A Fresh Start

I just LOVE ringing in a new year! It feels like a fresh start, a chance to improve and grow and change. Levi and I are making A LOT of changes in 2012. Some are very scary, but they're all very exciting. I plan on savoring this year and watching how everything unfolds, watching how God takes care of us and blesses us in 2012, watching my faith in Him grow. This year will be incredible!!

And now a little recap of 2011, which brought plenty of changes of its own:

Our year started out with a wedding, which I did all the beautiful flowers for.

We took our honeymoon in our favorite city, San Francisco.

We celebrated our first Valentine's Day as a married couple.

We took a mini-moon to Cambria (and went to the central coast twice more later in the year).

I invented grapefruit pizza (speaking of, I really need to make this again. Soooooo good.)

I had a blogger weekend with Camilla, Stacey, and Jenny May, and it was awesoooooome.

We sat.

We tried Intelligentsia for the first time, and it was really really good.

We sent out lots and lots of thank you cards (and I'm pretty sure we lost a list of people to thank, which makes me feel like a horrible person), and we received the best thank you for the thank you ever.

Stacey came down in April, and we had a really fun friend date. I love that girl. She is seriously one of my very best friends. She came down again in November, and our husbands got to meet.

We celebrated Easter, and I kicked the crap out of a piñata.

We had our picture taken by Kim and André in Abbot Kinney.

I helped throw a baby shower for my sister-in-law and brother.

I turned 29 and had a Tangled birthday party.

We went to Portland.

I started doing the Blossom feautres for The Violet.

We got a king sized bed!!!!

Stacey and I went to the Bay Area to visit Camilla (Stacey's posts on that trip: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7).

I had an important epiphany at a Bon Iver concert.

We also went to San Francisco to celebrate Camilla's wedding (posts on that trip are coming in 2012!).

And lots and lots of other things. Happy New Year to you all!
