Time is passing
It is amazing how fast time is flying. I still think I was in high school two years ago but my 5 year class reunion this past summer reminded me that is not the case. Catch up on our lives over the past year...
Matt and I were married on December 29, 2012 so this makes for our first Christmas as husband and wife!
Eternity begins- honeymoon #1
Our honeymoon took us to the Bahamas over New Years. We had a great time! We felt like we were one of the only ones on the island; one day we rented a Moped and drove across almost the entire island and found that thought to be pretty accurate.
New Adventures in familiar places- honeymoon #2
Matt had a business meeting in Nashville, and I didn't start school for another week so as soon as we got back from our honeymoon we took off again. I like to refer to this trip as honeymoon #2. We went to Memphis-hung out on Beale Street and toured Graceland coincidentally on Elvis's birthday. Then we headed to Nashville where Matt went to business meetings, and I worked on thank you cards. It was my 12th trip to Nashville, and I finally got a tour!
Time with the girls!
In January I took a girls trip with some of my classmates and new found friends to Vegas for a Lady Gaga concert. It was probably the coolest concert I have ever been to; she puts on a HUGE production.

"Y am I alone?"
Matt took off in May for his final summer with Southwestern Advantage. He left me alone to move...again and continue to work on my master's degree.
Trip of a lifetime-Ecuador
In occupational therapy school, we have three one week and two three months clinical rotations. My final one week rotation was completed in Ecuador as part of a medical mission trip. Eight OT students, 5 PT students and three faculty sponsors made the trip in August. We worked in a clinic that treated people with Hansen's Disease (leprosy) for a week and did some sight seeing at the end of the trip. It was an unforgettable experience.

I took a quick trip up to New England to see Matt this summer. My mom went with me to Boston for a few days. We had a great time visiting the area.
Matt came and met up with us, my mom went home, and we headed to Maine. We went to Acadia National Park-so beautiful!!!! Then we headed to visit with my host mom, Helen, that I stayed with my final summer with Southwestern Advantage.

Matt finally decided to move back home so after eight months of marriage we decided it would be a good idea to live in the same state.
Roadtrip (for my family)
The first weekend Matt was home my family decided to come visit us and go to the Chiefs/Cowboys game. The whole family decked out in their Cowboys gear. Matt however chose to wear his Broncos paraphernalia and was given a pretty hard time by all the Chief's fans.
Trips to Nebraska
We made as many trips back to Nebraska as we could. State volleyball and friends' weddings were always good excuses. After driving back and forth for a year and a half, I am quite positive they have conspicuously added at least 50 miles onto I-29.
Essence of a Jayhawk
We thought we better get in as much hometown spirit as we could while we lived in KC so we took a trip to Lawrence for the KU exhibition game.

End all be all-capstones
Capstone was supposed to be the end all be all to our academic career. I sit here writing this before my last final and it seems like capstones were a really long time ago....but it was nice to get that done and over with when we did!
You can check out my post about that here.
And here's to new beginnings. After Christmas we are moving to Phoenix where I will complete six months of clinical rotations and Matt will start a new job. We are excited for this new adventure-mostly because of the warm weather. Wish us luck, and if you are ever in the area be sure and stop on by!
