Farewell 2009, you will be missed.

It seems this past year of 2009 has gone by quite swiftly. I have compiled a list of why 2009 was so wonderful and why it will be truly missed.
  • We got to go to New Mexico and hang out with wonderful people on New Years. Although our car broke down on the way there, it ended up being ok because we got a new to us car!
  • We started planning our trip to Europe. I always love the beginning of exciting plans.
  • One of my best friends, Desiree, got married to her eternal companion in the Snow Flake Temple.
  • I turned a whopping 22 years old!
  • We had a great trip to San Diego for our 2 year wedding anniversary!
  • We tried out weight watchers so we could live a healthier lifestyle. We soon found out it wasn't for us, but it definitely taught us a lot about what we were putting in our bodies.
  • We got to go to Seattle to see my brother Brant graduate from College.
  • We met our awesome new friends, Andy and Ashley. We ♥ them.
  • We started playing Tennis with our new friends.
  • We started going back to school and realized it wasn't so bad after all.
  • We discovered Glee and it soon became a new obsession (for me anyway).
  • We got to go to Disneyland with our awesome new friends for my first time ever and Tommy's 25th birthday!
  • I got a new awesome camera.
  • My sister Carla had her perfect little boy Connor.
  • We got to go back to B-town New Mexico to visit my parents and make a trip to the Bar-D Chuckwagon.
  • My Photo was chosen to be on a Jones Soda bottle.
  • We went camping with Tommy's family before Tommy's brother Taylor goes on his mission.
  • We had a wonderful holiday season with lots of food, love, and family.
Reasons I'm looking forward to 2010:
  • Um, hello, our trip to Ireland, Scotland and England!
  • Our 3rd wedding anniversary and the time that Tommy says we can get new kitchen pans!
  • Finding out more about myself and how much I love my husband.
  • Developing my photography skills and business.
  • Starting a family.

Christmas Photo Shoot!

A couple days after Thanksgiving, we had a short photo shoot for our Christmas cards. It was a super windy day but my sister-in-law Charlotte was able to get some really good pictures for us anyway. I didn't post the one we are going to be using, you will just have to be surprised!

Thank you Charlotte, we love you!
