I will be the first to admit that this post is not an original idea of mine; however, I thought it’d be fun to reminisce over the past year and choose twelve of my favorite pictures from 2012.
The year was full of so many ups (and
a few some downs – because, really, who doesn’t have them?) and I am so glad that I was able to capture some of my favorite moments on camera.
JANUARY: What a cold, dreary day this was. Marty and I went to visit his brother in Cincinnati and I snapped this as we were walking around Mt. Washington, Ohio. I love this picture.
FEBRUARY: I couldn’t help but choose this picture as my favorite for February. I know I chose one of Marty and Grant (brothers) for January but this photo of Marty and Jack is in the running for my favorite photo of the year. Love the smiles and genuine happiness behind their expressions.
MARCH: Spring Break in North Carolina. This is one of my all-time favorite pictures of us – it’s both playful and romantic all rolled into one!
APRIL: The Easter season is truly about Christ. As Marty and I arrived at my aunts house for our Easter celebration, I couldn’t help but snap a picture of this sign on her front porch. Christ has risen indeed.
MAY: May was another month of great pictures; however, as I was looking back through pictures, I stopped on this one and decided that none of the others could compare. My parents have been married for 26 years and are still so deeply in love. What a rarity. Of the important things I do in this life, I aspire to emulate their relationship. This picture is so sweet.
JUNE: This picture so perfectly describes June. It was the month that Marty and I embarked on our three week honeymoon across the United States. There were several pictures that I loved from this month but I think this one sums it up best. Open Road!
JULY: This was a difficult month to choose from! The majority of our honeymoon took place in July and although there were a few others that I loved, I think this one has to be one of my favorites. Our time spent at Olympic National Park was short but our experience is one we’ll never forget.
AUGUST: August was a month of developing new routines, kicking back and just relaxing. We traveled to North Carolina for Marty’s aunts baby shower and spent a ton of time outside. I think this picture is perfect in describing our long, end of summer days together.
SEPTEMBER: Glorious apple season. September was mostly a blur. Marty started teaching again, I began working full-time – but I do remember there were apples. A plethora of apples.
OCTOBER: In October, Marty and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary. What made it even more special was that we were able to stay at the same B&B where we were married.
NOVEMBER: This photo perfectly describes Ohio in the fall. Beautiful leaves + a little dreariness = beautiful!
DECEMBER: To top off the twelve photos, I chose this as my favorite for December. Gotta love Christmastime.

Isn’t it fun to sort through past photos?
