Memories, Dreams and Reflections {2012}

Happy New Year!

I am so excited that it is 2013! Now our wedding is this year!

But before the new year begins, it is always nice to reflect on the past year. And the perfect way to do this is with Ashley Sisk's Memories, Dreams and Reflections.

That's me. Hahaha. Except my hair is growing out again for the wedding!

I Love You
My fiance drinking from a coconut on our trip to St. Lucia. This is one of my favorite pictures of him, because it was such a great day!

Still Laughing
Ohhhhh the pumpkin picking adventure...

Winter Wonderland
Hopefully it will snow again soon!

How we celebrated my 25th birthday!

This little guy was our friend on vacation. But not too close of a friend - I'm terribly allergic to cats!

I Was Inspired
By a tutorial on Ashley Sisk's blog :)

Spring Fever
I love this city in the spring and summer!

Travel or Vacation
Waking up and enjoying a cup of tea on a hazy morning in St. Lucia.

Summer Days
Fireworks off of Navy Pier. I am really going to miss watching these from our window next summer.

A Day in My Life
I try to craft every day. It doesn't always happen, but I try!

All Smiles

Little felt gingerbread men

Autumn Harvest
This fall, we went pumpkin picking (and ended up with just gourds) and we also bought out wedding bands for our October wedding!

Family or Home
Spending the weekend at home for Labor Day :)


The beginning of winter. And I love that these berries look like confetti!

Let's Do It Again
We loved this costume so much it may be making a repeat preformance next year!

I Miss You

My family

We ran across this art installation while going for a walk along Michigan Ave. Plus, this is one of my favorite views of the city!

Dress Up
Okay, I didn't take it because I'm in it (and please excuse my "I just tried on 12 wedding veils hair!") But this is my maid of honor and I trying on bridesmaids dresses for my wedding.

My "where I lived bracelet". Right now there are charms for Chicago and New York. Soon I'll get a charm for Baton Rouge!

Visiting the tree in Daley Plaza.

My Favorite
My favorite fruit - clementines!

Don't Ever Change
Taking pictures :)

Just Because, So There
Sue at the Field Museum :)

Hopes and Dreams

Dreaming about being married to him at the end of this year!
