My One-Year Anniversary

Hi everyone!

So, I’m a few days late, but tonight I want to celebrate my one-year anniversary of blogging!  I started this blog one year ago, on April 19, 2012 to document my training for the half marathon.  It turned into a blog all about Milo, tv/movies/books, and a way to meet some great friends.  And, unbeknowst to me, it became a bit of a wedding blog as James proposed 5 days after I started blogging!

So, without further ado, here are some highlights from the past year:

Our engagement story

Running the half marathon

My beautiful sister’s wedding

My Birthday

And some of my favorite recipes:

Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Stuff Acorn Squash

Microwave Brownie

And some of my favorite books:

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running

The Great Gatsby

Blackberry Winter

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
