Today is an extra special day.  Not because Christmas is only 4 days away or that tomorrow marks one year of being engaged, but because it is someone special’s birthday.  We have been celebrating all weekend with fun dinners with friends, holiday parties, and lots puppy snuggles.  I am a pretty lucky girl to have found the love of my life and to be celebrating six birthdays together.

Each year at this time I love to look back and reflect on where I was the year before and think about how much has changed, how much has stayed the same, and all of the experiences I have to look forward to for the next year. Last December 22, Patrick and I were snowed-in at Patrick’s parents house in Kansas City with a little dose of the stomach flu. It was one day before I said yes to spending the rest of my life with the most amazing man. We were currently living in small town Ohio,and getting ready to start our year of adventure.  If you follow us on Instagram, you would notice 2014 was our year of traveling, moving, and lots of changes (but honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way). In between weekends traveling to Toronto, New York, Boston, San Diego and so many others, we took a leap of faith and moved to Dallas to take on the biggest adventure of our lives.  Within 2 weeks, we moved cross-county, found a house and started new jobs. We are still learning everyday how to make Dallas our home, but  I love this is the place we are putting down roots.

We have so many exciting things happening in 2015 that I cannot wait to share with you soon! But until then, I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday with family and friends. I am so thankful for all of your support over the last 4 years, because if it wasn’t for you, there wouldn’t be A Dash of Details.  :)
