We started off January of 2013 with a little road trip through southern Utah, Colorado, and Arizona- where we visited
cliff dwellings, four corners monument, antelope canyon, and monument valley.
We ended up getting bumped on our christmas flight, which gave us each free flight vouchers. We used them
toward spring break spent in Florida- and I finally got to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter for the first time.
A HUGE dream come true.
We also visited Disney and Epcot, which was, of course, loads of fun.
A little bit later we went to D.C. to see the cherry blossoms. It was my first time visiting since going with my parents as a 1 year old. We also visited Mt Vernon.
Around 'prom time' I was asked to model some dresses by a local designer carrier. I got to pick two gowns from their showroom and went out to Bryant Park with their photographer.
From May-June Ryan went to work on an internship in Tokyo and I stayed with my family in Salt Lake City and enjoyed all the scenery and wide open space Utah has to offer.
Come July, I drove out to meet Ryan in Los Angeles where we lived for the rest of the summer while Ryan worked his second internship. It was our last proper summer before student life is really over, and California was the perfect place to spend it. We took full advantage of the scenery and saw so many beautiful sights and spent wonderful times with good friends.
Probably the biggest deal of the year for me was when Chictopia asked me to make a short video in conjunction with Cotton Fabric of our Lives to show on their website during the month of August. It was the first paid gig I had gotten with complete creative control, and I was so lucky to be living in California at the time and have so many nice backdrops at my disposal.
