Top 10 Family Highlights From 2018

What an incredible year!! My husband and I sure had a great year. As I reflect on the past year and look forward to what 2019 has in store, I wanted to share our top 10 favorite memories.

1.) Our move from Columbus, Oh back home to Michigan! We moved back to be by our families.

2.) We got our sweet, sweet pup. Her name is Maui because that is where we honeymooned. We got her in June as a birthday present for me. Such a fun gift!

3.) Getting my first digital camera and having fun with it!

4.) Going to Orange Beach, AL with my hubs and grandparents. Such a fun vacation and great way to spend quality time with them!

5.) Buying our first home together. What a joy! A long process but very worth it. I love making a house feel like a home.

6.) Being in some of my best friends weddings. Being a bridesmaid is literally so fun!

7.) Going to Newport, RI for a wedding and exploring around! David and I took this little lime green topless buggy around the island. What a fun time! Such a beautiful area.

8.) My hubby and I took a trip to Mackinaw Island for my birthday getaway. It was so much fun! We of course, biked around the island. We got to see the beautiful Arch Rock and made lots of wonderful memories together.

9.) I worked many of weddings. It’s one of my passions to create a beautiful day. I love how each wedding is so different and represents the couple so we’ll!

10.) So I saved the very best for last. We found out we will be parents in 2019!!! We are having a little baby boy in the Spring. What a blessing!!

I am looking so forward to 2019. Thank you for reading my post and feel feee to give me a follow/comment/like and I’ll check out your blog as well!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by 🙂

10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me

I love these kinds of posts. I always love learning fun facts about people. I think it is so awesome how we are all so uniquely different and that’s what makes life fun! So here is my list.

1.) I lived in Columbus, Ohio for a year after college graduation.

2.) I like to keep my blog posts (for the most part) simple, direct and to the point. Unless, elaboration is necessary. I just enjoy small paragraphs or lists. Its a lot easier to read in my opinion.

3.) I don’t like pop. The fizz freaks me out.

4.) I have never ordered a salad from a restaurant. I still think eating leaves as a human is a weird concept but it works for a lot of people! (Which is great) I realize I’m in the minority here.

5.) I traveled all over the U.S. growing up. My family had a motorhome and we were always going on trips. I have such fond memories from my childhood. I’m not sure if I actually ever celebrated a birthday at home growing up, we were always on the go. (Not complaining!)

6.) Writing is a true passion and creative outlet for me.

7.) I transferred twice in college and graduated in 4 years.

8.) I’m a board game/cards fanatic. Uno, Euchre, Scrabble, anything! Love it.

9.) I played ice hockey growing up. I threw discus and shot put in High School, as well as golf and basketball.

10.) I liked High School more than College. Most times, its the reverse.

Let me know if we have anything in common or any questions you have for me. I truly hope you have a wonderful rest of your day!

Word of the Year

New year, new blog!

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am really glad you’re here. One of my new years resolutions was to start a blog, again. A couple years ago I created a blog but I wasn’t consistent, determined or very diligent with it. It failed. I deleted it and was done blogging. I got discouraged. So after a few years, I have decided to start again with a different outlook. I am creating this blog for investing in myself, growing, engaging with others, sharing my adventures, sharing my lifestyle and having fun with it! I plan to be consistent, be myself and be passionate about the topics I write posts on. I appreciate when people are down to earth so that is my goal! With all that being said, my word of the year is “grow,” for a couple of reasons. I want to grow as a person, a wife, a Christian, a daughter and as a friend. I am also ‘grow’ing a baby in my tummy! What a blessing that is. 2019 is going to be the best year yet!!
