What. A. Year!

2013 was AMAZING -- and I don't kid when I say it was my best year yet. I don't think I can adequately put how great the year was into words so I'm going to break it down month-by-month with the help of photos.

After seven months apart, Tim and I were able to ring in the new year together (fortunately, we've been able to ring in the new year together every year) and celebrate 2 years of dating. 
  Tim and I won a pretty cool contest -- the prizes of which were being treated to dinner and drinks in Bryant Park NYC, and a round-trip Southwest Airlines ticket!

  My family joined me for a trip to Hawaii! I am so happy they were able to experience the Aloha state together with me and Tim.

I got back from Hawaii and hopped on a plane to NC for a law school competition a few days later. 

 This was a BIG month. I received two job offers, made a decision, and graduated law school!

  I ran my first obstacle mud run with two of my best friends and LOVED it!

 I studied 12-14 hours a day for the bar exam and finally took it on the last two days of the month. 

This was a really fun month. I went apartment hunting in Chicago, celebrated my 25th Birthday with some of my (and THE) best friends and hopped on a plane later in August to Hawaii for two months!

  Tim and I were enjoying spending time with one another in Hawaii, and kicked off September on the Big Island. 

 This was another BIG month. I found out I passed the bar exam, moved to Chicago, and was sworn in as an attorney!

This month was really exciting. After nearly three years of dating, Tim and I headed back to where it all began -- Las Vegas, he proposed and I said YES!!! I also said Yes to my dress with the help of my mom, aunt, grandma, brother and maid of honor. And we picked a date and venue.

Tim came home for the holidays! We celebrated Christmas together, surprised his family in Michigan and took engagement photos, which we are anxiously awaiting the final product of. 

Wishing you all fabulous and safe New Year celebrations! See ya on the flipside -- in 2014 ;)
