13 in '13 {linky party}

It's hard to believe that 2013 is soon coming to a close. To be entirely honest, I'm sad because this has truly been one of my most memorable years yet. It was full of fun and lots of personal goals; I can only hope 2014 is even better!! To remember all the fun times we've had in 2013, my blogging besties Kristin, Traci and I are throwing our annual End of the Year Linky Party!

  17. I got a fancy-schmancy new camera this year, too!! I feel so guilty that I still use it on 'auto' mode. (hangs head in shame) I just received a 2 hour camera lesson with a local photographer for Christmas...so I'm pumped to learn how to actually use the camera as more than just a 'point and shoot'! :)
