Happy 2013: Restart!

I can't believe my last post was already more than seven months ago (not to mention a date ending in 2012...) It's another new year so let's try this again!

A Few Highlights of 2012: 
  • Finally finished most of the furnishing and decorating of our new home and hosted a housewarming party
  • Four weddings! That's a record for us so far! Two were destination weddings, one in Portland Oregon and another in Oahu Hawaii! Wonderful memories~ 
  • Celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary and my 25th birthday with a wonderful weekend trip to San Luis Obispo
  • Starting a new job
  • Iphone 5: my first "real" smartphone. Although it was bittersweet to part with my pink french (it was an unlocked international phone) Samsung...
  • Getting my first dslr camera and taking a photography class 
  • Celebrating Will's 30th 
  • Taking regular dance classes again. It took me so long to find a studio that I liked after college. Now I dance weekly again and it feels great! 
  • Got our first "real" Christmas tree (this was our mini tree last year, haha definitely a step-up this year!)

Hopes for 2013: 
  • Write more
  • Cook more special meals for my husband
  • Learn to make more Chinese food
  • Bake more desserts (to share with others!)
  • Travel to Europe 
  • Take lots of photos of beautiful places and delicious food
  • Actually follow-through with a craft project/ pinterest idea
  • Send out Christmas cards (kind of missed the boat last year...)
  • Have more flowers in the house (last year was sort of a disaster for all our our houseplants)
Most importantly, I pray that I will grow in my walk with God and fall more in love with Jesus. My key verse for this year is 1 John 4: 10-12

"This is love: not that we loved God, but he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another God lives in us and his love is made complete in us"

My prayer is that my life will be filled more with God's love, rather than my own, and that I can love my husband, family, and friends with God's love.
