it was fun to look back on these blog posts. since the number "13" has been somewhat of my theme this year on the blog, i was attempting to make a list of just 13 of my favorite blog posts, but i could not narrow it down! instead, here's a pretty broad overview of 2013. sidenote: i linked a lot of stuff back to the original blog post the picture came from, if you are interested.
january was when i first began blogging! i started it at the very beginning of the year. here are some of my favorite posts from that month
