2017 was an amazing year, and I am so grateful for all of the opportunities and love that I experienced in it! By far, my favorite moment of 2017 was marrying Greg! It was just such a magical day full where we were surrounded by love and happiness, and it is literally a dream come true that I get to spend the rest of my life with Greg. He just always makes me feel so loved and warm inside. He is so supportive, and I love his adventurous spirit! His heart truly feels like my home.
Traveling to Mexico for our honeymoon was so fun! I loved the plane, and I loved spending all day on the beach or in the water. It was a treat to get a full, uninterrupted week with Greg. We loved snorkeling so much, and I am hoping I can gather up the courage to scuba dive; maybe this year! Also, reeling in those HUGE ocean fish was so cool, and I cannot wait to play beach volleyball with Greg again this summer!
All the little trips we have made this year will on a whim totally fulfilled our travel bug! We would love to travel more, and our little trips to Iowa, downtown Chicago, a hotel in Peoria for hunting, and more were so fun. Getting up and going is just the best. From the car ride to the hotel to finding a restaurant and exploring just makes us so happy! If we could travel every weekend we would! I think it would be so fun to visit all 50 states!
Discovering my love for bass fishing with Greg was one of my favorite parts of summer 2017. Every time I think about our little bass fishing competition we did with each other, I can’t help but smile and hope that I can beat him when we do one when bass fishing comes back around! I’ve really improved my fishing techniques.
Finally, getting little puppy Arthur was so exciting. Adding a puppy to the family is just so cute, and we love him so much. We have been playing with him like crazy. He loves monkey in the middle. Greg and I put him on the floor and we take turns calling his name, and he just prances between the two of us wagging his tail! He also has a favorite toy that he got as a gift. It crackles, and he has been playing with it soooo much!

I could go on and on because 2017 was amazing, and I feel like we are constantly learning (which is why I love getting older/ new years), and a year full of love is just such an amazing gift. So, cheers to 2018! We hope your year is filled with love and laughter and that all of your dreams come true! We cannot wait to chase new dreams and create more love!
