2012. Aka the greatest year yet. {picture overload}

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Anna was in the MTC.  She and her companion (who she knew from PGHS) both had green pea coats.

Remember THIS post?  And how I was so dreading 2012?... Man, I'm so glad it came.  Even though 2012 was Anna-less (in person...we talk every week via email!) it has been the best year thus far.  

Because Anna was gone, I played with lots of friends.  Dave and Tali are great. 

I slaved away that semester and got my first 4.0 ever!

I started dating a really funny nerd who I was smit with immediately. 

He and I spent nearly every day together. 

And then I left for 6 weeks to live out of a suitcase in Italy.

I met and became friends with some of the greatest girls I know. 

And guys.  Remember Devin?

Got a sunburn in the most beautiful place (after Paris) I have ever been.  
Me and Steve.  Love him.  He would walk me back to the hotel so I wouldn't have to go alone when I had Skype dates with my man.  

Rode a gondola in lovely Venice. 
Ate WAY too much gelato (and somehow lost 10lbs?...explain that to me.)

massagi?   (on the beach in Monterosso- part of the Cinque Terre)

Then, a few of us ventured to Paris.  Oh Paris.  It was so magical in every way. 

Proof that I've seen the Mona Lisa.  At the Louvre.  Spent 6 hours there. And I still didn't see everything.

Then I flew home to the states (God bless America.  I remember being so relieved to be home)   where my mom met me in NYC.  We spent 5 glorious days there going to Live with Kelly!, The Newsies... I dragged her everywhere.  And found a new favorite shopping area in SoHo.

Came home and this guy was still here waiting for me.  

This was not a happy day, but one that changed everything.  This was the day I was so angry with Chase/my last day at Taco Amigo (where I worked more than 1/3 of my life. wowza).  

After the terrible day, we were inseparable for real.  

We got engaged in Disneyland on October 25th 2012 

Chase saw a palm tree for the first time.  He needed to hug it.

my floral business flourished, and I was blessed to do so many weddings including my own! 

so in love with the flowers.. My Auntie Fran is on the other side taking pictures from the moment she walked in the door.  I love her! 

So many wonderful best friends came to support me on my big day

Happiest day ever.  Married the love of my life!

Gained a new family

And Anna was there!  :)  Haha.  Oh, Chase.  I love him so much it hurts. 

Can't wait to see what 2013 brings... (The return of Hermana eSpencer!!!! So excited!)  Happy 2013. I hope many blessings come your way!
