Reflections of 2015

I'm linking up with Kristin, Traci and Hadar to look back on 2015!

 I would say for the most part 2015 was a good year. Here are some of the events that happened.

January was a blur. We celebrated Great Uncle Frank's 91st birthday on January 14th and then said  goodbye to him two days later. January was also filled with week long GLAD training and submitting my portfolio for my professional certificate. We also celebrated our good friend graduating from the police academy.

February started with the Seahawks in the Super Bowl again and then a trip to CA to celebrate Great Uncle Frank's life.

The party was a dirt bike theme

April we celebrated our goddaughter's christening.

July was spent celebrating my Mom's birthday and Mr. J's 30th birthday. We did our annual trip to the Newport. We also welcomed my bestie to our neighborhood. We also traveled to Montana to see family. We checked out the cycle saloon.

2015 was the year we turned 30, traveled the world, took on more responsibilities at work, celebrated with people we love and most important did it together. Looking forward to whatever 2016 has in store for us.
