Cheers to the New Year! (a lookback on 2013)

Today I wanted to join a link-up that definitely holds a special place in my heart! The ladies at Peach State of Mind, A Thousand Words, Sweet Georgia Peach, Happily Ever Parker and Life in the Lowcountry are hosting a "Cheers to the New Year" link-up and featuring different months from 2013 each week. This week the featured months are July, August and September. 2013 will forever be one of my favorite years ever due to the fact that I got in engaged (well that was in Dec. '12) planned my wedding and married my best friend! It was a fabulous year to say the least and I'm hoping that it only gets better from here! Without further ado, here are some highlights from the summer months of 2013! Thanks for the link-up ladies!




July: Vacations and getting the last of the plans and vendors finalized for the big day! Also last of the bridal showers! (Countdown 2 months!)




Bride-to-Be!

In August my favorite moment to look back on would probably be my bachelorette!




And then came September. I had waited for this month for a year and all of a sudden it was here. I started to panic because I thought...after all the time, effort, sweat, tears and planning....do I really want this day to be over? WAIT rewind- nooooo!!! haha It was the fastest day of my entire life. Other than slowing down time I don't think I would have changed a signle thing. The weather was a perfect 78 with sun and few clouds. A slight breeze hit my hair Cover Girl style at the alter and we were surrounded by about 300 of our closest family and friends. I havw the best parents in the world and they made sure, along with many others, that this was the "Best Day Ever" (that was our theme!)
