all of my favorite bloggers did it, so i am doing it.  i mean honestly, it’s just a brilliant idea to highlight some of the important/memorable things from the whole year in one post!  then for someone who hates getting on the computer, but wants to quickly catch up on my life through pictures (ahem..dad) its perfect.  so here goes:

– 2 years of marriage were celebrated here when we kicked off our travels in San Diego [it was too good to just do one post of course] and San Fran driving all up and down the amazing Pacific Coast Highway
