2011: The Year of Abundant Blessings

Sorry it’s been so quiet around here lately!  I’m busy preparing for lots of exciting things in 2012… between wedding planning, moving into a new apartment, work, and putting together some new photography opportunities, I’ve been slacking on updating the blog.  I promise to do better from now on! :)

I can’t believe we’re already into February!  It seems like 2011 was a total whirlwind… so many wonderful blessings were bestowed upon me & my family this year.  I’d like to take a few minutes to share some of the highlights with you.

Kyle & I celebrated our 2-year anniversary with a delicious, home-grilled dinner… (yes, I am a grill master!)

I was able to spend  Grandma Joy’s birthday with her… and some deeeelicious cupcakes.

Miss Allison’s senior prom… didn’t she look HOT HOT HOT?!?  😉

We celebrated Buster’s 1st birthday!  He has a little birthday cookie stuck in his beard… hehehe.

Miss Allison made us all so very proud with her Salutatorian speech.  Way to go Smally!!  You rock!

Rebecca Joy Photography got a facelift!  Thanks again for all your hard work, 2nd Street Creative!!

My big sis got engaged!!!! 😀 😀 😀

I tagged along on a trip to England with Kyle & his dad… and they trusted me to help with fancy cars like this Lotus!

The night Kyle asked me to marry him!!!  It was my real-life fairytale <3

The ladies and I took a trip out to D.C. to see our long-lost friend, Kyle.  Above, in D.C. with one of my BFFs– no, we didn’t plan to be twinsies.  It just sorta happened.  Below, our adventure at Bull Run/Manassas (depending on if you’re from the North or South)…

I said YES! to the dress in NYC… and I got to meet Randy!  How fun! 😀

Turned 26 in style with some of my favorite ladies!  (I still daydream about that dessert… chocolate cake+chocolate ganache+raspberry sorbet.  YUM!!)

PINIMAGE

On Mr. Wonderful’s first trip home from Australia (he moved there at the end of summer), he took me for a spin on his new motorcycle.  I was soooo nervous!

PINIMAGE

Probably should have taken this before the end of the night… but, Josh+Sadie got married!!!!!  If you don’t remember them, here.  You’re welcome for all the cuteness.  In other news, holy smokes, my hair is long in this picture!!

PINIMAGE

I rounded out the year with a wonderful holiday season spent eating delicious meals (like the one above) with family and friends.   As I said at the beginning of this post, 2011 was a very blessed year.  I’m looking forward to a year of love, laughter and celebration in 2012…

Stay tuned for the elusive exciting things!
