gone so soon?

It was really difficult picking my favorite things from 2013. Even though it's not pictured my two absolute favorite things this year was opening my antique booth and expanding to pop shop festivals and joining the crew at the Pulp Zine! It's been a lot of hard work, but I love every minute of it. If 2013 was this great, I can even begin to imagine how great 2014 will be. Below I tried my best to pick my top 6 favorite pictures/moments from this year, so enjoy!
It's hard to think that Rookie reader meet-up happened almost a year ago. It was probably one of my favorite parts of 2013, because I met my (now) good friend, Elyssa at the meet-up. The day was filled with glitter, pizza, and live music. How couldn't this be one of my favorite moments?! In 2013 I had my very first blog collaboration with Warby Parker. It was so much fun, and I can't wait to do another one! Earlier this year Cass and I ventured to Houston's Contemporary Art Museum, and oh boy, it was amazing. This was actually one of my favorite outfits all year. It's pretty simple (because it was scorching outside), but I just really, really like it and that's all that matters. In May some theatre kids and I went to watch the State competition plays in Austin, TX, and it was so much fun. We went to Barton Springs, and found some amazing local foods. I don't get to go to Austin very often, so this was really special for me (like the Rookie meet-up!). Last but not least, my senior year. High school has felt like a thousand years AND I AM ALMOST DONE. One more semester and I am out of high school forever. It's sort of weird and scary to think of what life will be like after high school, but in a good way. I am so excited to get out of here and begin my life!
2014 Goals:
- expand The Mad Mod Shop with men's vintage and more accessories 
- fill out more scholarships and actually turn them in
- take more photos
- watch more movies
- stay dedicated to my flower enamel brooch collection
- stop hoarding things I don't need!!!

Okay, I hope everyone has a fun and safe New Years eve! This year has been really great, and I'm so excited for 2014 already. Looking back on this year, I've realized this has probably been my favorite year (being alive) thus far! There were some really low points, but so many great events made up for the not-so great ones. Plus I'm already planning the next Pop Shop festivals I'll be involved with (there's going to be one at the beginning of January and I will have info soon)!
