Wow what a year! Can you believe that another year has come and gone and now we are looking at 2019. I’ve done this for the last couple of years and I find that it helps me to reflect on the past year. This past year held BIG changes and plenty of UPS and DOWNS.
Let’s recap 2018:
2018 was a HUGE year for Robert and I. We finalized wedding plans and found a place to live after we got married. There were so many firsts for us and I loved getting to spend them with Robert as my husband for the last 6 months of the year.
I kicked off the new year with a trip to the Malibu Wine Safari with my bff/adventure buddy! This little day trip was a lot of fun and I even got to feed some animals.
Robert and I had our cake tasting and picked out the type of cake we wanted for our wedding day.
We also found a place to live and Robert moved in!
We celebrated Robert’s birthday by going to a Ducks hockey game.
My bridal shower month! I loved everything about my bridal shower and thought my mom did a fantastic job with everything. You can see more pictures from the day here.
My BACHELORETTE PARTY. We went to Vegas and partied it up!
BEST month yet! This was my wedding month! Everything was a dream come true and all the ups and downs and tears that went into planing paid off.
We celebrated our honeymoon in Aruba!
AND we got private access to California Adventures Pixar Pier before it opened to the public (this was part of Robert’s wedding gift from me).
We celebrated my birthday in Palm Springs and got to see Dylan Scott in concert.
Went to the OC Fair!
Ran a 5k marathon on Labor Day over the bridge.
Went to the pumpkin patch! You can read all about it here.
And went to Santa Ynez for a wine birthday party! You can read all about my wine tasting weekend here.
Robert and I went to Nashville and crossed another place off our destination bucket list!
I was in a wedding (for the first time ever in my life)!
I also experienced my first Christmas as a married gal!
As you can see from the little bit I’ve shown, 2018 was a wild and crazy ride, from the wedding to moving to experiencing life as it gets thrown at us. There were so many AMAZING times and there were some lows that I have chosen not to share at this time. 2018 was a year I will never forget and will always remember it as the year I made the best decision of my life, marrying my soul mate.
2019 will continue to be a year of firsts for us, but I’m hoping it will be a less hectic year. I’m still hoping to expand on my blogging and become more consistent with posting and engaging with all of you! I also am trying to plan our 1 year anniversary trip and am so close to booking!
I hope y’all had an amazing year and I can’t wait to grow and shine with y’all in 2019!
