Two years.

Happy two year anniversary to us! In a way, it feels like the years went by so fast, and in some ways, I look back at this picture and think that we look like two kids. I couldn’t have married a more loving, caring, generous man.

In my wedding graduate post on A Practical Wedding, I said this about our wedding:

When your favorite song comes on during the reception, jump around the dance floor with your best girlfriends yelling , “OMG I’m married!!,” over and over again.

That’s exactly what our wedding felt like. Pure joy.

I love you babe, here’s to 100 more 2 year anniversaries.

Making Things Happen 2011

See all of those people?  I LOVE THEM.  They love me.  The world is a better place and my heart is full and my mind is determined and my spirit is lifted.  I can say that my life has changed, because it has, but that phrase doesn’t even start to explain the magnitude of how I am different now.  Different for the better.

My life has been turned upside down, rocked back and forth, spun around, slammed to the ground, and filled with energy. My notebook pages are scrawled with fears and ambition. A plan has been set into action.  A BIG PLAN.

This plan will include glitter and happiness and be bursting at the seams with color and laughter.

Those people are right along side of me on this journey and I’m right along side of them.  We have each other to support and be honest with.  We know each others biggest fears and we’ve seen each other cry.  Coming out of the Making Things Happen intensive, I have grown as a woman, but I’ve also watched them grow too, and because of that, we each carry around a little bit of each other.

I am determined.


In this picture, I’m a hot crying mess who has never been happier and more excited in all of her life.

Thank you Lara.

Thank you Gina.

Thank you Natalie.

A holiday tradition

As a yearly tradition, Adam and I visit the Rockefeller Christmas Tree.  We weave our way through the hoards of tourists, take a few snapshots, and buy overly indulgent fancy coffees at Starbucks (complete with full sugar syrup, whole milk, and whipped cream).

We also take pictures of each other standing in front of the tree.  This is his:

HAHAHHA.  His head is super small.  There are three dudes in the background sporting matching furry hats.  Priceless.

For mine, we went the more traditional approach, with the statue and ice skaters behind me:

My face reads, “oh dear lord, whose idea was it to come to the busiest place in all the world at Christmas time.  Quick, take the shot before someone sees me here.  Oh, and I’m sick to my stomach and high on sugar from that crazy Starbucks concoction.”
