highlights for me of the year in chronological (mostly) order:
