I've enjoyed reading several Year in Review posts from fellow bloggers and decided to do one of my own. It was fun looking back through the year via old posts and photos. 2013 was quite a challenging year for me and my family, but there were also several great events and things to celebrate. Have a look back with me :)
I was contacted by a company called Umba Box to have my Woodland Magnets included in one of their monthly boxes! A great way to start the year!
I was featured on A Paper Proposal after one of my clients had their wedding featured on the site. I was given a free month of advertising...woohoo!
It was also Harley's 7th birthday!
We brought home our baby calf. Wow, has it been almost a year already...I need to get an update pic! He's the chattiest calf we've ever had!
April was a very difficult month. My brother's passing is the hardest thing I've ever experienced. I think of him everyday! And being an only child is a whole new experience for me.
But April was also a good month. I celebrated my 30th birthday and had a great day!
I got my first (and maybe only!) tattoo! A Freebird in honor of my brother.
After etching beer mugs for an organization that raises money for children by growing mustaches, I was invited to their awards ceremony Stashe Bash.
We broke ground for my new studio!!! I still can't believe it's almost done!
I was featured in Bead Chat Magazine after sending some of my wooden buttons for designers to use in their pieces.
Girl's Trip to visit my parents. I hope we can make this an annual event!
My parents also celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary!
Even after Jesse's surgery, we made awesome progress on my new studio!
My dad celebrated his 60th Birthday!
And a picture of my "sister" (Jesse's brother's girlfriend) Melissa and I at Thanksgiving.
Record sales in my Etsy shop. I am definitely hiring help next year!
Though I'm happy to see 2013 come to an end, it was nice to look back on all the good things that happened in 2013 as well.
