I hope you all had a great Christmas! I definitely did. Matt and I drove back to our hometown in Arizona for the holiday. We ate a lot of food and spent a lot of time with our friends and family. Matt and I continued our annual tradition of seeing The Nutcracker on Christmas Eve - our seventh year in a row. I wore this outfit on Christmas day because a thick sweater just feels right on Christmas, even when it's actually quite warm out. 

We got back to LA last night and are now on a bus en route to San Francisco! We're going to spend the next week or so with our friends. I'm excited to explore a new city and spend more time with Matt. I'm also excited to start a new year - I can't believe 2013 is over. Here are some things that 2013 brought us:

  • I went to New York City in January for the NRF Conference
  • I continued working for Madewell on weekends, and switched stores in January
  • I interned for the TJX and Windsor
  • I graduated from FIDM!
  • I got hired on at TJX as a Merchandise Assistant in their California Buying Office
  • Matt and I celebrated our third anniversary and went to an apple farm!
  • We explored LA a little bit more... 
  • We went to 3 Dodgers games thanks to the generosity of a coworker
  • We went to Newport on my birthday for Matt's cousin's wedding and got our first plants for our new apartment (which are sadly not living anymore)... 
  • My best friends had their baby! 
  • Matt and I saw Shugo Tokumaru and Andrew Bird in concert
  • We went to AZ to July 4th, Thanksgiving, and Christmas
  • I started blogging a little more consistently again :) 
Who knows what 2014 will bring? I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve!
