In honor of my birthday and in ode to the past year I decided to post one (or two...) picture for each of the past 12 months. 23 was a year that may possibly never be topped (hello marriage, new house, new pup), but I am hoping 24 gives it a run for it's money. Memory Lane here we go...
This time last year I was celebrating with all these pretty ladies my engagement! I can't believe it is already a year later and I'm married now!
September is when school gets in full swing, but we still make time to see my parents when they decide to come to town!
We took engagement pictures last October - I am still obsessed with how they turned out!
November of Second Year is the White Coat Ceremony - where we are deemed clinicians and officially made able to start seeing patients come January. Both super exciting...and absolutely terrifying. We realized both how much we had learned but also how much we had to get down in the next two months!
Last year will forever be deemed the year of my friends getting married, ending with one of my very best friends, Natalie, getting married in December in the most perfect Winter Wedding.
Because you all haven't met my second pupper, here is my family's precious Golden Retriever, Honey, in her annual Christmas photo!
I began 2017 with a trip to San Diego, where I saw these cute Sea Lions bathing in the sun! It was my first time to California and the coast was absolutely beautiful!
In March Austin graduated from Fire Academy, ending a 5-month period of intense training to become a Firefighter. I am so proud of him for finding his niche and excelling!
April was filled with the most precious memories of wedding showers, celebration with family and friends and this moment in Dallas with my best gals at my Bachelorette Party. So thankful for each of these ladies!
May 2017 was probably the best month of my life. Austin and I got to hang out with this crazy group for the best celebration we could have ever imagined!
Not only did we get married and move in to our first home together, but May is also when this fluff ball joined our little family. LOOK HOW LITTLE SHE WAS.
...just one more. The first picture I ever took with her!
June began a month of quite a bit of exploring, even in the middle of summer semester. We started off with a weekend in Dallas with all my fellow Optometry nerds!
Later in June I spent a week in one of favorite cities in all of the USA, Washington D.C.
To top off the end of another semester, Austin and I took a trip to Colorado in July - rounding out my last full month of being 23!
