Year in Review | 2013

After looking back at all the wonderful things that made 2013 so memorable I've decided that the theme of the year had to be road trips. We took a hell of a lot of them. That and wearing the same dress on multiple occasions. Whoops. 

Cheers to you 2013! Thanks for being such a memorable and fabulous year for us. I can't wait to see what all 2014 has in store for us, besides finally being able to call Steven my husband of course!
