2012 recap...aka longest post I've ever done

2012 has been quite the year for me. It's been really amazing (being with Rayce) and really challenging and sad at the same time (being away from my mom, wahhh! )
Flew back to Iowa for Christmas and started the best relationship I've ever had with my best friend and quickly fell in love

Had lots of fun with old friends

Flew back to Iowa again for a small vaca and spend Valentine's Day with Rayce in his tiny dorm room where I apparently didn't take a single picture
Rayce flew to Raleigh during his Spring break. It was his first time flying in his whole 24 years. I was dog sick the day after he arrived and he took such good care of me.
Celebrated St. Pattys Day
Went to the beach..Rayce's first time seeing the ocean!
(Pissed I didn't take more pictures)
Quality time taking a walk around Lake Lynn
MOVED BACK TO IOWA!! Biggest thing I did in 2012...wishing I would have let Rayce move to NC when he actually was willing to
Had to say goodbye to these beautiful babies
And these handsome little men

And my family that I got to know better and loved spending time with
Made one last beach trip with my mama, sissy, and best friend who flew to Raleigh to road trip back to Iowa with me!

Moved into a little duplex with Rayce
Went to one of my best friends bachelorette parties
Went to a friend from high school's bachelorette party and wedding

Cousin Nicole's wedding in Chicago

Personal attendent at Maddie's wedding

 RIP Nick...You are missed!!
Went to Road America for June Sprints with Rayce's family

July and August
I can't remember anything exciting or significant...
Lost a great man to a tragic car accident
Flew to NC for cousin Rose's wedding/see my mom and sister finally!

Rayce's 25th birthday
Scavenger hung 2012!
