2014 Mini Recap

2014 has been quite a year for us. From mid-March until October we were hardly home on a weekend because we were traveling so much. It was wonderful, but also exhausting at the end of it all. But we are so glad we went on those trips. And we definitely look forward to more travel in 2015 (though maybe with a weekend or two at home thrown in between trips, haha!). Instead of recapping the whole year, I’ve decided to share the five biggest things I think we will remember about this year. So enjoy this short walk down the 2014 memory lane!

travelingLike I mentioned earlier, I think we will definitely remember all the traveling that happened in 2014. This is just a small sampling of the places we went this year. Friend trips, family trips, couple trips, going to meet new babies trips, traveling to be with our niece in the hospital trips, etc etc. We were busy this year!

DestinOur Destin trip for our 6 year anniversary in particular stands out for a couple of reasons. First of all, we nearly died. Okay, not really, but we could have if we hadn’t woken up. It definitely made us hyper aware of all we have to be grateful for. This trip also stands out because we were in desperate need of a breather by the time our anniversary rolled around. The summer had just been SO busy. And the beach is the perfect place to just stop and breathe. No agendas or running around. Just lazin’ about, playing in the water, and taking time to be romantic. It was the perfect refresher for us.

CRUISEWe celebrated 10 years of being together (from the day we first started dating) by going on a cruise to the Bahamas. It was absolutely wonderful. We actually had just received some sad news during this time and being out on the ocean was the perfect place for us. There is definitely something healing about the beach and ocean and time together. I was so grateful for this trip.

photographyMy photography business exploded this year. It’s actually been so hard to keep up with the growth that I’ve had to refer several people to other photographers because I am juggling so much. But it has been amazing to see how this hobby of mine that I was so passionate about has become a viable business. 🙂

TV showAnd of course, 2014 was the year that we made our reality TV debut! 😉 We were chosen for an episode of Fix it & Finish It and we got to be mic’d up celebs for a day. We are still so thankful to Antonio Sabato Jr and the crew for all they did for us!

It has been a whirlwind year. But a good one on the whole of it. We find ourselves entering 2015 excited to see what comes our way. 🙂
Love Rach

  14. Hope y’all have a wonderful 2015! I still need to see that episode of your tv debit, so exciting!

  15. You guys had such a busy year! And I was a little jealous of all the traveling you got to do. I’m so excited for your new photography business! Do you think you will ever have to quit nannying to do photography full time?

    • If I didn’t love the kiddos I nanny so much, I probably would’ve quit that already to pursue photography full time. But I’m in no rush to leave the kids. I figure someday I’ll have kids of my own and then I’ll be able to do photography full time then. 🙂

  16. Ah, girl!!! Your 2014 was full of so many good things! So great that you guys were able to travel so much, and that your photography business took off (not surprising considering that you’re AMAZING!) And obviously it’s awesome that you got to be on Fix it and Finish it! I hope that 2015 a wonderful year for you, too!
