in writing . twenty thirteen

8 Jan


it’s hard to know where to begin when reflecting on the past year. . . 2013 was quite the ride here in pinksugarland; we embarked on some awesome adventures, but the highs and lows sure were extreme.

that said, thank you so much to all of you who have followed along with us here over the past year (especially for your patience over the last while as we’ve adjusted to our new schedule with lila in school, and me being rather under the weather for the first four months of this pregnancy.)

tomorrow this little blog will celebrate it’s second birthday, and i can’t wait to share this coming next year with you all. it’s sure to be a pretty special year with another little one joining our family in the spring, and lots of other great things on the horizon. like last year, i’m hoping to find the time to share more of our favourite things, crafts, styles, and songs, as well as finally posting the kids’ bedrooms and some other projects around the house; however based on my success rate of increasing those posts over the last year, i’m not making any guarantees ;) what i can promise though, is to keep looking for bits of joy and beauty in the everyday, and documenting those moments as we go.

without further ado, the top thirteen posts of twenty thirteen:

13. our halloween celebrations

12. cole’s afternoon sink bath

11. experimenting with double exposures

10. how to wear floral shorts

9. lila’s room update

8. our stop motion camping trip

7. top ten of 2012

6. lila’s first day of kindergarten

5. an impromptu photoshoot

4. cole’s first birthday party

3. a profound loss for our family

2. lila’s paper bag princess party

and the highlight of our year. . .
1. a big announcement

thank you for being here :)

    I cannot wait to see what this year has in store for your family. I keep telling myself I am going to write a 2013 post and I still haven’t it’s hard putting all those words down onto one place isn’t it?

    I wanted to tell you that my kids watch your two camping trip videos every day. No joke. They’re only a bit younger than Cole and Lila and they just love them. :)
