2016 has personally been the best year of my life, and I am so incredibly grateful for all of it.
From getting engaged to the most amazing man and love of my life to moving our lives across the country for our next grand adventure, and to even finding a small creative outlet in these Plogs and my YouTube channel, I am just so gosh darn lucky.
Looking back and gathering photos of this year’s highlights has me teary eyed with joy, so of course I wanted to share with you all 🙂
Started off the year just right with some Miss Ali snuggles 😉
A visit to Austin, TX in March to visit my best friend (roommate, heterosexual partner for life, MOH) always hits the spot!
April: The month I visited Portland, OR and found the Grilled Cheese truck Ben and Lauren ate at during her hometown date!!! (The Bachelor…anyone?)
May was VERY exciting, as BOTH of my brothers graduated, I visited New Orleans for one of them, and there was a party 🙂
June 6th, 2016…. my favorite month 🙂
And then July, the month we moved our lives across the country to Seattle!
There was lots of road…
A few monuments to see…
Some gorgeous views…
Bucket list cross-offs in Yellowstone National Park…
And to end the journey, a toast to us with champagne in water glasses 🙂
P.S. We went back to get the cats and Jack had to blow on Hippos face for the 6.5 hour flight to keep her calm and I just feel this image sums up everything (made complete by the look on the innocent passenger’s face in the background).
Don’t worry though, Hippo now can’t stop yelling about how much she loves Seattle 🙂
We then made August the month we took Seattle by storm 🙂
August is also the month I uploaded my first Plog! You can see it HERE!
In September, my Mom came to visit us, took our engagement photos, and we visited the San Juan islands together!
October = our favorite couple’s Halloween costume to date 🙂 🎈
We spent a lovely November with friends and family around the Thanksgiving table…
AND I SAID YES TO MY DRESS!!!
Now here we are in December; a month that celebrates my absolute FAVORITE holiday spent with so many loved ones 🙂
Here we are with a really big tree in NYC…
We took a visit to Maine where (SNEAK PEAK) Jack and I will say “I do” in just a few short months…
And here are all those loved ones I was talking about 🙂
2017, you have some pretty big shoes to fill 🙂
