As 2013 comes to a close I wanted to share some of my favorite purchases of the year! I’ll compile some posts with remix recaps of these items and why I love them once the new year rolls around, but for now you can scroll through these labels to see the ways I’ve worn them:
On the Personal Front
This year has been full of both extreme highs and extreme lows on the personal front. Some of the highs were Benson and I both turning 30, my brother getting engaged, Benson’s sister getting engaged, a billion friends having babies, developing a great new community of friends from church, and Benson taking a big risk to switch job fields and thriving. There’s so much to be grateful for! Some of the major lows have to do with sicknesses and other unfortunate events in our families which I will share about in its own post sometime. (They don’t seem like appropriate topics to couple with an outfit post, you know?)
On the Blogging Front
On the blogging front, I entered my 3rd year of blogging (at 2.5 yrs right now) and I’m still enjoying it! I’ve been so grateful that in the midst of the family sickness I could come here and “escape,” especially in the moments when I need to feel a little to feel a bit normal. Also, family sickness aside, I’m incredibly thankful for all of you guys for taking the time to read whenever you can or comment or share with your friends or write to me telling me how this blog has made a difference for you. That makes all the difference for me and is largely why I happily continue to blog!
P.S. In 2014 I hope to write more often about some “behind the scenes” of the blog. Let me know if you have specific things you’re interested in hearing about!
