I kicked off 2015 laughing my ass off with Andrea and Jackie at Kyle’s New Year’s party:Then I settled on my theme for the year: With Intention. Meaning, however I feel like I want to define it at any given time, do things WITH intention.
I spent a lot of time with my family, especially my dad. My grandpa passed away in December of 2014 and so my mother basically moved to Arizona for a few months (was it that long, really?). Dad and I ate dinner together, watched movies, put together puzzles. I absolutely LOVED the time I got to spend with him, among others, obvs. #missedmymomtootho. January also marked the 1 year anniversary of my brother Markie passing away. Time really does just keep going on. It was a hard year without him – but thanks to the endless amount of love from those around me (seriously J, I still cry when I think about coming downstairs to an orchid and note from you), I made it out okay.
This was turning point month for me. Was still soaking in the fact that my parents had moved back to the US, was going to Xtend Barre classes on the regular, swimming, eating healthier (I mean, I gave up SUGAR or lent!), and was just generally in love with myself. It was also really warm outside and the haze wasn’t all that bad.
Birthday month! My obsession with Xtend Barre only increased. Felt really good and alive. Went on two amazing work trips – one to the east coast, one to the west.
The spring was so nice this year. I got to go on lots of walks with dad. I also went on a fun road trip with J and S to see Fleetwood Mac in Las Vegas. We listened to Serial, caught up with each other and enjoyed each other’s spray tans.
Big campaign launched at work, this month was the calm before the summer storm of absolute CRAZINESS. Friends from NY came to visit me! I’ve never had out of state visitors come before – it was fun to tour my town with them.
Three big trips in a row: SLC>ATL>DCA>JFK>SLC then the next day SLC>LAX>SLC.
HIGHLIGHTS: my parent’s pool, NYC for the Pixels movie premiere, tramp sleepover in 8K degree weather (kelvin) and (saving the best for last) ARUBA with J.
Birthday month for my fave, big month of planning at work, enjoying the summer and times with friends + fam. Not to mention GORGEOUS family photos from Kirstin Roper.
The month where things were good and got REAL. Including an amazing trip with coworkers to Universal Orlando and the purchase of my first HOME. PUKING. Also, happy one year workiversary to me and the best job in the world, FTK!
What a beautiful month! It’s always a favorite of mine every year. This October I moved into my condo, went on an amazing trip to Boston (hello Hocus Pocus tour!!) and NYC with my mom (holy LEAVES), celebrated Halloween and took up a new hobby: embroidery!
Low key month – spent loads of time with my fam and getting all comfy in my house. Kicked off a few weeks of travel with a trip to the Smoky Mountains in TN for work – so. much. fun.
Visited TN, Los Angeles and Vegas! Traveled every week of December – UGH! Watched Christmas Vacation on every flight and got silver status on Delta! Wahoo! I ended the year hanging with every member of my family, babysitting puppy, scraping snow and ice off my car, seeing The Nutcracker three times and celebrating the Christmas holiday. It was a good month.
2015 was good to me. Looking forward to 2016 – theme post coming soon!
