We Survived Another One

Just as I did last year (HERE) and the year before (HERE) this is our little recap of 2013! Hope you had a wonderful year and we are sending warm thoughts and wishing you all the best in the new year! We foresee lots of exciting stuff for our family!
January: We started off the year celebrating my birthday and then I hit the road to Charleston for my first work conference.
February: Bimmer made her first Valentine's Day craft project, we met Kimhead for lunch in Newberry, and Bimmer saw snow for the first time... even if it was just a dusting!
March: We enjoyed the sunshine, celebrating St. Patty's day, and spent Bimmer's first Easter in Atlanta.
April: We took our first real vacation (with no other purpose except to vacation) to Gatlinburg, TN. We also kept busy with all the spring festivals!
May: Bimmer turned ONE!!! We traveled to Hilton Head, the Fort, and the Great White North that month. Lots of miles logged, new states picked up for the baby, and joyful fun all around as Puff and I celebrated a year of parenthood to the greatest baby ever!
June: It was a little rough to find out that Puff was losing his job at the end of the month, but we kept ourselves busy celebrating Father's Day, having a date day to the mountains in the convertible, and watching Bimmer take her first steps! It wasn't long before she was off and running!
July: After years of trying, we finally got Kimhead to accompany us to the Coon Dog Festival! Bimmer loved watching the floats and the fire trucks. We spent time at the pool, had dinner with friends, and went to the park as often as possible.
August: Puff started back to work this month! And we celebrated by taking a trip to Asheville for our favorite comedy festival. The rest of the month felt like a blur since Puff was in Michigan for work for half the month!
September: We took our big yearly vacation to St. Simons & Savannah. I feel so blessed to be able to travel with Puff and Bimmer. We had such a good time playing on the beach, touring Savannah, and eating lots of seafood. The perfect way to spend time together as a family
October: Our craziest month here at Rushing Life. My parents came to visit, we went to Charleston to a wedding, we hit up the state fair and the BMW Euro Auto show. We had family photos taken. Favorite. Month. Always.
November: We had a nice family celebration for Puff's birthday, took a gorgeous walk in the mountains one last time before the weather turned chilly, and spent an overall decent Thanksgiving with the MIL. (Shocker!!)
December: It felt like we celebrated Christmas all month long. We celebrated with family and friends and checked out lots of Christmas lights. Bimmer had her first Christmas program at school and she really enjoyed opening gifts this year... even those not meant for her.
