2014: What I Did

How would I define the last year for me? Probably "settling." I didn't get a degree or start a new job, I started to settle in, own, and enjoy this next chapter of life; as a really young single professional. I loved life this year. I had so many afternoons at work where I felt dizzy because I was so hyper with all the good things happening. I hung out with my scattered family at any chance I got, adored my friends, and my sweet boyfriend Hunter was SO good to me! I'm pretty whiny and dramatic most of the time, but 2014 rocked, and I have no complaints.

Now presenting: my favorite memories from 2014!

Thank you for sharing this past year with me, and following along with perfectly Priya. I'm thankful for whatever bloggy friends I have made, and I honestly hope my rambley bunny trail writing and crooked toothed smile brings you some sort of encouragement. I truly hope this New Year brings you the best things, and you're LOVING 2015 so far.

I'm so glad you did this post! Going by month was such a great idea! As I was reading through it, I was like, "Hey I remember that! " including our style swap which I think we should make a monthly thing, are you down? :)

It looks like you had an amazing year full of experiences, family, and friends. I really wish we lived closer to each other as I think we'd have a blast together! One of these days, we need to meet up in the Bay Area. Or I need to make a trip to Nashville. It needs to happen.

Love you and your blog. I always look forward to hearing about what you've been up to and the latest outfits you've been wearing!

I know I'm really late to the party with commenting on this one but Priya it looks like you had a great year! Your blog is such a joy to read, I feel like your personality comes across so well and I love all the little quirky details you toss in about your life and your friends, it paints such a vivid picture. :) Sucks we don't live closer as I feel sure we would really hit it off over coffee or some such if the opportunity arose!!

ALSO that picture of you and Hunter and your brother is so lovely! I love black and white photographs and you all look so happy :) xxxx

Priya said...

Going back to read old comments. You are the sweetest Lauren, THANK YOU! We will meet someday :) :)

Priya said...

That is the kindest compliment Laila, thank you!! And likewise, I hope we get to meet someday.
