Life Lately

So much has happened in the past 6 months that I figured I would share a little bit of an update with you all.

1. You probably know and M and I moved across the country to Missouri back in August, 2013. Since then, we have just been trying to get the house all settled.

2. We added two new members to our family. Meet Florence and Helo:

3. We chose the wedding venue of our dreams which we will be married in June, 2014.

4. I traveled east to attend Cassie & Peter's wedding in Greenville. This girl has been such a blessing to me; it still does not seem real that we met through instagram!

5. M and I started our first garden together.

6. I had my bridal shower in Arizona with some of my sweet friends and family.

7. We started attending a small little church plant that has been so great for M and I. We have met some of our closest friends through it.

8. We finished pre-marital counseling.

9. We got our engagement photos done by the lovely Melissa Lin Ellis.

10. I went gluten free after years of stomach troubles and it has made a HUGE difference.

11. We attended the True False Film Festival, a huge documentary film event here in town.

12. My best friend got married.

13. M’s photo business has taken off.

14. I survived a Midwest winter- barely. 

15. We purchased our wedding bands; so in love. What a beautiful reminder of our promise to each other. 

16. We visited California for Thanksgiving and shortly after (on New Years Eve) M’s brother got engaged. I’m going to have a new brother and a sister now before the end of the year!

17. I started my 101 in 1001 (which I will post soon). One of my goals was to give out homeless care packages. This has taken off for us and we have given away over 10 now, and made many more thanks to generous donations. Read more about how you can get involved here.

This recap really reminds me how incredibly blessed and fortunate I am. What have all of you been up to? I would love to hear from you! Please remember to follow me via Bloglovin' (see sidebar) as my link has changed!
