Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you’re having a great last day of 2013. I’m keeping things pretty casual this holiday with some good friends and champagne at my place. I’m hoping to get some amazing photographs of the Space Needle fireworks like those above (click above images to visit original source). I can see Seattle Center from my apartment and am hoping with my long range zoom I can capture the magic that is a Seattle NYE, kind of a new year’s version of these photos.

This year has been in interesting one for me, full of both highs and lows, but definitely one I’ll always remember. I struck out on my own this year, got my own apartment all by myself, lived alone for the first time and spent my first holidays single. I also learned so much about myself this year, grew personally and professionally and have thoroughly thought about my dreams for the coming year. There’s so much more I hope to accomplish and I’m happy to track not only my outfits, but my progress toward some big goals here over the coming year. Happy 2014!
