Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014

 

It may already be the 6th day in January but I’m finally getting around to sharing a New Year post. Blogging with a newborn baby is pretty challenging so everything I do these days takes a little bit longer :)

2013 was all about having a baby. Almost my entire year was consumed by being pregnant and giving birth to my baby Lincoln. It was one of the most exciting and hardest times in my entire life. I took a picture each week of my growing belly starting at week 14 when I felt like I had the slightest bump and I can’t believe how tiny I looked at that point compared to the big belly I ended up with.

I gave birth to my little guy on November 14th and it feels like so long ago already. It has been such a whirlwind with the hospital stay, nights of virtually no sleep, visits from family and friends and the craziness of the holidays.

On the blog front I shared my weekly outfit posts and I had fun with my remixing skills and not duplicating my outfits. Here’s a couple of my favorite pre-pregnancy outfits. I really missed non maternity clothes!

I shared tons of crochet projects. A couple of my two most popular patterns for the year were this newborn bow hat pattern and ribbed beanie hat pattern. I also shared some refashions, jewelry and DIY projects.

When I think about what I will be doing in 2014 it will start with going back to work in February (boo) and being the best mommy I can be to Lincoln. I honestly don’t know what direction this blog will go in but it will definitely contain lots of pictures of my new favorite guy. Other things I still love and want to continue to blog about are crochet (of course!), thrifty fashion (it’s been way too long since I shopped at the thrift store) and gardening (when it warms up.) I’m not setting any goals on what I want to accomplish and instead I’ll just see where this year takes me. I’ll just continue to share details about my life and my love for creativity.

Happy 2014 from the best thing that happened to me in 2013! It’s Lincoln in his fancy New Years Eve outfit :)
