.a year has passed.

Hey everyone! Sorry I was totally MIA for the last week. I guess I took birthday week to a whole new level and just didn't do anything at all when I got home from work! Please say you forgive me!

Last Friday was my birthday, I turned the big 2-8....only two more years until 30! Where has the time gone!?! Seriously, how is it that my birthday has already come and gone? It's true the older you become the faster life passes you by.

So, I thought I would great to reflect and see what I have done this last year and try to figure out where the time actually went!!

Went to great concerts such as NKOTBSB (New Kids on the Block & Backstreet Boys), Bright Eyes, Grouplove, The Head and The Heart, Dave Barnes, & Dropkick Murphys,

Went on a great trip to NYC,

took in the monuments by night via the river,

celebrated THIS wonderful woman's 90th birthday,

showed my uncle the DC sights for his trip to help us move home,

packed up our uhaul and moved all our stuff across country,

hopped on THIS plane and moved across the world to Australia,

moved to this beautiful city; Newcastle, Australia,

hung out with this cutie...and other cute Aussie animals,

spent days hanging out in this great city, Sydney,

went to New Zealand for the World Rugby Cup game USA vs. Australia,

had a whale of a time whale watching,

learned how to surf,

said goodbye to this wonderful woman,

spent tons of time with my dad Down Under for three weeks,

traveled by train  in Australia for 3 1/2 weeks to see places such as: Melbourne, Canberra, Coffs Harbor, Brisbane, Byron Bay, Airlie Beach, and Cairns,

moved back to Minnesota and settled into our new apartment,

and ran my first half marathon!

When looking back on the year, I feel like 27 was waaaaaaayyyyy goood! 
Hopefully, I will be able to keep up the momentum and make 28 just as great 
in its own little way!
