Thank you, 2012.

2012 was quite possibly the best year of my life. It was a year of planning, excitement and anticipation. 2012 was certainly a year of firsts. My first SXSW conference and ACL Festival to attend, running my first 5K {Bearathon}, visiting Nashville for the first time, and celebrating my first birthday, Thanksgiving and Christmas as a married person.

Wedding planning, dress fittings, apartment hunting, bridal showers and one heck of a bachelorette party. Attending other friends' weddings, joining a church as a couple, Thomas moving to Austin {ending our long-distance relationship forever!}, and celebrating Thomas' graduation from grad school.

2012 is the year I became a wife. The year my last name changed and I moved in with a boy. The year we honeymooned for a week in Cancun and then started our forever-life together.

Thank you, 2012, for all the joy you've brought. Life is so good, and even when it isn't, we know that the Lord has us right in the center of His will.

To our amazing family and friends - thank you for walking with us every step of the way. So many things this year would not have been possible without your love, prayers and encouragement.

Happy New Year, everyone. Here's to 2013. Be blessed!
