2013 was a really big year for me.

During the last 12 months I:

-purchased a home

-went on my 2nd Euro Vaca (Budapest, Prague & Berlin)

-was able to experience an overwhelming amount of beauty, culture & history exploring those countries

-got engaged! (I know… I’m sorry it took so long to share that lol)

-starting planning my wedding

-reached so many of my blogging goals!

2013 was a year of growth & that is never a bad thing so I am welcoming 2014 with open arms!

I apologize to everyone who subscribes to my blog and has noticed the amount of published posts have been fluctuating from day-to-day. I wish I could say blogging was a F/T job but for most of us bloggers… it isn’t. I work 2 jobs and when I walk in after being up & at it for about 15 hours – the motivation isn’t always there. My passion for writing and lifestyle blogging hasn’t changed so I plan to get right back into the swing of things once my schedule allows for it. This year I gained 2,000 followers on WP and have over 32,000 page views from 132 countries. I have also had the pleasure of  teaming up with companies such as Neutrogena, Nivea and Wet n Wild as well as some retail companies like Mandee, Dots Fashion and Fragrance Net.

Cheers to 2014 being the best yet!
