2013: From J-D

Yes, you read that year right. 2013 is what I meant. I have previously done these on NYE for prior years (2010, 2011, 2012) but I missed last year due to blogging lapse. So before I unleash the summary of 2014 tomorrow, I wanted to go back to the year prior to bridge the gap.

January 2013
January 2013: Began the year at Cannon Beach (top row), visited Seattle to celebrate one of my favorite people (bottom two left) and began my official weight loss journey with exercise and eating right (bottom two right)

February 2013
February 2013: Went super blonde and enjoyed my weekends (left), had a work trip to Napa (middle top), began to food prep regularly (bottom middle), visited Central Oregon with my Shanin & my Family (lower & middle right) & toasted Jay's promotion with our good friends (upper right)

March 2013

May 2013
May 2013: Just a pretty month! Spent time in Portland's Wine scene (left), saw my pretty friend with all the pretties at her shower (upper), loved these balloons trapped by my apartment (lower left image, story here) & exercised like a maniac be it neighborhood runs or hiking.
June 2013
June 2013: One of the best months of my life. Mexico for a wedding with my great group of friends and Italy with my Mom & Brother. So, so amazing (and more posts to come on these things).

August 2013

I love these posts! It's such a great way to remember the year. I can't wait to see this past year, 2014!

I do something similiar for my man every year. I go to Shutterfly and make him a scrapbook of our year together. I know he expects it for Christmas, but he still acts surprised every time!

Hope you have a wonderful new year :)
