Truth be told, I'm not sure that I'm quite ready to let go of being twenty-seven just yet. The last year was probably my favorite year ever.
Patrick helped me celebrate my 27th birthday with a zoo membership and tickets to Brew at the Zoo.

Then he proposed.

There was this awesome trip up to Louisville, KY to see a Clemson game and to tour distilleries.

I spent a Saturday morning with my mom and a bridesmaid picking out the PERFECT wedding dress.

We joined a new church.


I set PR after PR in my 5K races and squeezed in my 2nd half marathon.

We traveled to Asheville with Patrick's family for some Christmas fun.

We spent New Year's Eve on a boat with some awesome friends.
We took a trip down to Charleston for a Stock the Bar party and almost missed it because we had too much fun on a spontaneous day date to a new-to-us brewery.

My coworkers surprised me with a bridal shower at work on April Fool's Day.
Patrick & I took in quite a few Fireflies games at the new stadium in town in our matching hats.
We spent an amazing weekend in Savannah with all of our family and friends.
So... can you see why I'm having a hard time letting go of 27 this year? The last 366 days have been absolutely fantastic and if I could do it all over again, I absolutely, 100% would.
But something tells me than 28 is going to be equally awesome.
Cheers to being 28!
