my year, in pictures...

my beautiful niece sydney was born

went on a sailing adventure 
in our backyard (literally) for erin's birthday

roadtripped to san francisco to visit radley's family

the ACM awards in vegas... plus a trip to atlanta to 
meet & have dinner with emily giffin, my favorite author!

ran the coronado bridge and made some 
wonderful final memories in san diego before graduation

visited radley in san diego... went to
disneyland & hiked 4 hours to the top of mt. fortuna!

fireworks, cubs games & sightseeing... perfection.

dave matthews at alpine, rascal flatts at wrigley field, 
washington d.c. with the girls, and san francisco to help
radley pack up for chicago & to see dave matthews again!

the perfect month of moving into the city i love 
and doing the things i love with the people i love

notre dame vs. usc for radley's birthday
and falling in love with my first real fall in four years

the first time my whole family has been able 
to get together in years... yes, there's thirteen of us!

a san diego reunion with my best friends, the 
second city alumni weekend and snow!

dear 2009, 
i feel so, so blessed for you.
you were full of beautiful, special endings,
wonderful opportunities and exciting transitions
and i couldn't be more grateful.
laura marie
