Highlights of 2011

With our first full year together finished, its been fun to think back on all the changes, laughter, and memories. 2011 has been good to us, and we are so excited to be starting 2012. So much can happen in a year, just look back at our last one!
January’s highlight was a trip back to Ben’s house in California, a day at the beach, and ten hours straight of holding hands. 
February marked the beginning of my climbing career and frequent trips to Salt Lake to see our favorite Dave and Sarahjane.
March was the month of being inseparable and of wearing onesies to church camp-outs.
April the wedding planning began, Mom visited, and we spent our first easter together.
May was more wedding planning, a ring finally on my finger, and picking a date. 
June sent me back to a New Hampshire filled with bridal showers, more wedding planning, and warm summer days.
July was family trips, fourth of July marches with the soon-to-be president, and missing Ben, a lot.
August welcomed the wedding of a century, the happiest two people, romantic getaways, and moving into our first apartment together.
September was starting our new life, a Utah reception, a weekend at Bear Lake, and continuing to fall in love.
October brought on the bikes, sprained ankles, and crutches. 
November welcomed birthdays, trips to the family lodge in southern Utah, and a wonderful and needed thanksgiving break. along with the best pumpkin cheesecake imaginable.
December survived finals and projects and sent us to New York City, Boston, and New Hampshire as tourists, lovers, and shepherds.
