another year

chambray (similar)
boots (similar)

2012 was good to me. 
– this little blog of mine grew a lot and has become one of my favorite things. 
– my roommate moved in with me at the end of the summer and i’ve loved sharing an apartment with her. 
– i started dating my dude. i’m a lucky girl. 
– i had a lot of good time with my sister
– i started living a healthier lifestyle and have never felt better. 
…..there’s gotta be more, right? 
i’m looking forward to what 2013 will bring me. 
graduating, a job, maybe a move to a new city, new opportunities, and lots of cat-related things, i’m sure. 
oh, and more good times with the people i like the most.

    • And I thought you looked like you'd "gotten healthier" in the last few months, aka: like you'd lost weight. You look gorgeous, as always! 🙂

  10. Reading through the list, I was like, "Hello! Why isn't there anything cat-related?" But low and behold, I just had to keep reading.

    Happy New Year, Lauren! I think you and I should move to the same city in 2013. We're looking to move too. 😉

    I say that move to a new city includes So Cal because I could really use some interior decorating & fashion help! 😉
