Where did the time go? I know, I know we’re all asking ourselves that question today, but I swear the years just keep going faster. We’re all agreed on that, right? Good. Now I can leave you with a long post recapping what I think was Jeff and I’s best year yet!

In fact, I started this little blog almost a year ago and in that time I think I managed to capture all of our favorite moments of 2013 (much to Jeff’s dismay, but he’ll thank me for it later 🙂 ). So before you head out for your big new year’s party, I highly recommend you take a quick look at our year-end review. I mean it’s probably more exciting than any other plans you might have to ring in 2014. 😉

I’ll make it quick, but if you’ve been following along you may remember…

When Jeff and I we’re lucky to experience the inauguration of President Obama on a cold January Day,

Innauguration Edited 2

Or when we started preparing Jeff’s house for our move-in day, including a little room just for me

Dressing Room - Office 1

(the room even includes a desk Jeff spent an entire weekend refurbishing),

Desk After 2

and when Jeff bravely gave me free reign over decorating the newly remodeled bathroom (he might still be regretting it),

Bathroom After 6

then the big move-in day came and went,

Moving Day 3

 and it was back to home-renovations including a shiny new (sort of) front door, and freshly painted kitchen cabinets,

Kitchen Before and After

but we also managed to fit in some summer fun along the way too,

CR 2013 8

 before we thought it would be a good idea to try to make our own countertops (and by “we,” I mean Jeff),

Concrete Countertops 7

 but we took a break from that for my favorite part of the whole year, you know, that time we got ENGAGED!


 After that big day, we sort of spent the next few weeks relishing in the news by celebrating with our parents in Texas and our friends here in D.C.,

Engagement Party 5

but then it was back to work on what Jeff hoped would be the finishing touches on our new countertops,

Broken Countertops 2

^^I would call this a fail. 🙁 ^^

so after that small setback, we basically took the rest of the year off (from home renovations, turns out we can’t afford not to work) traveling to New York for a wedding and Kansas City to spend time with my family for Thanksgiving,

where we also got to take some beautiful engagement photos captured by my talented cousin,

and last, but certainly not least, we celebrated the holiday season with family, friends, and lots of pretty greenery!

Christmas Caroling 10

Oh and I almost made it through this little recap without mentioning the two most important members of our household, but I think it goes without saying that we pretty much spent the entire year spoiling our little pups like crazy.

^^How could you not?^^

Okay, I think I got it all, at least the big stuff anyway.

I have a feeling 2014 isn’t going to find our little household slowing down any, but with any luck we’ll continue to make progress on home renovations, (countertops maybe?) and plan a wedding day that highlights our love and commitment. I’m not planning on putting my camera down anytime soon, so I’ll be sure to keep you posted along the way.

Happy New Year! Best wishes for 2014!
