Best of 2013

it’s hard to believe that another year has come and gone. so many wonderful things happened in my life this year, so i thought i’d share some of the highlights with you.

+ the long distance part of mike’s and my relationship finally ended. thank goodness for that.

this photo was taken just before he surprised me for graduation. it’s one of my favorites.

+ i moved to Chicago.

+ mike and i celebrated one year of being together.

+ i participated in my first sprint triathlon (with my mom!).

+ i made many a good memory with my sister.

+ sam and i got to meet one of our favorite (former) Duke players.

+ i became an aunt!

+ my mom and i had the privilege of throwing my sister’s baby shower.

+ i enjoyed many a signature dinner (fries and a milkshake) from Cook-Out

+ i re-branded my blog to what it is now

+ i started offering virtual styling services!

although it’s not an inclusive list of all the wonderful things that happened this year, it’s a pretty darn good start.

i’ve been totally blown away by God’s grace, provision, and blessings in my life. i’m not anywhere i thought i would be, but i love that about life.

lastly, i want to say thank you to you, my readers. you guys are wonderful. you make blogging so much fun and i wouldn’t be able to do what i love without you. here’s to another fabulous year together.
