2014 was an amazing year for me.

It started out with a bang!
 My best friend ask me to marry him on our anniversary!  

We added a new addition to our little family. sweet Luna 

[Joey still loves his little sister]

somewhere this year, in what seems like the blink of an eye, our kitten became a cat

A Tornado hit my mom's house.  Now, this does not fall under the "this was amazing" file, but being able to see a community really come together and help was amazing. It definitely restored my faith in people. 

I'd also like to brag about having the best friends ever who also came and helped clean up.  

Many adventures took place this year.

Josh, Eric & I traveled to Atlanta for the weekend opening of Wish I Was Here
[oh, and geek out moment! Zach Braff favorited Josh's tweet!]

A HUGE dream of mine was marked off of my bucket list!
I was able to see Garth Brooks live!! 

I married my best friend. 

& had a kick-ass honey moon in Tennessee!

Bring it on, 2015.

I still jam to NSYNC's Christmas album...judge me if you must.

This man can do no wrong. Such a beautiful rendition of a classic.

Part of my heart will forever reside in Tennessee. This is a childhood favorite of mine that has not outworn its welcome.

I have loved Dolly my entire life.

Christmas isn't a season. It's a feeling.

Positive vibes for a Tuesday.

 Lets just chalk that up to wisdom comes with age ;)

a day late...better late than never...right?

Zombie- Jamie T

The Airborne Toxic Event is on my bucket list of bands to see. 

The Mixed Tape- Jack's Mannequin
I woke up with this song in my head today.
How could I post it?

The Adventure- Angels and Airwaves
Every time I hear The Mixed Tape I immediately want to hear The Adventure. They must have been back to back on an old mixtape I made...or something like that....
