What a Year!

Hi Everyone,

I was looking back at my blog posts today reminiscing on where this year has gone. I know my last post was quite some time ago so I realize there is a lot of catching up to do. Where do I begin...

January 1st, 2013
Ringing in the New Year at my place. Great friends, great drinks and some awesome games.

February 23-24, 2013
I went on a ski trip to a ski resort just outside of Collingwood, Ontario. Don't be fooled, that does not mean I know how to ski! I went on a little ski lesson and a few bunny hills. I am happy to report there were no broken bones and the hot tub was perfect.

March 30, 2013
Helped my friend move into her new apartment in Burlington! Yay Dana.

April 30, 2013
There isn't much to say between January 1st and April 30th but that I survived tax season once again to make it out to a celebration with co-workers and friends... welcoming me back into society!

May 18, 2013
Mike and I celebrated our 10th anniversary. It is funny how time flies, it felt like just yesterday we met at a friend's party playing foosball. We celebrated by attending my cousin's wedding. It felt a bit reminiscent of our upcoming wedding and a reminder of all the wedding planning we still had to do of course!

May 25, 2013
Celebrated an epic bachelorette party for a friend of mine. Sorry I can't say anymore.. what happens in ....well enough said!

June 15-24, 2014
Another girl's trip to Sarasota, Florida. We got to just relax and enjoy the beautiful weather and sandy beaches.

July 21, 2013
My mom, aunts and fantastic wedding party threw me a fantastic wedding shower. I couldn't have been more thankful for all those who attended and the amazing gifts we received. I could really feel the love in the room that day.

July 27, 2013
Our epic adventures in completing the one and only Tough Mudder Buffalo 2013. It was quite the race and really puts it into perspective on how much preparation you really need to do before jumping into it! Look forward to some posts about our 2014 preparation, we are looking at one in August, 2014.

July 28, 2013
The teenager in me was ecstatic today! My cousin and I were lucky enough to get tickets to the epic come back tour...
Boys II Men
98 Degrees
New Kids on the Block 

Summer 2013
I am sure the rest of my summer was filled with all sorts of events but it was a bit of a whirlwind filled with all sorts of WEDDING PLANNING. The big day was fast approaching with very little checked off of my list to this point. I want to say a big thank you to the wedding party, my mom, aunt, and to everyone who lended a helping hand during this stressful time!

September 7, 2013
Mike and I got to celebrate our Stag and Doe with all of our friends and family. I can't say to much about the night because lets just say there were a lot of people flowing drinks in and out of my hand. We had a fantastic night with tonnes of games and prizes, despite all of the rain.. it's goodluck right?

Fall 2013
Filled with the last of all of our meetings and projects to get us through the last stretch to the big day. It was a crazy stressful time.. sorry everyone! Oh and yet another bachelorette party.. but this one was mine. It was an amazing night.

November 14, 2013
Rob Ford said WHAT?!

November 16, 2013
Our Big Day finally arrived. I can honestly say that everything went off without a hitch. We had no problems the day of and all of our suppliers did such an amazing job of getting what was in my head to our beautiful day... which wasn't always easy. 

We could really feel the love in the room that day and want to thank all of our friends and family for their support. It was a long time coming and a very long adventure to get there, but I was so happy to be able to marry my best friend.

I am now officially Mrs. Dawn Lagesten

Saying goodbye to 2013
We ended 2013 with our first Christmas as Mr. & Mrs Lagesten. I ate alot of food and enjoyed alot of laughs, it could not have been any better. 

December 31, 2013
Another evening with family and friends to ring in the New Year.

Happy New Year from all of us in the Lagesten household (even Rocco).

I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy 2014 full of love, laughter and all of your friends and family around you.

And to end the blog with a little outlook on what I have to expect from 2014, here is what my horoscope as to say:

Life is full of situations that support and challenge you. This year brings plenty of both! Work, home and love are all in the spotlight. Some things will be out of your control, but how you respond is up to you. Start a new business venture in June. Dare to move out of your safety zone.

Your most romantic month
January, a time to connect more deeply with yourself and others. In April, take a step back and reevaluate.

Love tips
You are going through profound changes. And what happens with your love life can teach you valuable life lessons. When you see yourself reflected in someone else, you gain more clarity about who you are and what you want to achieve. Yes, it’s possible to fall madly and deeply in love, and it is this soul type connection of the heart that can lead to a lasting union. To move forward with a clean slate, be prepared to deal with the past — and leave it behind.

Business and finance
This year is very much about walking a fine line between visualizing your grand plan and being patient enough to put in the hours of work and strategy to make it happen. You can have it all, Cancer, although at times it will feel turbulent and you will wonder when the spinning will stop. Get out of your own way and let life take its course.

Angel’s advice
Don’t get caught up in the details. Let life unfold without too much attachment.
