2013 in Review: Blog Edition

2013 can be summed up in one word: Change. Oh, so many changes! My first nephew was born. It is an exciting time for the whole family, because he is the first grandchild. I love that little boy more than he knows. S and I moved to another state. It was a welcomed change, especially considering the reason behind it. I'm really proud of my husband's professional accomplishments, as well as my own. Overall, it was an excellent year, and with my goal for 2014, I think this year will be even better!

Here are my 2013 blog post highlights:

We took our first "just because" trip to Leavenworth, WA. Gorgeous town!

I met my nephew three weeks after he was born.

We moved to Knoxville, TN, for my husband's new job.

I worked really hard, put myself out there, and landed the job I wanted.

We made an unexpected move within Knoxville. (The only unwelcomed change but worth it.)

We've had fun exploring our new city.

I celebrated an early Christmas with my family in San Diego.

One of my most popular posts (if not the most popular) was "I'm Okay with That." I guess we all need a reminder that beauty looks and feels different to everyone. Don't feel pressured to change in order to fit a mold. Change only because it makes you feel more comfortable, healthy, and confident!

2014 is going to be great! I'm enjoying it already. :)

I think "change" is an awesome way to explain your year. And it seems like ALL of this change was for the good and I'm so happy to have a window (i.e. blog) to look in on all of that goodness :-)
