Welcome 2012

Happy New Year everyone!
Christmas in PA was wonderful, full vacation recap coming soon. For now, to ring in the new year, I give you a quick, abbreviated recap of 2011. Which was a pretty great year, if I do say so myself.

January:
Brett and I had been engaged for 6 months and living in VA. I worked at an adoption agency, he worked at a church. Then I got the fateful call saying I got the child life position in FL. I said yes and Brett and I prepared for the big move down south.

I also seem to have 0 photos from this month.

February:
Brett and I travel to PA to celebrate my 25th birthday and take our engagement pics

We also travel to FL to look at apartments and plan our big move!

March:
I started my job as a child life specialist at a children’s hospital in south Florida

2 weeks after moving to FL I traveled back to DC to watch my sister run the National Marathon and surprise my mom for her birthday.

April:
Brett and I settle in FL life and begin to explore our new town. We also celebrate Brett’s first FL birthday!

May:
Traveled back to PA for my wedding shower and to celebrate 2 of my sister’s birthdays. Last time home as a single woman!

June:
Happiest month of my life so far. The love of my life and I get married in NY!

Then traveled to Costa Rica for our honeymoon.

July:
Hubs and I realize that summer in FL is HOT. And we escape to our island as much as possible.

August:
My parents came down to FL for our first married visit.

Then we traveled to Long Island for the second Becker summer wedding of hub’s brother.

September:
The running/yogurt club is born. Suddenly, running has never been more fun.

October:
Brett and I quickly realize that fall in FL basically equals 24/7 rain.

I decide to “adopt” a street cat and name him Figaro. I then dress up as same cat for Halloween.

November:
This was probably our busiest month. It started off with a fun visit from my sister (where she too decided to take the plunge and move to the sunshine state! The big move comes next week!)

Then hubs and I jumped on a plane to VA for Brett’s good friend’s wedding. There, we get to experience fall and see the gorgeous leaves for the first time this season.

We ended the month by traveling to Long Island for a Becker style Thanksgiving.

There, we made a quick trip into NYC to visit our “city of love.”

December:
Brett and I get our first fake Christmas tree and do our best to make our FL apartment look festive.

Then we got the exciting news that my big sis got engaged!

We ended the year with a trip to PA to celebrate Christmas with my family.

This has been one exciting year and I have a feeling that 2012 is going to be even better!

Happy New Year!
