“Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters”
Goodbye, two thousand seventeen! Hello, Two Thousand Eighteen! I am so excited for the new year because that means it is time to reflect on all the beautiful memories I made in the year past and I get to share them all with you. Don’t worry I will keep them short and sweet. So what are you waiting for? Take a stroll through each month of my 2017 rewind. And don’t forget to let me know what your favorite moment was in the comments below!
January, that marked six months of living in Kelowna and I was beginning to get used to it, love it, and enjoy all the people I had met in school so far. This month also marked the completion of semester one. I would say it was easy but that would be a lie! It was full of stress, papers, and deadlines but I made it through without being defeated.
This month was slow, it was valentines day and we celebrated by staying in, making dinner and spending time with each other! I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend it. And we also picked up my new dirt bike!!
I was still in school and counting down the last days for this month so not much was happening but my little brother did celebrate his birthday this month!!
This month had an amazing experience that I will not forget! So what made April so special? Well, I started my first nanny job! That is right I became a full-time nanny for a wonderful family of four children, two boys, and two girls. Two had school so I spent my days with the little ones making crafts, playing outside, swinging for hours, and baking yummy treats.
I got to visit my bestie for the day to celebrate her 20th birthday and I even put together a wonderful surprise for her. It was by far the highlight of my month, we shopped, have a delicious lunch, and I put a smile on her face with the present I got her. I spelled her name out with the gifts I got her and even wrote a riddle so she would have to guess what it was.
This month was both happy and sad! One the sad note I had to say goodbye to my first vehicle my beloved red 2003 jeep tj. I may have said goodbye to my beloved Rubi but I will never say goodbye to adventures I went on with it, from mudding to cruising with the top off. On the brighter side, I upgraded to a pearly white 2014 Jeep Patriot. Once a Jeep Girl always a Jeep Girl right?! And on the bonus of buying my new Jeep, I won a year service package from the dealership too!
This month was jam-packed full of wonderful memories! To start it off Jeremy and I went on an amazing trip back to our hometown to visit with family, friends, and best of all attend a beautiful wedding. Next was our two-year anniversary and all I can say is breathtaking! I was swept off my feet to Quails Gate Winery for an amazing dinner. Next Jeremy and I celebrated our birthdays, ill keep the ages a secret though. Last and finally! I launched this blog, my blog and I am so happy I did.
This was the last month before school started again and it was definitely filled to the top with work, blogging, and fun. I started my second nanny job, taking care of two amazing bright-eyed and fun little girls. They always had me on my toes, laughing and smiling! Innetween all the nannying and serving Jeremy and I also go to take a day trip and ride the Kettle Valley Rail, it was a great way to end the summer.
Hello second year!! And Hello engagement! This month was by far the best month of my life! I got to say yes to the love of my life and I am looking forward to our big day. The proposal was everything and more, it was entirely how I could have even imagined it, a beautiful hike with the surprise of a lifetime!
After last month how could life get any better is what I thought. And it did! Jeremy and I had a wonderful visit from his parents and we got the news that we are going to become Aunt and Uncle!!
This marked study month! it was all about paper after paper and ten finals! But I am happy that it all worked out in the end and I am very happy with my grades.
Semester one of year two was finally done! And to finish it off I got to bring home my new baby hedgehog, little Piper! She is so cute and very friendly, I love everything thing about her.
Thanks for reading! And stay tuned for the new posts coming soon. 2018 has many things in store for Entirely Taylor and I am excited to share it all with you! Happy New Year!
