Well, i’ve been a blog slacker as usual and not prepared for the turn of year at all. But having just read lots of your lovely blogs and their 2013 re caps i was feeling inspired to do one too. And i have to say i’m glad i have. Going back through the old archives here at RTH has been eye opening, joyful and inspiring.
If i ever have any doubt to whether i should carry on blogging or not, this here has expelled that. It is so wonderful to look back on what i have been wearing this past year, and not only that what i have been doing, feeling and thinking.
2013 has been a rough year for the Turone household. Starting off the year with loosing everything and starting all over. Its been a tough year but lately hubs and i have reflected on how resilient we are, how tough it has been and yet how far we have come. We are both in agreeance that 2013 was the year that knocked everything back down to rubble and we spent the rest of the year just licking our wounds. 2014 will be our year. We already have so much exciting stuff planned it makes me excited and happy to be here. It makes me appreciate that sometimes you have to go through the bad to then be able to see the good.
So with all the hearty, touchy feely, emotional stuff out the way, here are my fave picks from 2013!!
Its so funny looking back through the year, i can see my wait loss journey begin in the may and meet my target weight in September, which has to be one of my proudest points this year. Wanting to loose weight had been high on my agenda for a while but something i just could not get in the mental head space for. But finally i did it and i’m SO much happier in myself for it. Christmas has seen a few pounds gained but im psyched to start healthy eating again as soon as the New Year rolls in!
I also saw my style change this year. Not tremendously, i blatently still love me a good dress, but with the weight loss came a sense of experimental time with my style. I embraced more skinny jeans and figure hugging clothes which i would never have looked twice at previously.
Im really excited to see where my style will go in 2014!
Which leads me finally to you guys. You wonderful lot.
I can not express how truly grateful i am for each and everyone of you, for tuning in to this small fry blog, once a week or once a year. For your wonderful comments and support.
But mostly for making this girl feel loved.
Thank you endlessly.
So 2014, bring it on, yes?!
