let’s review:


firstly, this blog has been my saving grace. it is something I thoroughly enjoy love. and have loved growing it so much more this past year. I started it slowly in october of 2010, to document my move to NYC. since I have written 192 posts ..167 of those were in 2012. I’d say that’s some major progress ..

LLinaBC top 5 posts of 2012

  1. {pinterest fails}
  2. {the BIG announcement} to move to chicago.
  3. I have no idea why, but this post from 2011 has stood the test of time ..& was a top runner in 2012 {hey curly hair}.
  4. {lovely little announcement} when [J] & I announced our TwoCoins etsy store opening!
  5. and, this {week in photo}

so maybe this review was for the best. it’s easy to focus on the bad {a whole lot of months of unemployment} and forget about the good {a happy relationship, a growing blog, a lot of travel, & many exciting opportunities}. I’m fortunate.

and am excited about taking on 2013.

brrrrring it on.
