A little over one year ago, Brandon and I packed up everything we owned and moved across the country to Las Vegas. It was a big adventure, and the year was better than we could have ever asked for. We’re moving back home to Missouri in just three short days, so I decided that this was a great time to do a “year in review” in photos – they’re so fun to look back on and remind me of all of the good times we have had.
Warning: this post has a LOT of pictures. Like, a lot. Also, I tried my best to put them in order but some are a little jumbled. Whoops.
