Dom and I got our first pet in January!  We brought home our precious baby hedgehog, Tate.  He liked to blog too!  Sadly, this little ball of spikes is illegal in PA, but he has a new home with a little girl named Emma and I know he gets all the love he needs!

On the blog I reminisced about the day my life changed, and then somewhere around Valentine's Day I shared the meanest thing Dom ever did to me!!
There is no secret I love the Bachelor and Bachelorette.  Dom likes to keep it a secret, however he loves it too! So, I had a few cocktails and hypothesized about what Dom would be like if he were the Bachelor

We also made the most of our gorgeous weather and had an amazing weekend of Palm Beach living!

I MET ERIN IN DISNEY!  Is there anything better than meeting your bloggy bff in person?  Let alone in Disney?!

I also got accepted to the University of Alabama's Nutrition by Distance Program to start my journey to become a Registered Dietitian!
I celebrated my 24th birthday in the most incredible way possible.  Dom surprised me with the famous Sunday Brunch at my favorite place on earth, The Breakers!

Oops.  How about that month that I didn't blog?  Even though I didn't document it, June was one of my favorite months!  I celebrated my best friend's bridal shower and bachelorette party, as well as some great friends visiting us in Florida!

WOW.  What a huge month in our lives!  Early in the month Dom got into medical school (!!!) and we started planning our move to Pennsylvania.  Mid-July we flew up to NY for my best friend's wedding aka one of the best days of my life!
By the end of the month (23 days after getting his acceptance letter) we were all packed up and moved to our new tiny town of Hunker, PA! Population 329.

In August my family finally opened and debuted our newest venture, a rental property on my family's land in Puerto Rico!  I'm still gunning for a blogger retreat there.  Who's in?
August was also a hard month for Dom and me.  It was difficult adjusting to medical school, living in a new city, and completely starting from scratch.  I shared a little bit about what was on my heart that month in my post about not really knowing where "Home" is. 

In September I headed back to Syracuse for a weekend and spent a weekend going to country concerts, seeing my favorites, and wine tasting with my parents!  Just what I needed :)

In October Dom finished his 3 months of hell (aka the hardest 12 weeks of med school) and had his White Coat Ceremony! I was so proud!

November was a great month for friendships.
I visited my best friend in Virginia, and Dom and I hosted our first "Friendsgiving!"

This month we're celebrating the holidays in the cold!  It is kind of nice to snuggle in during the snow and enjoy the Christmas lights. :) I changed my blog name for hopefully the final time, and got some answers about my health

 I hope in the next few weeks of the year I get to see my family for Christmas and ring in the new year with all the people I love the most!
