Birthday Cupcake

Today is my 27th birthday! Each year, I do a post where I look back on some of the year’s highlights, and each has brought a big milestone to smile about. When I turned 25, I reflected on getting married. When I turned 26, the big milestone of the previous year was that Chris and I bought a house. As I turn 27,  it’s obvious that the big moment of the year was when Chris and I found out we’re going to be parents. I’ll never forget the feeling!

Here’s what 26 years old looked like in a nutshell:

Lanier Mansion Madison, Indiana

Chris and I visited one of our favorite towns, Madison, Indiana.

Hancock County Indiana County Fair

We loved our local county fair.

Raised Bed Vegetable Garden

We enjoyed our first veggie garden. (This year, I started a flower bed, and I can’t wait to share details about it!)

Red Velvet Macarons

I “mastered” baking macarons….or at least nailed down a recipe I can use without having a macaron-disaster.

I loved going to the Grand Prix!

Long and Low Floral Arrangement

I took beginning, intermediate, and advanced floral design classes … and LOVED them!

Peach Tulle Skirt
I got my first tulle skirt.

Sigur Ros Indianapolis

Finally got to see Sigur Ros live.

Magnolia House Nashville, Indiana Brown County

Went on a weekend girls’ trip to Nashville, Indiana with Karin.

Canterbury Hotel Indianapolis

Chris and I celebrated our 2-year wedding anniversary with a night downtown.

First Christmas at New House

Got to decorate our house for Christmas for the first time and host Christmas for our family.

Baby Announcement Chalkboard Sign

We found out we’re having a baby!

Excellence Punta Cana

Chris and I went on a babymoon vacation to Punta Cana!

With a baby on the way, 27 is shaping up to be a life-changing year!
