This year has been such a fun ride! It was my first full year of blogging, and it has been such an amazing experience. It's hard to remember a life before the blog! I'm usually too overwhelmed to do 'a year in review' type post (too much content to pick from), so this year I decided to keep in simple. I broke it down into four seasons and listed four great memories that I have from each.


♥ I got back in school for the first time in two years. I've never been more excited to learn.
♥ I got a new iMac, along with an updated version of photoshop the first week of January. Both tools had a huge effect on what I could do with my blog.
♥ My sister Kristi helped with lots of pictures because it was so cold out!
♥ We got snow (twice) and spent both days at the Clinton library sledding the hills.

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

♥ I had a deep obsession with Chambray.
♥ I opened an etsy shop and styled lots of fun photo shoots for me and my friends.
♥ I got my first cat, Monkeycat, and she's since become a very important member of our little family.
♥ I made my first video!

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

♥ I went to Bonnaroo and saw Dan Deacon, She & Him, and tons of other favorites.
♥ Jake and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary.
♥ I turned 25. My blog turned 1.
♥ I got to revisit the historic bath houses in Hot Springs!

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

♥ I went to New York during fashion week and met so many great blogger friends!
♥ The tripod and I broke up. Corey started taking all my pictures instead.
♥ I wore lots and lots of orange.
♥ I got a dream job: getting paid to write about fashion.
Thank you to all of the wonderful readers who have followed my blog throughout 2010. I'm so grateful to every single one of you! I definitely think that 2010 will go down as one of my favorites. Let's hope for lots more great memories in 2011! Have a happy and safe new year, everybody.

Starr
