I only started this blog a couple of months ago, but I still thought I’d do a “year in review” type post to document my year and share it with all of you. 2013 was quite busy, but it was full of beautiful memories! So, here are a few highlights from each month:
Daniel started his new job as the web designer at the NRCC on Capitol Hill.
Daniel and I took a pre-busy season weekend getaway to Brampton Inn Bed & Breakfast in Chestertown, MD.
We spent a weekend staying in DC to play “tourist” for Daniel’s birthday.
We had our second annual Valentine’s Day fondue dinner at home.
I explored Nashville with my friends Brittany and Catherine.
We celebrated Easter by attending a service and going out for brunch in Old Town Alexandria.
My cousin Josh and his wife Meredith came to visit us and see the cherry blossoms in DC.
We hiked with our good friends Kaitlin and Erik at Great Falls National Park.
We made our first car purchase (due to me unfortunately wrecking the car given to us by my parents).
We traveled to Seattle for sightseeing….
…and to Alaska to spend time with great friends.
Our friend Scott came to visit!
We explored Baltimore and the National Aquarium.
My family visited for the week for Fourth of July. We all went to Williamsburg, VA together.
I traveled to Billings, Montana to see my friends Emilie and Andy tie the knot!
Elizabeth (my sister) came to visit!
We visited my cousin and his wife (and very good friends!) at their home in Wake Forest, NC.
I visited Charleston, SC with my friend Becca for a fun-filled girls’ weekend!
We visited family in Texas.
We traveled to New England.
Ellen (my other sister) came to visit us!
We spent a weekend exploring Skyline Drive and all of the beauty that Virginia in the Fall has to offer.
We spent Thanksgiving week in a lake house near Nashville, TN with Daniel’s family.
I became a CPA!
We spent half the month in Texas with our families celebrating Christmas.
Whew! What a good, fun-filled year! I didn’t even include all of our visitors or all of the fun we had around DC…. This post reminds me of how much we are blessed and all that we have to be thankful for. 2013 was beautiful. 2014, I’m ready for you!
