2015 was quite the year. in februrary i said “yes” when garrett popped the question outside the restaurant we had our first date at and overlooking the lake sitting on the same bench where we shared our first kiss … and a bottle of wine … over a year before.
to celebrate our engagement, new family and our respective march birthdays, we went on a trip to the british virgin islands with garrett’s family. it was my first trip out of the us of a and my first passport stamp! i was excited to say the least. we sailed around on a catamaran visiting and exploring the different islands by day and star gazing by night. take me back. please.
in may i graduated law school with honors and with sadness that it was all over (yep, i lo-ved law school). during june and july i locked myself in a room for 12+ hours each day as i studied for the florida bar exam. august brought with it an exciting new employment opportunity with a very large local firm and the following month i found out that i could officially call myself an esquire. and now as i sit in my very own office (it has a door and everything) on the final day of the year, i am overwhelmed with gratitude for all i was blessed with this year. i conquered a dream i had since high school and although it wasn’t an easy road this past year, it was definitely one filled with perseverance and reward.
and from what i can tell, 2016 is not going to be slowing us down. 🙂
