project 12 | December

i love having my years captured month by month and have loved keeping up with project 12 for the past four years! i am ending project 12 with 2017, however, and hoping to blog updates in a different way going forward. project 12 was really fun, and i have turned all of the posts into two shutterfly photobooks. i love having the memories to read back through, and seeing how we change through the photos each month! thanks for sticking with me on this project 12 journey!



DECEMBER


HIGHLIGHTS
i finished my third full semester of grad school this month & now only one semester stands between me and graduating with my masters! over Christmas break i started my two non-credit classes, but i will be continuing them during the spring semester. that's why i'm glad i took summer classes and only have two full time classes for the spring semester! this spring will be busy with these four classes and studying/taking my licensure exam. and then hopefully getting a job & buying a house!

our rabbit, Albie, got pretty sick during December and was having trouble breathing. we took her to the vet at the beginning of the month and her breathing got a little better. then it got bad again a few days before Christmas. it was a stressful time because we lost our bunny, Finn, last year around the same time due to GI issues. we found out that she had a really bad case of pneumonia. we started her on a 2-week course of medication, knowing it only had a 50% chance of working. but sadly a week into the medication, she stopped eating and started to be in pain. so, we had to say goodbye earlier than anticipated. she's no longer in pain and we got to hold her until she fell asleep, but it was really hard and we miss her a lot.
