hello 2012! (massive blog update)

hello hello! my sincere apologies for disappearing on this blog since the summer :/ like i mentioned before, i was in a bit  of a funk and didn't feel like blogging much at all. but here we are in the new year, and i'm going to get back to regular posts!

here's a recap of the last few months (a bit image heavy):

on august 20th, our very good friends denny and krystina became husband and wife. their wedding was magical, and so much fun. they had amazing photographers and videographers to document the day, and everything turned out so cool! i can't wait to see their full video. (their photos & video, photo on bottom right from gina meola photography)

on september 23rd, another pair of very good friends, chris and jayma, got hitched! i was honored to be in the wedding as jayma's maid of honor :) it was such a good time, everything went smoothly and everyone had a great time. they also had a stellar photography team, george street photo & video. (the b&w image below is from their set)

although the weddings were a blast this summer, the couples were happy to be done planning as fall approached, and we were all ready to party for halloween! we rented a trolley and roamed downtown chicago. so much fun! (and i was super excited to be the black swan)

in november, we had another great 40DoX party to kick off the christmas season. below are a few shots from the photo area (a tropical christmas theme this year).

thanksgiving weekend the family and i flew to phoenix, az for my cousin matt's wedding. it was really nice to spend the whole weekend with family, and i was floored that we could enjoy an outdoor wedding at the end of november! ha, that doesn't happen here in the midwest. marissa did an amazing job with the decorations, and it really was a unique wedding.

christmas was great this year. everyone was super generous, and i received some great gifts! below are a few of my favorites: a 6 month subscription to birchbox, tickets to michael jackson's immortal tour, and the coolest macro iphone lens from photojojo (added bonus, also takes amazing bokeh shots).

and lastly, we rang in the new year last night with great friends in chi town! i still can't believe it's 2012 already, but i'm excited for this year :)

hope you all had a great christmas and new years! and thank you to those who are still following this blog...i'll make sure that i post WAY more often...haha.

til next time! xoxoxo
