I'm a little late on getting this post up, but I've done it for the past couple of years and felt off because I hadn't yet. I also realized that it's way too long, and quite possibly not that interesting because you've already seen all of these photos before, perhaps more than once. Starting to feel like this post is more my own (public) diary of the past year, which I'm fine with. By the way- I don't know how 2013 can top 2012...it was such an awesome year. Anyway, here are my favorite posts of 2012 :)
In January, I curated a sale for Joss & Main, helped with a Refinery 29 organizing article, and organized my makeup brushes:
I also spent more time with my camera that same month and took maternity photos for my friends Adam & Elaine (who now have the cutest baby I've ever seen).
I also spent time organizing my handbags in a storage bench:
made some valentine cookies in February:
Finally completed our wedding invites in that same month...
Organized my necklaces in April:
