twenty fourteen // year in review.

Another year down! I reviewed 2013 around this time last year and it's such a fun post to look back on. Here's a look at 2014...

January proved to be a slow month as we struggled to get back into the swing of things after a long vacation. We cooked a lot, enjoyed the new Yale SOM building, and celebrated C's birthday. (Remember that time I took my blog private?)

February had so much snow, my birthday, and chocolate pudding.

March was busy with traveling to Istanbul and Athens, C spent a week in Israel, saw Jersey Boys, took a cooking class, and I learned photoshop (sorta).

April was exciting because we found out C would be spending the summer working in Austin! As the weather finally started to get warmer, we explored Mystic, saw Motown with the moms, and made a quick trip to Baltimore for Easter.

May meant giving up sugar, lots of face masks, delicious chicken broccoli mac & cheesethe best smoothiemy first guest post, and a trip to the beach to celebrate this bride!

June started off with a wedding in Dallas before we headed on to Austin to move C into this temporary home for the summer. Otherwise, the month was filled with super long hours at work.

July included two trips to Austin, a discovery of my new favorite makeup, baked oatmeal, our 1 year wedding anniversary, and a round up of some of our favorite restaurants in Austin.

August was jam-packed every weekend. C returned from Austin just in time for Alex's wedding, I visited the Birchbox store and the BITE Lip Lab. We took an impromptu trip to Kennebunkport, ME and then met up with friends in Deep Creek, MD. We rounded out the month with a day date to Essex and Guilford. CT.

September (luckily) was a bit more low key. I shared my favorite mascaras, finally read WILD, and we surprised C's dad in Baltimore for his birthday. The month ended with a Needtobreathe concert in NYC.

October gave way to cooler temps and beautiful fall colors both in CT and in Vermont. I started learning calligraphy over the summer and got really into natural skincare.

November came quickly (along with the holidays!). I switched to natural makeup, made the best pasta ever, watched a lot of Netflix, read a lot of cookbooks, and celebrate Thanksgiving in Baltimore.

This brings us to parties, shopping, decorating, party mix, cookies, all the things. We made a quick trip to Charlottesville, VA before spending Christmas with both families and then we're jetting off to Cali!
