2012 in Review

We began the year in Spokane, drinking sparkling cider at midnight on January 1st, watching fireworks, and breaking our Taco Bell fast (we have not craved or even eaten any since). We played in the snow as well. 

In February, we celebrated Valentine's Day, and apparently didn't too much else, or else I didn't take pictures of it! 

In March, Carson's cousin Savannah got married in Seattle, and Carson was the officiant. We celebrated my birthday the day before that, and one of my gifts was to see Straight No Chaser in concert in Spokane. During spring break at the end of March, we drove up to Canada for the day, and back again. 

We celebrated Easter in April with good friends - old roommates of mine, now married and old "Spokane friends" of ours. This was also the month that we discovered we would be moving to Cleveland!

May was a busy month. At the beginning of the month, I "ran" Bloomsday with Izzy, then we helped plan John and Rachel's wedding reception, I was finishing up school, we had Moody's Spring Formal, our second anniversary, our families visited, and I graduated

In June (okay, the last day of May), I went to Ukraine. It was supposed to be until mid-July, but I had a miscarriage and came home after three weeks.

 July was our last full month in Spokane, and it was full of crafting, goodbyes, fun outings, and time with friends. We celebrated 4th of July with good friends, and fireworks downtown, went to Olympia for a garage sale, walked around Spokane for the last time.

In August, we drove across the country to Ohio! We saw Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, visited with Kristine and Ryan in Iowa, stopped by South Bend, and finally made it. That weekend we celebrated Zack and Erica's wedding in Akron! 

In September, we went back to the Lowcountry for the first time in almost two years. I got to spend a little time with Emily in Beaufort and to see my family, but the main reason was for Becca and Thomas' wedding in Savannah!

In October, Carson rode his first roller coaster at Cedar Point, Morgan and Caleb got married in Florida and I got to escape the cold Cleveland weather to be a bridesmaid, and we celebrated Halloween (well, technically, all we did was dress up)

In November, we took our Christmas card pictures and celebrated Thanksgiving -- twice

In December, Carson had a birthday, we did a lot to prep for Christmas, worked a lot, and finally celebrated for the first time in our new home in Cleveland! We got to see friends from "back home in Spokane" as well: Rachel and John, Zack and Erica. We finished the new year off right by having friends from Beaufort (now Virginia): Brooke and Levi come for the weekend to ring in 2013!

It was an eventful year! Can't wait to see what 2013 is going to hold!
Here's our 2011 Recap, if you're interested.
