Wow, sometimes I want to pinch myself . . . am I really turning 27 next week?! This last year has been a-m-a-zing. There have been so many special moments and adventures that I will remember forever. So, in lieu of discussing my 26 while 26 goals list (which I never got around to making last year) , I wanted to take this minute to do a quick roundup of 26 of my favorite moments in the last year – pretty much in chronological order ;-)
Throwing our first game night and laughing out loud for hours with friends
Trying on wedding dresses and crying when I found the right one
Planning a DIY wedding in 5 months
So I didn’t have to wait too long to marry this amazing guy
Writing my vows
And then reading them out loud while trying to keep it together
Spending 7 amazing days in beautiful Hawaii for our honeymoon
Where I learned how to surf
And ride a moped
And tasted delicious food and made arts and crafts a fun luau
Going to a Danny Elfman concert and being surprised when Tim Burton walked on stage
Visiting Sea World for the first time
Conquering my fear of eating sushi
Celebrating our first Christmas as a married couple
Visiting the Jelly Belly factory
Discovering Skillshare and all its amazing classes
Snowboarding down Big Bear mountain without a single fall!
But not as much as completing my sixth half marathon and getting a satisfying personal best time.
Discovering Menchies frozen yogurt (yes it made the list, yes it really is that good)
Feeling uplifted by Wednesday night bible studies.
Spending an afternoon with friends in Malibu
Visiting Washington D.C. again and seeing it with brand new eyes.
Fireworks at Angels Stadium
Seeing a drive-in movie
Attending 5 amazing weddings (other than my own-ha!) What can I say? I’m a cheeseball and I love weddings!
If this is 26, 27 is going to be a PARTY! :-)
