Lighting firecrackers out on the front lawn.



My dearest Blog,
It feels like an eternity, but honestly I have been consumed with life.
The truth is I haven't felt much like blogging, I haven't felt much like creating, I haven't really felt much like myself.
And I do not mean that in a sad sappy depressing way.
I just mean it in a growing new stage of life way. I'm learning how to balance all the new things on my plate. And even though they are all really great things they are still new and sometimes overwhelming.

I have really loved reading though my New Years resolutions from the past. (1.2.)
Some stuck, some attempted and some never touched, but all recorded.
One of the greatest parts that came with this changing year was being able to talk and dream with someone.
New Years day was spent in the passenger seat on our long drive home from Jersey. A ride that is usually filled with good music and naps was filled with accomplishments, hopes, and adventures we trying to fill the coming year with.

Go on our honeymoon- We did not go on a honeymoon after our wedding. This was for a variety of reasons. Partly because when planning a DIY wedding there is a point when you cannot process one more detail, you basically give up. We were running out of money in our wedding budget and I was getting stressed. If there is one thing I know planning your honeymoon should not feel like a burden, it should feel fun and exciting. The other part is because I'm crazy. I am OCD and dysfunctional and I'll admit it and the stress of all the planning then leaving right away was too much. I needed time, I wanted it to be perfect. We decided to put it off and we have been saving since.I just want to actually make sure we do it.

Explore our city- I have lived in Rochester my whole life and know tons of great places, but we moved to this cute little part of the city I don't know as well and Greg is new to Rochester all together. So we really want to learn our area and enjoy all it has to offer. We have cute shops and good eats in walking distance and want to take full advantage of all neat to us.

Invest in our family- This means so many things to us. We are just so excited to be our own little unit now, we want to keep talking and growing and becoming the best we can possibly be for one another. It was amazing to experience our first christmas so soon after being married. We were able to talk about and start some of our own traditions. I love to dream of how we will continue to grow together. Magic I tell you.

Rejuvenated Blog Love- I haven't really missed writing because I haven't had time to miss it. But some weird switch turned after the new year and I really wanted to blog all the things that have been collecting on my desktop. DIY projects, wedding hoopla, and just the beautiful memories of 2012. I am ready. With that comes pictures.

Take More Pictures-If you have met me anytime since the sixth grade you know I rarely go anywhere without my camera. I feel like I haven't taken many pictures at all as of late. I feel I'm one of the only ones left that doesn't solely depend on my phone as a camera and I want to hold on to that.

I'm sure we will add to this as we continue to talk about what we hope the year to bring. 2013.. It's gonna be good I an feel it.

Wishing you a lovely weekend, thanks always for your love, support and readership over the last few years.

xoxo jess
