2014: A Year to Remember...Forever!

I will absolutely never forget all that the year 2014 brought me.  It was an amazing year filled with once in a lifetime fun and excitement.  Enjoy my recap of this amazing year along with some sneak peeks of photos from the wedding planning posts that are to come in the early part of the new year.

On the brink of 2014, Chris proposed to me.  I can't believe it has been a whole year (as of last night) that I've had this beautiful ring on my finger.  I surprised him last night with some cupcakes of my own to celebrate.

In January, we went to see Motown: The Musical with some of Chris' family, officially decided on our wedding date, and started our mini of the month taste test with some Cotton Candy deliciousness.

In February, we traveled to Kentucky to search for wedding venues, finally made it to Burlington, Vermont, celebrated Chris' birthday with some hibachi fun, and weren't too impressed with Toffee Crunch!

In March, I set a personal record in the NYC Half and gobbled up lots of Vanilla Cookie & Cream minis.

In April, I ran the Cherry Blossom 10-miler with friends in DC, we celebrated four amazing years together in Providence, and gave Lemon Cheesecake a try.

In May, we returned to Kentucky for lots of vendor meetings including my favorite of the whole process - cake tasting!  I attended a book chat with the author after reading The Lullaby of Polish Girls in my work book club, and we suffered through Neopolitan mins.

In June, we watched Tim Howard the US team play before they headed off to the World Cup in Brazil, loved the Chocolate Pretzel minis, and enjoyed our engagement party hosted by Chris' parents.

In July, I was a bridesmaid on the beach in my friend's wedding in Florida, celebrated my birthday by escaping the room, and couldn't get enough of the Root Beer Float minis.

In August, I said goodbye to an old friend, had my first wedding dress fitting back in Kentucky, got outraged by a mini of the month repeat, and had a fabulous time with friends during my bachelorette weekend in NYC.

In September, I co-hosted a baby shower for my friend Mary, attended my amazing bridal shower in Kentucky, had fun at Wine Riot, and scooped up lots of Banana Pudding minis.  We also took our engagment photos and ran a race together.

In October, I wasn't sure it was going to all come together in time, but it did...and I married the love of my life on the 18th.  And if the month wasn't already jam packed with fun for the wedding, we managed a trip to Detroit, snuck some Chocolate Caramel Cookie minis, and I enjoyed Central Perk with F*R*I*E*N*D*S.

In November, we mostly honeymooned....yay!  We also saw Stevie Wonder in concert, gave Cornbread minis a whirl, and saw an amazing show on Broadway - Disgraced.

In December, I revealed my ultimate coffee date, we celebrated our first Christmas together...ever, and enjoyed some Hot Cocoa.

What were the highlights of your 2014?
