2013 recap

2013 was a heck of a year. Newly married, we drove across the country to make the move to Los Angeles. My husband began his first job post-grad, and I began my acting career in LA. We settled into our apartment, made several fun trips, and focused on our life together. I made tremendous leaps in my cooking abilities, prepared myself for parenthood through my array of nanny jobs, and spent a lot of time creating a happy life. I’m hoping for even bigger and better things to come in 2014. But here are some of my favorite posts from 2013:
