So, here it is, the last day of 2013. This is all kinds of crazy. I mean, I know time passes but, gosh, doesn’t it seem like the older you get the more quickly time passes? I wonder why that is…

While sitting here watching The Twilight Zone marathon {an annual tradition in my home}, I started reflecting on the past year and thought, why not share some of my favorite moments with you all? Some are blog posts, some are pictures from InstagramPinterest, or Flickr, and others are things that happened on Facebook.

But before I get started, I do want to thank you all for sharing your lives with me. I enjoy celebrating the good times with you and {virtually} embracing during the bad times. In 2014, I pray God’s blessings upon you and your family.

1. Biggest Accomplishment

Run for God 5K {Living Outside the Stacks}

One of my goals for 2013 was to run a 5K and I did it! On 29 June, I participated in the Run for God 5K to benefit the Amen Center. Crossing that finish line gave me a sense of accomplishment and pride that I hadn’t felt since I finished Basic Training over 20 years ago.

2. Viral Pin

Shoe Quote {Living Outside the Stacks}

This photo of mine became one of my most popular pins on Pinterest. I have a thing for shoes, so it makes sense.

3. Creative Fashion

Blue Cardi, Mustard Striped Tee, Floral Skirt, and Oxfords {Living Outside the Stacks}

One of the things I blogged about most consistently this year is fashion. I tried to not only share my own personal style with you all but I tried to incorporate some new things into my wardrobe. The biggest two being color and pattern. So this year was all about pattern mixing, something I was fond of but had never really considered for myself.

4. Favorite Photo

Starbucks {Living Outside the Stacks}

At the beginning of 2013, I signed up to participate in a 365 Project on flickr. Unfortunately, I didn’t complete the challenge, but I was able to capture one favorite shot and this is it. It was a candid shot for the “Street Photography” theme. I like it because the man seems lost in thought, totally oblivious to the buzz of patrons around him.

5 things im sorry my kids will never experience {Living Outside the Stacks}

Sometimes, I suffer from moments of nostalgia for the things of my youth. And it strikes me as odd sad that there are things that I experienced that my children will never know.

What were some of your favorite moments from 2013?
