Goodbye 2013! (Year in Review)


It's the last day of the year!!! Whoop de whoop! 2013 was generally a good year on the blog! A lot of things happened that were totally beyond my expectations...i'm truly grateful to God for everything. Started a lot of series/categories this year; some that never continued, some that are still a work in progress and some that have blossomed/will definitely continue. I see new ones coming up in 2014 tho, don't know what they are yet..but...yea, till then *hehe*. In this post, i'm going to be "highlighting the highlights" of each month of 2013...enjoy! :D
Before 2013 started, i made a decision to start writing posts for the men and not just the women, so i began the blogging year with posts for the men
