Is this a crazy time of year, or what?!
I'm not completely sure what I was thinking when I decided to start my blog around the holidays. Not only is there Christmas, spending time with family and friends over the holidays, and New Year's...we decided to get married on 12/30, so we also have our anniversary celebration.
We started a tradition of recapping our year on our anniversary. It's a great way to reflect on the year and start to think about the year ahead. Some of the things we record are vacations we took, major life decisions we made, our address, the kind of cars we drive, our jobs, and some of the things we have planned for the year ahead. It kind of combines celebrating another year of marriage while reflecting on the year along with some resolution setting.
Since my blogiversary falls close to New Year's as well, I thought it would be fun to do a similar thing here.
