My 2013 was HUGE and crazy epic! I had three pretty big life events all packed into this itty-bitty year.
1) I totally got engaged
Cody and I planned a trip out to San Diego to celebrate our one year anniversary of dating. I thought it was just going to be a cute little romantic getaway, but it turned out that he had snuck a couple of rings out their with us. We had talked a little bit about getting married, but I had no idea that he had already purchased the rings and was getting ready to propose. Needless to say, I was completely shocked when he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. It was perfectly romantic too. We were standing on a bridge surrounded by fog. The lights had huge halos from the mist and we could smell the ocean. I was taken off guard when he pulled out the ring and my only response was “where did you get that?” Ha – I’m such a keeper, lol. Minutes after he asked, we saw some kids with a Polaroid camera. They took our picture and we have it hanging on our fridge. (Look how cute and happy and in love we are!)
I’m a little bit of a late bloomer with certain things, and college was definitely something that I waited around to take care of. I finally graduated with my BS in psychology in May- yay! I was pretty proud of myself because I was the first person in my family to get a degree, and I had worked really hard the last several years to get it.
3) Moved to Portland
Cody and I moved to Portland from SLC in July this year. It was a huge move for both of us, and yet everything seemed to just fall into place. We live in the most amazing apartment in the world that overlooks the city. We had to say goodbye to some super amazing people in SLC, but we lucked out with meeting a lot of new friends out here.
So thank you, 2013. You were a super fabulous year and I’m going to miss you lots and lots and lots!
