2018: A Year in Review

Happy New Years Eve!

2018 has been a really good year. I got to travel and explore. I learned so much. I grew as a person and as a legal professional. I made some amazing new friends, cut some toxic people out of my life and decided to focus only on the positive.

January started off with my 24th Birthday and the start of my 4th semester of law school.

In February, we had a new baby horse born- Olympia since she was born the week of the winter Olympics.

In March, I traveled for my first Moot Court competition and had a blast!

I also went on a fun trip with my law school friends to the cutest hotel ever to celebrate one of their birthdays.

In April, I took some outrageously hard exams and finished up my 2L year in law school.

In May, I started a summer clerkship with a local state Judge. I also found out that I got the highest grade in my Legal Ethics class which is a high point for my time in law school.

My hubby and I went on the most amazing cruise to the Carribean and had an absolute blast.

In June we attended a beautiful wedding and enjoyed the warmth and sunshine of summer. We also laid a new floor in our master bedroom and refinished our stairs.

We went to see Tim McGraw and Faith Hill in concert which was amazing.

I went to see Shania Twain with my law school mentor. 

In July, we celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary.

Made the best of the summer heat.

Visited my grandparent's cottage on Lake Michigan.

August brought the end of my clerkship. It was such a wonderful learning experience.

We made the best of the time before school started.

And then my 3L year began- I truly do not know where the time went.

I got to see Taylor Swift in concert and it is one of the greatest moments of my life.

September was full of school and studying.

We did take family pictures and spent some quality time with our precious pups.

October was busy with school and work. We made some time for walks with the pups and made the best of the Indian summer and warm Fall weather. My husband turned 25 and I surprised him with tickets to a Kieth Urban concert.

I dressed up like Elle Woods for Halloween.

November was full of exam prep and a quiet Thanksgiving.

December brought the end of my 5th semester of law school and a wonderful Christmas holiday. A blogger friend and I kicked off a new book club and we got a Roomba vacuum for Christmas.

I hope everyone has a fun and safe New Years Eve and 2019 is bound to be a great year!
