It's a new year


These aren't from tonight but I thought I'd post them now since they're festive and fun and since it's NYE!!! And also since we're doing n o t h i n g tonight. These are from Alyse and Johnny's open house last weekend. It was a partay for sure; there was lots of dancing, especially for Cole (he's such a good little dancer) and even for Steve and me :) Which means I can cross something off of my 30 before 30 list. YAY! What a way to start out the new year ;) Oh, and no, I haven't forgotten how to dance especially with Steve by my side. We hadn't danced like that together since our dating days and our own wedding. So, a really long time.

I'll also be crossing off another thing off my list: shooting a wedding! But that deserves a whole post to itself because I learned a lot and my eyes were opened to a lot of things.

Our last day of the year was a typical one for us. Nothing too special. I worked on pictures, Steve worked on our family budget, and I went out and bought new shoes ;) (they are super super cute, btw) Steve and I sat down together and thought about new goals we might want to make for the new year and looked over our budget from 2012 and talked over where we could do better in 2013. We both have this feeling that 2013 will be a year of lots of learning and lots of growth for us. We are feeling very optimistic and excited :)

I'm hoping everyone's NYE was as exciting as ours...;) I know Lissie threw a major party which I'm wishing I could have been in the same country for. OH and Emma, well she spent the evening with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, no big deal. And I am being dead serious. Ask her about it ;)

Happy New Year!
