I cannot believe how fast this year has already gone by. I never imagined my wedding day to feel like a blink, and it did. There are so many major events in my life that happened this year, and I can't even sum it all up. I am so proud of my accomplishments and success that I do not want this year to end. I feel like I have much to live up to for 2012. Whether or not it's as eventful as 2011, I think what I have learned from 2011, it to live it up, and wake up everyday like it's your last. I've got a lot more I want to do with my life, and this is just the beginning. Here are some of my favorite's from 2011 !

I began my last and final semester of college at LSU.

Saying I had a good time at Mardi Gras would be an understatement.

Nothing too significant here. I was probably too overwhelmed in wedding planning and school work.

I had my first bridal shower, and it was absolutely beautiful. My mom, bridesmaids, and family did a wonderful job !

Went on a cruise with all of the LSU Seniors to Cozumel ! Had a great time and snorkeled for the second time in my life.

I GRADUATED from College in a cool 4 years !!

We were given a beautiful couple's shower by two wonderful families ! We had so much fun !

What girl doesn't dream of her bachelorette party? Let's just say, we had a really really great time !

The wedding month !
I became a MRS. on July 16 ! Hard to pick one photo, but this is one of my favorite from our wedding day ! The picture below is so special because we didn't even plan the tunnel, our family and friends just formed it. It was really cool and so touching to feel so much love around us. Photo is of us leaving our reception, headed to the honeymoon! Just following the honeymoon Joel began medical school and we moved to the state of Alabama!

After a big move, I heard great news at the end of August that I had gotten a job I had interviewed for! I celebrated a birthday on August 29th ! I also got the best birthday present ever! Our sweet puppy Rayne who we rescued from a high kill shelter. She has brought so much energy and love to our lives! 

I began my first job the first week of September and learned so many new things I had never done before. I am still very happy at my job and am enjoying it all ! AND I started this blog! I think it was one of the best choices I have ever made !

We had a fun Halloween, yet it only took us 3 hours before the party to figure out what we had finally decided on. We had a great night with friends !

Does anyone not remember the 5th of November? Here's a picture in case you forgot !
We all know the outcome !

LSU NO. 1 !!!!

Our first Christmas together as a married couple. It was a great one indeed, and we got to spend time with both of our families. All we could have asked for.
