Day 365!


December 31, 2013
{Pittsburgh, PA}

Wild New Years Eve with chicken noodle soup and sprite...
spent sick on the couch, womp!
All this moving and craziness has caught up with me I think.
Brett and I spent the night hanging on the couch watching movies
(but of course we still counted down to the new year with a smooch!)

Happy New Year!
That's a wrap for the 365 Project of 2013!
Onto 2014!*
