2013 Year in Review

December 31, 2013

Hello, friends, and Happy New Year’s Eve!  I cannot believe it is the end of another year already and tomorrow is the first day of 2014!  Wow, shouldn’t we have flying cars by now or something??  ;)

I know everyone is publishing similar posts on their blogs, but I just can’t help myself, I’m jumping on the band wagon!  2013 was a year of personal growth for me.  I don’t have a big exciting bullet point list of all of the things I did this year, but I can say that I had a great year.  I really focused on my goals and where I am headed.  I also embraced where I am at and finally had the courage to start seizing some opportunities that have come my way.  It has been a really good year, but I have a feeling that 2014 is going to be even bigger and I am so excited for all that is to come!

All of that being said, there were plenty of great moments in 2013; allow me to share!  I did quite a bit of travelling this year starting in Boulder, CO where my mom and I visited my brother and his wife.  My next stop was the Big Island of Hawaii, a truly once in a lifetime experience that I am so grateful I was able to share with one of my best friends.  Last but not least, I went on (another) road trip with The Boyfriend to San Francisco for the Outside Lands festival where I saw Paul McCartney perform live – it was so incredibly AMAZING and definitely a highlight of my year!

And, of course, there are the outfits!  I have to say that since starting this blog, I feel I have been able to really develop my personal style.  And since I’ve gotten a new tripod and spent more time really using my DSLR, I think my photos have (vastly) improved.  In a (totally unrealistic) attempt to keep this post short, here are the highlights – my most popular, and some of my personal favorite, outfit posts from 2013:

Wow, what a year!  I am so grateful for all of the amazing opportunities that have come my way and even more so for all of the wonderful people in my life, including all of you, my readers old and new!

Do you have any exciting plans for tonight?? Given the fact that I was feeling so lousy yesterday because I am fairly certain I either had food poisoning or a very nasty, rapid flu, my plans mostly involve the couch, some Gatorade and maybe a couple movies, par-tay!  ;)

As always,  thanks for reading :), Kristi
