2014 according to Instagram

This year was the best year yet! As I looked through my instagram to find pictures for this post I realized just how blessed I am to get to do what I love and go to some incredible places! I had the opportunity to go on 10 trips this year! Whoa! whatta year! I LOVE to travel. Airports and airplanes are some of my favorite things, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures is something that I love to do on a regular bases. I think traveling is an incredible way to enrich your life and seeing the world makes you view life from a new perspective. This past year I mostly saw new places in the united states. but just because I didn’t have to travel far doesn’t mean it didn’t impact me for the better.

2014 started with our best friends having their sweet son.

I headed to Santa Barbara California for an amazing photographers conference with some wonderful friends! Riding bikes and the ocean are 2 things that I absolutely love so when we found out we could rent bikes from our hotel and ride to the beach boy was I excited!

I flew straight from Santa Barbara to one of my FAVORITE places in the world: Mazatlan, Mexico! This trip was life changing! God taught me so much and reminded me of my heart for the country and people of Mexico (I can’t wait to be back in 1 week!!)

I came home for 2 days and hopped back onto a plane to head to Hawaii with Trevor’s family. I spent my birthday on the beach sipping starbucks and with my sweet husband! I found out why Hawaii has rainbows on their license plates and got to enjoy some of the best food!

Back in Colorado Trevor was the most excited person I have ever seen to get handicap parking! ha! Trevor was born with a neurological disorder called CMT that effects his muscles. This is maybe the only perk of the disorder but boy do we love it! This picture reminds me what an amazing attitude my husband has toward life and hardships he faces

Austin wedding photographer | Our anniversary in Austin Texas

One year ago I sat as my hair and make up were perfected. One year ago I slipped on a fluffy white dress. One year ago I sat in the rain hoping it would pass. One year ago I spoke Trevor’s name as he turned around tears in his eyes. One year ago I walked down the aisle towards my fiance. One year ago I said “I do” and became a wife!!

I cannot believe its been one year! This year we have traveled to Mexico, Went to Disneyland for the first time, went on a cruise with our best friends, and traveled to El Salvador on Trevor’s first mission trip and finally celebrated our anniversary while we were in Austin, Texas to photograph a wedding!

These are just the places we traveled but the adventures have been deeper than where we have gone.

I am a lucky girl to get to spend my life with such a loving, caring, funny, sweet, generous, interesting, intelligent man!! I can’t wait to see where year two takes us!

Here are some photos from our anniversary in Austin!
