farewell 2011...

in 2011, 
i went back to honeymoon island,
and decided i want to be a doula.

i went to hilton head with steph and ellen, 
and went on a perfect date.

we signed the lease for our first home,
took little jack to the zoo,
and i was thrown a wonderful bachelorette party.

i watched bennett graduate,
had my senior art show,

went to outdoor movies,
and became addicted to pinterest.

we went canoeing,

we spent fall break camping with karlie and drew,
and we had our first christmas as husband and wife.

i said goodbye to my family and friends,

you have been so good to me.
i can't wait to see what you have in store...

merry christmas and off we go!

i hope everyone has a lovely holiday
a fabulous new year
and plenty of time with the ones you love most.

this is probably the last post i'll do
until after our big move on the 28th...
try not to be jealous that i'll be spending new years on the beach
with the warm sun on my face and sand between my toes : )

advent calendars

so this is what i've been up to...
making advent calendars!
i have had so much fun making them
and i think i'm going to start selling them!

you move the little candy cane from pocket to pocket each day!

and here is a different one i made...
