2013 Year in Review

I am both excited and in disbelief that 2014 is right around the corner. 2013 was such a roller-coaster of emotions for us. Of course the most exciting thing being that we found out we're having a baby. The joy that we felt the day we found out... that's something I'll never forget. 

So here is a year in review, as seen through the eyes of this little blog of mine.

Favorite moments of the year (as if there was any doubt):

Favorites from the spring:

Favorites from the summer:

Favorites from the fall:

Favorite Maternity Outfit (so far):


There you have it... another year marked off. And now it's on to 2014 and we're so excited for this new year. We get to meet our baby girl and start a whole new adventure as a family of three. I'm off until after Christmas so enjoy the holidays and I hope you all get everything you wished for. Cheers everyone!

You've been stylish all year, Yi-Chia. A big part of this year has been you becoming a mother. I guess my favorite outfit from the outfits you've selected is the "Makes a Statement" outfit with the colorful dress and the chocolate brown boots. Just like chocolate, you are nothing but sweet, and so has been your style. Take care of yourself and Happy Holidays.

I took a break from visiting some of my favorite bloggers on the holiday season due to time restraints. But girl you had a great year both in your personal life and fashion-wise. Loved the announcement and gender reveal. So many great outfits. A Lilac Dream is my absolute favorite of yours which I even featured on my blog if you remember. =) Your new maternity favorite is mine as well. You always look great wearing lace.

Happy 2014!! A Great, exciting year ahead for you. =)
