2013, A year for the books!

Today I've decide to change things up a little bit and participate in That's What She Read's link up!

This was obviously, hands down, my most amazing, trying, emotional, crazy, stressful, happy, exciting year yet. If you've been following along for a while, you know all of the bananas that went on this year, but if you're new, allow me to recap the biggies! Got married, started a brand new job, bought a house and went on a wicked 2 week honeymoon! And those were just the huge things, I also became an aunt (which I seriously love), spent a lot of time working on some personal things, kept up with my little blog, read a lot, traveled a lot and just tried to appreciate each moment.

Just to follow along with the link up, let me share a few of my favs from this year!

the wedding girl's favorite reads:
The Husband's Secret
Night Road
The Tao of Martha

There are so many more, but I could get really out of hand here.

the wedding girl's favorite TV shows:
Grey's Anatomy

the wedding girl's favorite movies:

the wedding girl's favorite moments:
- surprising mr. wedding girl with tickets to see the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park for his 30th birthday
- seeing Nantucket for the first time from the ferry
- doing last minute wedding errands with my hilarious sister
- putting my dress on
- seeing my love at the end of the aisle
- looking around during my wedding speech and realizing all of the people I love most were in one place
- dancing the night away at the wedding
- the first day of a new job (this wasn't my favorite because I loved it, but it pushed me to do something I was very nervous too do and the last 6 months have taught me the importance of finding what you love in life and pursuing it. It also showed me the importance of a good, solid marriage, one where the other person is a solid supporter)
- being asked to be my best friend's maid of honour
- being at the hospital for the birth of my nephew Colton and getting to snuggle him for the first time
- signing out mortgage papers, for our first home!
- walking into our house togeter for the first time
- arriving at the resort in Hawaii, it completely took my breath away
- Sunday night dinner's at my parents house
- Decorating our new house for Christmas, for the first time!
- My surprise trip to NYC!
