It’s the last day of 2015, and I can’t help but feeling a bit nostalgic. This has truly been the most amazing year of my life, and probably always will be. So many things happened in 2015, and they all happened so fast.
I remember vividly sitting on my couch one year ago, eating McDonalds and watching Spider Man with Randy. Then it was 11:59 and we started the countdown. I remember thinking “This is it. This is OUR year” and it has been.
So let’s quickly reminisce like every single other person in the world, over the past year.
-I became an anchor for BYU Eleven News. I reported. produced, and then spent a semester anchoring on live TV. It was pretty sweet.
-I spent the weekends writing for even more TV news at KSL. Except this one was broadcast to more than my mom and grandma. So that was also cool.
-I got engaged to the love of my life on February 2nd. It was perfect and magical and ya’ll don’t want to hear the story again.
-I planned a wedding. Which was fun and also stressful and wonderful.
-I graduated Magna Cum Laude, from BYU.
-I landed a job at Ken Garff, THEEE greatest place ever to work. There I met my work besties Becky and Jordyn, and continually have an amazing time with them.
-I got married to my best friend on May 30th. I had been waiting SO long for this day, and to say it was the highlight of my 2015 is a complete understatement. It’s something that I can’t possibly explain. To sit in the temple with the love of my life, and know that I never have to be apart from him, was the most amazing moment of my whole life. And I think it always will be.
-We traveled to Vegas, California, and Idaho. Plus ran around Utah, hiking and discovering like crazy people.
-We watched other friends get engaged, married, and start their lives together along side us. We watched other friends take on school, go on missions, come home from missions, have babies, and all of us are growing up. It’s crazy, but so fun!
-We moved to a brand new apartment which we are obsessed with. We love our apartment, our neighbors, our ward, the city, everything.
-I spent a wholeeee bunch of time with my best friends. We have game nights, I trek down to Provo to spend time, and a few of them finally returned to me from being gone for far too long. 2015 felt like a settling period, where I adjusted and got settled into these amazing friendships.
-I got a new niece. The first niece. And she is perfection. I will spoil her absolutely rotten and I don’t care if she turns out like a crazy.
-I spent SO much time with my wonderful family, and Randy’s wonderful family. My family has come to mean more to me this year than ever before. They took Randy in as a son, and brother. And I am SO thankful for that. They supported, helped, and loved me through every moment of this year. I can’t thank them or share my love for them adequately. Joining Randy’s family was a wonderful adventure, and I am loving spending time with his brothers, chatting with his parents, getting close to my sister-in-law, and spending lots of time with extended family. We are so blessed to be in such wonderful families.
-Randy got called to be the Elders Quorum Secretary, and I’m teaching all the youths in Sunday School. It’s been a roller coaster, but I wouldn’t change a single thing about it.
-I blogged, worked, did freelance work, while Randy tackled full time school and a full time job. We were busy bees, but it was so wonderful to get to be busy together.
-We were happy. This year has been full of major changes, serious decisions, and huge adjustments. But there isn’t one single thing that I would redo, take back, or change.
I am so thankful for 2015. It’s been the best year of my life. Now, bring on 2016!
