Never has a year flown by as fast as 2012 did for us. In my time with friends & family last week, the one word I kept coming back to describe our move & new life in California was ADVENTURE. It’s so true. Here’s a review of our adventurous 2012.
In January, we rang in the New Year in Flagstaff, Rob saw the Grand Canyon for the first time and we pet-sit our favorite basset hound.
In February we decided to move to California, went looking for rentals, got crafty for Valentine’s Day and obsessed over this nacho & hot dog bar.
We said goodbye in March, moved to Santa Cruz, celebrated 4 years of marriage and got comfortable in our new home.
April was about exploring Santa Cruz, pet-sitting, my first trip to Chicago and a wedding.
May we went horseback riding on the beach, planned out our summer, made a succulent frame for the patio and went to a graduation.
In June I took a sister trip to San Fran, family came to Santa Cruz, and Rob turned a year older. Also met up our friends in Vegas for a 30th birthday celebration.
In July we invited some new friends over for a pie & patio party, explored some more and I took a new job in San Juan Bautista.
In August, we celebrated Heather’s birthday on the boardwalk, our friends from Arizona came out – the girls went to Napa, the boys stayed in the Cruz. Sister came back for a quick visit, too!
September was HUGE – paddle boarding, my parents visited, Sonoma for my birthday and Rob got a new job!!
Things began to slow down in October. The weather was perfect. We went kayaking with some new friends and got crafty for Halloween.
November was just as beautiful. Sipped wine in the Santa Cruz mountains, Friendsgiving and a blogging party.
In December we kicked off the holiday with the 12 dates of Christmas and went home to celebrate the holiday with our families and friends in Phoenix.
So, 2013, what do you have in store for us? More adventures we hope:)
