Goodbye 2013

I don't think I am exaggerating when I say 2013 has been the best year yet for me.  Some pretty big things happened and it wasn't all smooth sailing but everything worked out for the best and I had a blast on the way.  2013 started with lots of excitement - we decided to move, put our flat on the market and two days later it was sold and our offer had been accepted on our dream home.  If only it carried on that easy!  After much stress we finally exchanged on May 10th and spent the next two weeks making it home.  A little boy came into our lives on January 19th and turned them upside down.  I don't think it is possible to love more than we all love him.  Tate most certainly has a mind of his own (which means he pretty much only eats jam sandwiches!) but that smile and little giggle can melt even the hardest of hearts.  I had no idea something so small could be something so big and have enjoyed every minute watching him grow.  

I've done a rough 2013 in outfits below, technically January is from February but I left myself with slim pickings in January!  Both my hem lines and my hair grew in 2013 and I am pretty happy with the result.  I feel more comfortable crawling around chasing after Tate knowing my bum isn't on display to the world.  I feel that I really developed my style this year and as a result it has become a bit more grown up and cutesy at the same time if that is actually possible!  I actually managed to ditch the black opaques this year too though it was kinda enforced as it was just so damn hot.  I still prefer my opaque comfort blanket but have finally accepted that getting my legs out is not actually that bad.   I hope you agree the photography has also improved, I have ventured from the security of a bedroom to the garden and have got Gray involved in taking my snaps.

Towards the end of 2013 I decided I wanted to start buying more unique independently made dresses.  Most of these are handmade in the UK which is something I am looking forward to investigating more in 2014.  If you can recommend any upstarting UK brands I should be checking out please let me know.

I have also had the most amazing time getting to know some of my blogging besties even better, you know who you are!  Thank you for your support and friendship over the last year, I can't wait to see your faces way more in 2014.  2013 didn't give me enough face time with some of you beauties though so lets make plans to rectify that in 2014, yeah.  Blogging really is the most amazing medium to meet lots of like minded lovelies, thank you to each and every one of my readers and those who take the time to comment.  Don't be a stranger, come chat to me on twitter.  I love a good natter.

Have a great time saying goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014 however you are spending New Years Eve tonight.  2014 is going to be our year, lets make sure of it!
