I cannot believe it! I have officially been in Illinois for one year TODAY!
On November 1, 2011, my mom and I packed my car and set out on the 12.5 hour drive from South Carolina to Illinois to start my new life here! You can see that blog post here before I left, here when I got there, and here after a few days in!
What a year it has been...
Experienced my first road trip with Tyler from IL to PA for Thanksgiving.
Lost my white cat Lily.
Went to Kansas City and Chicago.
Took a weekend trip to Chicago in the snow.
Finally made my apartment mine.
Traveled to Iowa for Cinco de Mayo with friends.
Drove to Nashville for a sweet friend's wedding.
GOT ENGAGED in Charleston!
Lost our family dog Abby.
Traveled to Pennsylvania for Tyler's grandmother's funeral.
Went back to Nashville for my roommate's bachelorette party.
Ran my first Race for the Cure for breast cancer.
Flew to Rhode Island for Tyler's brother's wedding.
Took a quick weekend trip home.
Started wedding planning!
Holy cow. What a list of places, things, and travels.
That was an entire YEAR. Can't believe it!
Thank all of your for your love and support over this last year! So much has happened, and so much more is in the works! Can't wait to continue sharing my life with you as I document it on my blog. I'm so thankful for the friends I have made on this blog.
