2011 Review

Watching the Today show while on Christmas break has inspired me a bit to think about the memorable moments over the last year. So here it goes!
  • Brought in 2011 with some good friends from the Luther Seminary community
  • Celebrated being a couple of one year in late January
  • Had a great Valentine's Day with Groupon coupons and gift certificates
  • I lived through a semester of CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education) - continued discernment on potentially pursuing chaplaincy
  • Traveled from MN to IN for wedding showers in March - relived a childhood annual party theme of tea party!
  • Finished Year 2 of graduate school
  • Became a MRS. in July
  • A magical Disney Honeymoon
  • Became an Aunt and Uncle for the first time
  • Continued celebrating marriage at the Hoosier Celebration
  • Moved to the Northwoods of MN
  • Started full-time ministry job/Diaconal field work
  • Celebrated with others in their engagements and weddings
  • Celebrated the long life of Grandpa Nelson
  • Celebrated our first Christmas as a married couple
Now for 2012 we'll continue to grow, learn, and love on life. Some things we're looking forward to:
  • A quiet NYE
  • Good friends' wedding
  • Belated Christmas celebrations with our families
  • YM Network Extravaganza in New Orleans
  • Finishing year 3 of seminary - I'm officially a senior now!
  • Welcoming another niece or nephew!
  • Celebrating 1 year of marriage
  • Summer youth trips
  • Pow-Wow
  • Moving back to St. Paul for our senior year of grad school
  • Fall holidays with our families
  • Celebrating 21 years cancer free!
We're sure there's lots more coming our way, but it'd be pretty boring if we knew everything. Happy last few days of 2011 and may 2012 be filled with excitement, adventure, love, and peace!
