2014: year in review c/o LLinaBC.com

oh, 2014. you were one for the books.

we moved into a new apartment in des moines. • I accepted a new job in march. • in april, I attended go blog social [a blogger conference] in kansas city. • we had the most magical engagement photographs taken. it was my pinterest dream come true. • I got married. which I’m sure you probably didn’t even know, because I barely spoke about it. not here, or here, and surely not here. I may have even forgotten to share our wedding video. insert: an overload of sarcasm. • we added a sweet, little furbaby to our family + named him Sir Rigby. • we spent the holidays in chicago. •

top four posts of 2014:

hot buttered rum • 10 things you must do in des moines • DIY coasters • bridal sparkle •

honorable mentions:

apple cider moscow mules • DIY housewarming basket • the opening of pinot’s palette • date night at malo •

I cannot wait to see what 2015 has in store. I am hoping for an amazing first year of marriage. filled with loads of traveling + adventures. more exploring the great city we live in. much health + happiness. and a lot of time with friends + family.

what were your favorite moments of 2014? what are you looking forward to in 2015?

happy monday!

life // meet sir rigby.

it all started with a meow outside my parent’s window. and after a bit of a struggle to catch the tiny stray, there was a photo posted on facebook. the sweetest yellow + white kitten, who was in need of a good home. I instantly commented “[J] will take him!”. and the rest is pretty much history.

he joined our little family on friday. and we’ve been on kitten cloud 9 since.

granted our wedding planning has come to a screeching halt. when we’re at home, he wants to play or cuddle as close to our faces as possible. making it hard to do just about anything. but we’re suckers for him already. and can’t help but give in.

see more on instagram // especially the shot of him cuddling with [J] our first morning together. that’s when he really stole my heart.

so my absence was strictly because I’ve been spending all my free time enjoying our new bundle.

happy thursday.
