Said "I Do" ... Spent an amazing week in St. Lucia ... Came back and MOVED in together ... My birthday ... Stride for Strays Fundraiser ... Halloween ... Thanksgiving ... Christmas ... New Year's
We failed to notice we only had one closest in the entire apartment during our walk though so storage solutions has been tough. The only closet we have is our bedroom one. No coat closet (well, it IS Florida!) and no outside storage closet. So, our loft has temporarly been turned into a box dumping ground. Just lovely! Don't even get me started on how tiny our kitchen is!
Alas, over the three months our apartment has turned into our home. We love it and so do our two sweet kitties, Chipper Jones and Salem-Binks.
In the middle of chaos, my 25th birthday sneaked its way in. 14 days after the wedding the celebration was still going strong! Of course, we took to my favorite restaurant, PF Chang's, and topped off the night with a Great Wall of Chocolate and great company.
We blinked again and it was time for Stride for Strays. This fundraiser is one I participate in every year organized by the Animal Coaltion of Tampa. This amazing organization's mission is to provide low cost pet care. This year we raised over $60,000! Animals have my heart and I've have been known to be involved in some crazy rescues (i.e., rescuing three dogs (full grown German Shepherd and Bull Mastif mix as well as a Pit Bull puppy) off the side of I75! in southern Georgia!)
Then a few days later it was Halloween and time for pumpkin carving and cute kitties!
Our first Christmas together was lovely! Santa brought me the KitchenAid Stand Mixer I've been drooling over since we entered the married world and Sean finally got caught up on having his own Wii and PS3 gaming systems.
We rang in 2012 in style with our amazing friends and geared up for the upcoming year. I'm embarking on my dream of being a wedding planner by obtaining certification in event planning starting in February. A business plan is in the works for my future career and properties will be looked at in the coming months to house the dream career.
I'm still working on getting all the wedding details and honeymoon pictures posted; little by little they are getting there! Check out the last few posts if you missed them!
