To say 2013 came and went would be an understatement. I kept thinking it was just beginning and all of a sudden it’s over. How did that happen? I can honestly say that the stars were aligned this year. It was filled with an abundance of quality time with family and friends, lots of exciting and challenging projects that I thoroughly enjoyed and feel so grateful to have experienced, and plenty of growth for The Life Styled. I’m leaving 2013 with an overwhelming feeling of contentment, gratitude, and nervousness/excitement for what 2014 has in store. Here’s a look back at some of my favorite posts/photo shoots from this past year. I have to say I am so proud and grateful for my husband/resident photographer Ian Sheppard. Not only is he the love of my life and keeps me laughing to the point of tears on a regular basis, but he taught himself photography for this blog and I couldn’t be more amazed by his work. What a guy. Lastly, thank YOU, dear readers, for hanging out with me on this journey. This blog is my favorite project of them all, and I look forward to sharing more outfits, fashion inspiration, the occasional dog cameo, and a fair amount of cocktails with you in 2014. It’s going to be a good one!
