2014 In Review

This Year has been a pretty crazy one for us, so I thought it might be fun to review how many changes we've had in our lives this year.

We started off the year with me moving back to DC by myself while Hal finished his last semester of school in Utah. Hal sent me flowers every two weeks and I sent him a handwritten letter every single week, and a picture of me and our cat every day. Hal flew out at the end of January and surprised me and we went to Richmond, Virginia for the first time. Best surprise I could have asked for.
 In February we missed Valentines day because my flight was canceled, but we still got to see each other and celebrate with a sushi making lesson. In March Hal came to visit me and we went to Harpers Ferry and hiked along the Appalachian trail for the first time. At the end of April I flew out to Utah for Hal's graduation and we moved ourselves officially out to DC. I don't think I'll ever move myself across the country again. We also moved into a our own new apartment which felt amazing after living with a family for 9 months.
We then only had weekends together while Hal worked in New Jersey over the summer, we hit up Assateague Island almost every single weekend. We got a new cat as Hal's graduation present, Tuk Tuk and Pepe became fast friends. In July Hal decided Jersey was stupid and not worth it and officially moved home. YAY. He moved up his start date and officially started as an auditor with EY in August. We celebrated our 6 year anniversary in September. In October I got to go to Portland and meet my new niece Lillian.
I discovered I love living in a tourist city, because people actually come visit you! We've had lots of visitors since we moved out here, and think people should keep visiting.
I also chopped off my hair myself which maybe wasn't the smartest idea.
We traveled quite a bit within the US this year which was a lot of fun. We went to Moab Utah for the first time. How are we both essentially from Utah and have never been to Moab? The hike to Delicate Arch is definitely worth it. In September we went to North Carolina's Outer Banks which was such a blast. I also went to St. Louis for work that month. In early December I went to Philly with some friends for a girls weekend.
Lastly this year Hal got Poison Ivy and I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. But on happier notes, Hal took his first CPA exam and is currently studying to take his second; and we finally live in an apartment where we can have a real Christmas tree again.
This year has been so full of change for both Hal and I; some good and some bad. I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store for us!
