I seem to say that every year is my best year ever. But 2013 TRULY was the best year of my life so far.
I married the most amazing man on this planet in what turned out to be an absolutely perfect celebration with our closest friends and family. I’m not exaggerating. Our wedding day was the stuff of dreams.
The awesomeness continued throughout the year with simple pleasures and just a general feeling of content I haven’t felt before. It’s quite nice.
We rounded out the year with a trip Thailand. Each of our adventures have had their own merits, so it’s hard to crown a favorite. I really want to say hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was the best, but if I’m being honest, what we saw and felt in Thailand wins. Just me and my love, enjoying a wonderful country I strongly encourage everyone to visit. I will never forget how I felt as we enjoyed our own happy hour watching the sun go down on Ao Nang after a day on Railay on one of our last days. Just *sigh*
I feel like 2013 was the year I grew into a person I’m very happy to be. I feel confident, I feel more calm, I feel loved without insecurity and I feel like everyone around me knows exactly who I am. I’m a wife now, a role I take seriously. I try to be a good friend and I try to be a hard worker who puts positivity into any situation.
Finally, I’m blessed to feel so much love and appreciation for my family, my in-laws, my friends and my colleagues.
2014 is likely to be a monumental year for us as well. We’ll be traveling to visit friends we miss in Utah and Montana. We will be buying our first home and starting our family with a dog. We will attend the wedding of my little brother to a woman I’m thrilled to call sister. And hopefully we’ll be announcing a baby on the way later in the year.
All that said, my life has become incredibly dull to everyone other than myself. I’ve never used this Tumblr to share cool internet things, so there isn’t really a point in keeping this up. The humblebrag gets old, I know, and as one friend told me yesterday, “I am such a grown up now.” Maybe I’ll read more books in 2014.
