A Year In Rewind

I always love looking back over the years pictures. So this year, I decided to take a look back through all my Instagram photos and share the pictures with you all here.

This is my year… 2016 was a great year!

Bear the torch of truth… And make a difference every day! #januarygoals #amwriting #writing #newyear #winter #peace #light #joy #snow #snowsnowsnow #life

Once upon a June… *dreaming* Johan and I have been busy crossing things off our to do list. At the end of the day we are tuckered out. Wedding planning has really taught me that you can only do so much in a day. And that you can only go so fast before you burn out. So take a deep breath and relax once in awhile. Today Johan and I went out to our wedding venue to get a feel for some decoration and planning ideas for the big day! Can’t believe it’s coming up soooo soon! Isn’t our venue swoon worthy? Awe!! #goals #todolist #gettingmarriedsoon #creatingafitlife #junewedding #countryweddingchapel #minnesota #myheart #love #truelove #happilyeverafter #weddingplanningishardwork #weddingplanningisalmostover #wedding2016πŸ‘°

Yesterday my husband and I took a canoe out onto Lake Itasca. I really want to go on more adventures. I want to be the kind of girl who gets out of the car to see the sights and take pictures. I want to be the person who says lets go on a hike. I want to be the person who goes on a bicycle trip or a multiple night hiking trip in the back country. I want to be the person who wakes up as soon as the sun and goes to take pictures of the sunrise. I want to be the girl that rocks a morning run at 5am. I want to be healthy and happy and living wildly and boldly. I want to be the girl that when people look at me they think “Wow, she’s really living her life. I want to be more like that.” I want to inspire.

I love being married to this man! πŸ™‚

In December, I got a NEW job that I REALLY LOVE so far.

We sent out our first Christmas cards as a married couple!

Just finished addressing and licking all the Christmas cards. We are so excited because this is our first Christmas card together as a married couple! πŸ™‚ Learned a thing or two about Christmas Cards this year that I’m going to remember for next year! Super blessing… is that I STILL have stamps from the wedding so I didn’t have to go out and buy more. Thank goodness. Saves me a trip from my favorite place in the world… the post office. (Not really my favorite place. Post offices are kind of up there with DMVs.) But anywho, I’m so happy to check this off my to do list! πŸ™‚ Note: not all Christmas cards are pictured! #blessedπŸ™ #blessed #marriedliferocks #firstchristmasashusbandandwife #christmascard #nowicanrelaxh

Love where I work. There is such a cool culture. When you catch a mistake in the copy you can make $5 a mistake. So cool! What a nice thought.
