31 in Review

 

With my 32nd birthday coming up on Friday, I've been reflecting over the past year and smiling about all of the amazing memories I made while I was 31. One of my favorite things about birthdays is that they are a fresh start, and you never quite know what amazing things may be coming your way in the year ahead. Here's a quick snapshot of some awesome things from my 31st year:

 * I started a new job in a field I've always been passionate about, in an office on one of the most famous streets in the entire world!


* I took a few girls' trips...first to Vegas...

 
How cute is it that you can see our shoes under the table?! Also, I still want that chandelier.

* ...and the second was a trip to the Hamptons.


 * I choreographed my 9th musical to keep my creative juices flowing.


* I appeared as a game show contestant, crossing a longstanding item off my bucket list!


 (And no, my episode still hasn't aired yet...but, stay tuned!)

 

* I was a bridesmaid for my dear friend, Alyssa...





 
 * And asked to be a bridesmaid for my friend, Sarah...that wedding is sure to be an amazing party!

 

* I met some amazing people, including Andy Cohen! And I'll never be able to undo that incredibly awkward leaning pose!

 
* I met a bunch of amazing bloggers, who never fail to inspire and impress me.


 

* I met my boyfriend T, a southern gent who makes a mean grilled cheese and knows his way around a guitar.


* I had my very first blog photo shoot with my #1 gal, BFF, and co-blogger...and we are still so grateful to Alex from Idalia Photography for these incredible photos!




* I hosted a bunch of theme parties, indulging my crafting and Pinterest obsessions! A few highlights included the murder mystery party:




The Neon BBQ:


And of course, the Alfresco Autumnal Brunch: 
 


And of course, I'm grateful for all of the little moments with friends and family that made up the past year:








 While it's fun to look back on the past year, I'm even more excited to see what 32 has in store!
