Another year has come and gone. 2011 was a very busy year with so many changes for both Ryan and I.

In early 2011, I left my job and Wells Fargo and began working for my stepdad at his practice, Foot Specialists of Kansas City (www.kcfeet.com) herunterladen. January 3rd I will begin my new position at the company. Formerly, I was a receptionist: checking patients in and out, updating patient demographics, and answering phones (among other things) zeitplan herunterladen. I will now begin doing insurance claims and billing, and also keeping the company website and social media up to date.

In April of 2011, Ryan and I made the trek to Minneapolis for my sister Amy’s wedding download skype pc. It was nice seeing her and meeting her in-laws and spending time with our family too! Plus, we got to go to Ikea and get some pretty awesome stuff!

Just a couple weeks later we went to Des Moines for Passover. This was Ryan’s first time meeting my extended family on my dad’s side and we had a wonderful time getting to know everyone there!


In both June and July, I had bridal showers thrown for me. One in Coffeyville and one in Kansas City. We had so much fun and I got some really awesome stuff! Later that month, we had the pleasure of driving to the Lake of the Ozarks to celebrate Ryan’s best friend, Patrick Rea’s marriage to Kristin Grossman! Ryan was Patrick’s best man. They got married in a bridal cave, which was a truly unique experience!

And then in September, Ryan and I celebrated our own marriage! It’s still hard to believe that we are married! The wedding and honeymoon were spectacular, but went by in such a breeze that if it weren’t for the pictures I might wonder whether it really happened or not! (You can see all the pictures on the Photo Gallery page!)

In October, Ryan’s feature length film had its first public showing and in November, Ryan’s parent’s came up to Kansas City for Thanksgiving dinner with my parents. We then went down to Coffeyville for Christmas! Ryan and I ended the year with a bang by throwing a New Year’s party at our house! It was small but a lot of fun with our closest friends!

With so much that happened last year, I hope 2012 can measure up!
