Hi friends, Happy New Year!!! I hope you all had a fun night celebrating and have a great year ahead! Jon and I had a nice, quiet night watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel before the ball drop. 2020 is going to be an amazing year, but before I jump ahead, I wanted to recap 2019. It was such an incredible year, one of the best, and I would be remiss if I didn’t share my favorite memories.
Jon and I took a trip to Puerto Rico with his office to volunteer and vacation and we had an absolute blast! Our favorite part was being in the amazing weather and exploring San Cristobal! I also loved getting coffee and walking along the beach, it was way better than winter in NYC.
We celebrated Valentine’s Day by going to the MET and then having dessert at Serendipity. I shared their famous frozen hot chocolate with Jon’s sister ten years ago, so it was really special being back with Jon.
Jon and I saw Hamilton on Broadway and it was AMAZING!! You definitely need to see this ASAP if you haven’t already! We still sing a lot of the songs from the show on the daily.
Jon and I headed to Michigan for Easter and we finalized our wedding venue! We are getting married in June 2020 and I can’t wait! It’s all coming together thanks to my mom and our families!!
This was my favorite month of the year because Jon and I spent 9 days in Scotland! I didn’t want the vacation to end and it was even better than anything I could have imagined. This was our first international trip together and I loved exploring new places. We saw lots of castles, hiked some cliffs, and went on a ghost tour! You should read about our trip here, here, here, and here if you missed it 🙂
It took us a while to get over our jet lag from Scotland, so we had a pretty low-key month. We did celebrate Jon’s Birthday at Locanda Verde and had a fantastic Italian dinner
I said yes to the dress!! I went with my mom and sisters and found my dress at our first appointment. I was terrified I wouldn’t find a dress I like so this was a huge victory!
I turned 26! I spent the day in Michigan golfing with Jon and then dinner with my family, it was the perfect day!
Jon and I escaped the city to spend Labor Day in to Atlanta with his family and we had the best, relaxing weekend.
After my tax season ended, Jon and I went to Manchester, VT and had such a fun weekend! We hiked, went to the cider mill, and saw all the fall foliage! It was the perfect weekend unplugging away from the city.
We flew to Chicago to attend my friend’s wedding and we had so much fun dancing the night away! We also spent Thanksgiving in Michigan with my family.
This month was over in the blink of an eye! I loved seeing all of the Christmas trees in NYC and spending time in Michigan with family and friends!
That’s a wrap on 2019! It was such an incredible year and I’m so excited for all that’s to come in 2020! Cheers to a new year friends 🙂
