So here it is, our first full married year, the end of the world, 2012 in review:
In January André started LSAT prep and we said goodbye to Saturday mornings and two nights a week together. I got a new calling as Relief Society president and was overwhelmed and excited all at once.
In February we celebrated my birthday, and I dramatically rang in my new year with a new hair color. We had a quiet Valentines Day in, and then spent a relaxing weekend in the "big city" where he hot-tubbed to our hearts' content and ate our weight in delicious gelato. (both exaggerations)
André ended the semester for a short break in April and we took the first of our spring trips to Colorado.
In May it was back to Colorado again for Chelsea's graduation, when the Mariners heartily beat the Rockies and I recieved some "friendly" ribbing from the Kaiser clan. We spent a relaxing Memorial Day with the Asian tourists at the copper mine and a quaint picnic in the park. We celebrated André's birthday with a picnic, friends, and lots of delicious food.
June took us across the country for a week of Treasure craziness in Virginia. We kayaked, played, and won Olympic medals. And André got his ears power cleaned out. We also kicked off the great fry hunt of 2012 and took a lovely camping trip.
September was busy busy busy. I got really sick right before the busiest week ever at work, so that was cool.
October finally relieved us from the pain of the LSAT. It also brought a Kaiser visit for General Conference and a festive Halloween.
We spent November enjoying the fall season, spending Thanksgiving in Seattle, and André spent 8 hours on the phone on election day. Gotta love being a stats major during the exit poll.
In December we boycotted turning our heat on. André survived finals and we rode off into the sunset to enjoy Christmas with the Kaisers in San Diego.
