Oh what a year its been! We’ve made soooo many changes this year, its hard to believe it when I look back! On one hand it feels like this year has just flown by but on the other when i think about where i was sitting in my life exactly 1 year ago today i’m baffled at how different it is! This little blog of ours has seen some pretty fabulous times this year too! Thank you so much for all your support and for continuing to come back!! To finish out this crazy year, we decided to take a little trip down memory lane and share with you some of our favorites from good old 2013. Enjoy (and catch you on the flip side!)
