It's time to remember the top events of 2011. My, what a year it has been. Probably the craziest, most memorable year of my life thus far. :)
Last year I gave a recap of 2011 which I loved looking back on. I used to always give yearly Top 10's on MySpace. Yes, MySpace. How times have changed. So I guess now I'll make it a blog tradition. Except for there's more than 10...
Besides the Top Three or so there's not really an order. I tried to make it an order but it just wasn't possible. Here goes.
Aaron and Molly, Chris and Erica, Derrick and Renee, Ricky and Britney - such a fun year of weddings! Marriage = awesome.
13. North Augusta Easter Trip
Every year my family goes to visit my cousins in North Augusta for Easter. It is SO FUN. This year was even more fun because I got to take a friend for the first time. A friend who also happened to be my husband. :)
12. Beach Trips with the Family
North Myrtle Beach with my side of the family and all my cousins, and Topsail Beach with Jordan's side. Those trips were amazing. I'm so thankful for our family!
11. Our First Holidays
I never knew how awesome it would be to share that special time of year with my husband. We had a blast visiting all of our family and going on the Thanksgiving beach trip. Then our Christmas was AMAZING! It was such a perfect way to finish out the year. So thankful that I get to do it again next year, and forever. :)
10. My First Earthquake
This had to make the list. I mean, an earthquake in NC? That's insane. I'll never forget that extremely weird day.
Spending time with my dearest friends before the wedding was so special to me. I am overly blessed with uplifting and supportive women in my life. I miss that time because we got to hang out so much! LOVE my friends!
Definitely never thought this would happen this year. Or maybe ever. It was a crazy trip and such a wonderful experience for us. A part of us will always be there....literally.
Ahhh I wanna go back. Right now. I will never forget the amazing time we had during that first week of marriage. So special. I also now just realized that I never finished blogging about it. Hmm. Maybe I can share some more pics sometime!
You knew this was going to be #1. How could it not be? WE GOT MARRIED! Best day ever. I will never tire of looking at the pictures or watching the video. And I am so ridiculously blessed with this man whom I now call my husband. God, You are the perfect matchmaker. No one else could have brought two people together like He did. I am eternally grateful. And eternally head over heels blissfully in love with Jordan Shelley.
Wow. I can't believe 2011 is ending. How have we been married for over 9 months? This has been the fastest year. I bet life just gets faster and faster.
I am so pumped to see what God has in store for my life in 2012. I want it all to be for His glory - I mean that's the only reason I'm LIVING right now - to give Him glory. I want the theme of 2012 to be surrender to Him. (As it should be all the time.) But I'll talk about that tomorrow...
