Happy New Years Eve from Katelyn!

Laura's in Nashville, Syrus is in Muskegon, the fiancé and our other roommate is at work....so that leaves me here, home alone this year. I was feeling a little sad about having to spend this year's NYE alone, but then I thought about how grateful I am for things in my life. The year 2012 has been so good to me, and I know for a fact that 2013 will be the best yet because I get to marry the love of my life. So while I'm reminiscing about my year while drinking some Spanish wine, I thought I'd share it with everyone else out there who also might be stuck at home on NYE.

I was so lucky to be able to go back to Spain for 4 months after Christmas and experience everything all over again, but with the most AMAZING familia ever. My first semester was really rough with a not so great home stay, but my new Spanish Family felt heaven sent.


Here's my roommate Allison with our little sister Sara :)


Here we are on our last night all together. Os echo de menos muchísimo!

Not to mention I met a plethora of other amazing people who still are holding a piece of my heart with them.


This girl (Cat) was my friend since day one in that Madrid hotel, where everyone was alone and awkward. Not to mention...she ordered duck pate for our first meal because we were so clueless ;)


Here are some of the year students through ISA Granada. Such amazing human beings.

Like life couldn't get any more beautiful...Alex visited me TWICE in Spain and his mom came along once too! We all got to spend time together with her Spanish friends (and now Alex and my's friends).


Here we all are in Avila after lunch and a nice stroll through the city.


The Spanish really know the meaning of quality time with family and friends, and I'm eternally grateful for that.

After my classes were all done my family visited! Then we all headed back to the U.S. together....but not after checking out Paris for a quick two day trip.


My Stepdad took this photo while he, my mom, my dad, me and stepmom were all in Paris. I'm so blessed with all four parents that I have! :)

During the summer, Alex and I saw one of our friends get married on the famous blue bridge in Grand Rapids.



Us with the beautiful bride, Mal. <3



After classes and graduation, I'm pretty spent. Can't wait to take a little vacay with my man and his mom in a few days! We're off to Mexico and California for a little over a week. Stay tuned for Laura's update of her exciting 2012 and that killer NYE outfit she's wearing tonight!

Happy NYE everyone! Be safe! And as far as New Year's Resolutions go...I'm going to aim to be a more Godly woman, healthier, and put my talent and time to use by volunteering more. What's yours? 

Until next time!

Xoxo,

K
