Happy first Friday of 2013...

Happy first Friday of 2013, friends ♥ This week has been all about reflecting on the past year. What a year it was! I spotted this fun year-in-review layout over at Natasha's blog and felt inspired to make one of my own. (You can download Natasha's layout here and make one for your blog, too!) Natasha and I met at Blogshop in November, and she's a cool chick -- and a local web programmer/coding expert to boot. As I combed through my Instragram feed this morning, I realized that even though the year seemed to go by so fast, James and I crammed a lot of happy moments into each and every month. I know I've already written a little recap, so I won't go over everything a second time -- but having a visual is special. (Thanks, Natasha + Instagram!)

My New Year's Day post is becoming a reality over here, and I'm feeling good as the weekend approaches. I started reading this book on Monday, and I'm really into it. Unfortunately I kind of know what happens; I recently watched the movie and afterwards had one of those crap-I-just-watched-the-movie-and-didn't-know-it's-also-a-book moments, but the book is of course, much better. I also got hooked on this tv show when I stayed in NYE...I am somewhat embarrassed to say I watched until the wee hours every night this week to finish both seasons. It is the best show I've seen in a long time. I hate that I started watching it on James's work week...but I told him that it's so good that I'll happily watch it with him a second time. (Anyone else know what I'm sayin'?! It is so darn good. I have some strong feelings about season 2's finale...I don't trust that Brody. I think he's up to somethin'.)

Otherwise, I've spent my other time catching up on work projects for the new year, and I think I've nailed down that new hobby that I'm going to get started on. More on that later...

Until then, here are a few things from around the Web worth sharing:
