A Look Back at 2013

Wow. 2013 was a big, big year for us. New jobs and new diplomas for each of us, a new car, lots of traveling, lots of quality time with family and friends, and a few house updates thrown in for good measure. We've been busy!

We took trips together to Seattle, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Alaska, Canada, and Singapore, plus lots of in-Texas trips (Johnson City, Llano, Fredricksburg, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Lake Livingston, South Padre Island, McKinney, Plano, and San Antonio). Jeff travelled to Africa for work, and I went to Midland, TX, Dallas, TX and Washington, DC for work.We had plenty of Houston fun too... everything from strawberry picking to brewery touring!

I shared 51 recipes on the blog (it always amazes me how large that number is at the end of each year!). 2013 marked three years of marriage, ten years since we first met (how was that a decade ago already?!?), 24 years of Katie, and 26 years of Jeff!

Here's a quick look back at our 2013 highlights:
