2007 In A Recap

The year 2007 is on the verge of ending and boy was it a busy and amazing year! So many great things happened this year that I am not sure that 2008 can top it! The Lord had blessed us so much. David and I started out the year in the middle of all our wedding planning. It was crunch time to get everything done. All the final details were coming together. We did our engagement pictures, then the bridal shower and bachelor/bachlorette parties. After a year of planning, on April 21st we got married and what a beautiful day it was. All of my family came out from Indiana and from England. I saw my grandma who I hadn't seen in probably 6 years. I saw my aunt and uncle who I hadn't seen since I was 2. I didn't even remember them. The day was so much better than I could have ever anticipated!

After the wedding, we promptly hopped on a plane and went on our honeymoon to Kauai, Hi for 5 days and then 3 days in Honolulu. It is one of the most beautiful places that I have been to on this earth! It was relaxing, fun, adventurous and we had some amazing food as well! We enjoyed it so much that we are planning on going back in July with some friends of ours.

The summer was a blur with me moving into David's apartment and unpacking. We got our precious kitty Cali in May. With all of the adjustments and settling in the summer went by so quickly. We ended the summer with David's birthday. He turned 27 this year and is getting closer and closer to 30.

We ended the year on a great note. Melissa & Troy had their baby Jackson, in November. He is our first nephew and boy is he cute and so adorable especially when he smiles. It's so hard not to spoil him with clothes and other gifts. It was our first Christmas being married and we were busy with parties and other Christmas events.

Looking back the year went by so quickly. I am sure that 2008 will be go by just as fast and be memorable as well. We are going to Miami and then celebrating our first anniversary a couple of months later. We are planning a short trip to Santa Barbara for the weekend to celebrate. We aren't doing anything extravagant, so we can save our vacation hours for our trip to Hawaii in July. We are also thinking about spending next Christmas with my family in England. My parents gave us a gift certificate for American Airlines for Christmas. I am thinking they gave it to us as we initially had told them we didn't think we would be able to go due to how expensive it is. After getting the gift card, we have talked it over and I think we are going ahead and go for it! Right now is the perfect timing, as we don't have any kids and both of us are making good money. My grandma is doing ok health wise except for the flu she has right now. We really don't know how much longer she is going to be with us. Hopefully many years, but you really never know. So, it looks like we will be spending next Christmas in England!

I am definitely looking forward to 2008! Well we will soon be off to our friends the A's place to ring in the new year. Goodbye 2007! Hello 2008!
