Where did this year go? I seriously still write 2012 sometimes — yes, I am archaic and still write out the date on occasion. I know this blog is relatively new, but I still thought it would be fun to rewind this year month by month in Instagrams and photos.
Last year’s New Year’s resolution was to begin painting again. This was my first painting of 2013.
Refining my greeting card making skills…rubber stamps are hard.
Went on an incredible trip to Thailand, the land of smiles. We made some great memories that I will value for years to come. I hope to go back to Southeast Asia again some day, preferably sooner rather than later!
The trip continued into Bali. Beautiful design and natural landscapes were everywhere you looked (except the monkeys, they were creepy as shit).
Got to see this lovely lady get married. It was a night to remember…I think.
A relatively tame month, but a coworker did bring me these beautiful wild flowers just because one day. Those are always the best. 🙂
This blog was born! Also, celebrated a birthday.
Visited Music City for the first time for a friend’s bachelorette weekend. It is such a cool city, I’m kicking myself for not visiting sooner despite only being 3 hours away while in school.
Got to watch another friend and beautiful bride on her big day!
Took a trip up to see my friend, Elizabeth, in Virginia and got to see my favorite band, The XX ,along the way.
Took advantage of my close proximity to the Blue Ridge Mountains by going apple picking (and getting apple cider donuts, duh) with these lovely ladies and by hiking near Caesar’s head. Check out this vista:
Visited Denver for the first time, but my wallet did not. I left it at the gate before boarding and it did not make it to Denver before I left. Despite having no money (thanks for spotting me, Laurel!), we still had a great time.
Also, got to explore downtown Asheville for the first time. If you’ve never been, do it now.
Taking a stroll through the park to clear my head during work. Yes, this is just a few feet from my office, need to take advantage more.
Perusing through one of my favorite gifts this year, The Wes Anderson Collection. An awesome read, for those as obsessed with him as I am
When I put this year into perspective like this I realize what a truly awesome 12 months it has been. Despite all of my complaining, I am very lucky to live in such a great place, to be surrounded by such great people, and to have had as many adventures and great memories as I have. Thank you so much for reading this blog and for helping it grow. I can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store.
Happy New Year everyone!
