things that happened this year

 It was a good year. A growing year. A busy year. A year filled with memories. And lots of pictures. Like, lots of pictures. Here are a few that are connected with some of my favorite memories. 

I started out the year by taking some early admit classes at the college where my dad teaches. This fall I began full-time. I was a health science major, but then I changed to communications. 

I fell in love even more with this beautiful creature. (And I took approx. 15,000 pictures of her.)

I graduated from high school. 

Then about a week later I went up to my cousin's place to help her and her in-laws out for five weeks.

A few days after getting home, my big sister and I went on a road trip to visit family (and new babies!) in several other states. We also were in four states at once, which was pretty cool. 

I photographed my first wedding. 

We celebrated the Fourth at the most beautiful spot ever. Aka, the gravel bar in our woods.  

 And then went and watched fireworks. 

 My parents, sister and I went to a lavender farm.

And I went crazy taking pictures. 

 Yup. She just keeps gettin prettier. 

Oh, and I got a camera right after my graduation and started taking even more pictures than normal.

I worked at the same farm that I have for the last four years. 

 And yeah, I did drive the above machinery. 

 I bought myself a car. 

 My siblings were as...strange...as always. 

We had a lot of awesome bonfires down at the gravel bar. 

My sister headed to Africa for two years. 

 I counseled at Camp Tadmor for a week. 

The mud pit was by far the best part. 

 I started going to a college group at a church about 45 minutes away.

I photographed my second wedding. 

I photographed quite a few different people, but these two were among my favorites.

It snowed, my dad took a picture of my girl and me, and it turned out to be one of my favorite pictures ever.

I decorated for Christmas and made about 1,000 cookies and it was really fun. (Okay, not quite 1,000...it just felt like it.)

That's pretty much all the highlights of my year. 

If my dog decides to have her puppies before the stroke of midnight, I can add that to the list of awesome moments of 2013, but if not I guess it will have to go on the list of awesome moments of 2014. 

Speaking of which, I am going to go check on her. So adios folks. Have a fabulous last day of 2013.
