2012 was a big year for me. I graduated from college, moved in with my Tommy (and we celebrated our 5 years!), got a cat, and started working full time. It's been a year full of transitioning into an adult, which is both really great, and also a little scary. But I've already got some ideas in mind for 2013, and can't wait for some new scary/awesome changes.

Here are some highlights form this year, from the earliest to most recent.

My counter reached our million dollar goal for the year! Such a great group of ladies. 

The lovely Hannah created my blog design! She was such a dream to work with. 

Tommy and I moved into our own little place. While the house itself has had some issues, it has been really awesome having a place together. 

 Graduation! Wooo! 

For my birthday, Tommy and I visited the Chihuly exhibit in Seattle. It was so beautiful, definitely one of the coolest art galleries I have seen! 

Seeing Fiona Apple in concert again was amazing! It was so awesome to watch her perform her new material. I'm listening to her new album as I create this post actually :). 

I surprised Tommy with Atticus. Definitely one of the best things about this year.

I upgraded my phone and got an Iphone! Silly to think of this as a favorite thing about 2012? Maybe. But com'on...instagram! 

Two of my good friends (Brittney and Megan) got married within a few weeks of each other! 

Chopped off my hair! Yes, this was a big deal. haha. 

Saw Sigur Ros in concert, so amazing.

Celebrated Tommy's 23rd birthday at one of his favorite restaurants.

Continued the tradition of making roughly a million Christmas cookies for friends and family!

Overall, it has been a great year. Let's go 2013, I'm ready for you!

  2. I found your blog over at Lemons,Avocados and the Bay which is crazy because I also went to Western! I graduated a year and a half ago. My husband and I live in Mount Vernon now but I'm in Bellingham all the time. It's a funny, small world :)

    Your year looks like it was pretty amazing! In a couple of weeks we're going to do a glass blowing class in Seattle and I really want to go to Chiuley exhibit before hand. Everyone says it is gorgeous!
