Wanna know something dorky about me? This was possibly my favorite post to write all year. I just love looking through old posts and pictures and reminiscing about what happened this year. I hope you enjoy it too!
January started off with an impromptu makeover for Stripes and Polka Dots. I completed my New Year’s Resolution to eat salad for lunch everyday for a month, and took advantage of the mild weather by going on a lot of walks.
I started Tips for Better Blogging AND Share Your Sketchbook in February! We got our only snow day of the year and I visited my college roommate in Delaware. I also wrote a post about my family, which is one of my favorite posts ever.
I went to Blogger Blitz DC and we attended Brian’s cousin’s wedding in June. I published my first in this place post and went through a little outfit post phase, and shared my thoughts on ad swapping.
We started off August in the Outer Banks (and I had another great group of bloggers hold down the fort while I was away!) We later headed to New York for our one year anniversary, where I got to attend AltNYC. After that, it was back to school! You guys gave me some feedback, and then I relaunched my blog!
I turned 24 in October. Brian’s parents came to visit, I went to homecoming at my alma mater, and Brian went on his first flight. I also revisited our old Halloween costumes, since we didn’t dress up this year. (And can you tell that I got my iPhone at the end of the month? Here’s where the Instagram pictures start.)
I had lots to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. I also decided to start an email newsletter in November, and reformatted Starred this Week to accommodate my massive collection of Instagram pictures.
