Since 2012’s year in review post was pretty popular, I decided to make one for 2013 as well. It’s a really nice way of looking back on everything I accomplished over the year— most of the time I don’t feel like I really do much of anything.

But this year, I did all of this…

Registered for my first half marathon.

Planned my fashion for my spring break trip abroad.

Felt things about the Boston Marathon bombing, and then wrote about these feelings (and also graffiti-ed my new shoes a bit).

Wrote out all of the things I’ve learned about half-marathon training so far.

Ran my first half-marathon, the Oklahoma City Memorial Half (a double post epic).

Felt things about the May 20 Moore tornado, and then wrote about these feelings.

Felt things about having dreams and goals, and then wrote about these feelings.

Moved into my own apartment, and began cooking + trying to save money at the grocery store.

Made my own no-sew curtains (that still look rather fetching).

Registered and trained for my second half-marathon. Was less of a humblebragger about this one.

Made my own Katniss Everdeen costume for Halloween.

Ran my second half-marathon, the Route 66 Half (full recap coming soon, I swear!).

Revisited couponing + how I grocery shop six months after.

Thanks to everyone who has read Cuppycakes throughout 2013. Whether you’re a loyal follower or this is the first post you’ve ever read, I’m pleased as punch that you’re here. I hope I can bring a little color, excitement, or even just a unique thought to your web browser throughout 2014.
