You're In Brookelynn: 2012 Recap!

2012 Recap!

Well, it's been an interesting year with a lot of interesting moments! I started this blog back in March, and I've already began growing with it, and hope to continue in 2013! So here are some of my favorite posts/moments from 2012!

 1. I cut my hair...twice!

A Weight Off My Shoulders // New
All throughout high school, I had grown my hair out to the length you see on the left...I didn't change it up much, because I had just begun embracing my big curly hair. But earlier in the year I decided I needed a change, and cut it to my shoulders! Not a huge difference to me really. But then before the school year started, I decided I wanted an even bigger change, and chopped it all off! A lot of people ask me if I miss my long hair; sometimes I do, but most of the times I don't. I love my short hair!

2. Visited Alabama

As you may or may not have known, my freshman year I was in my college marching band, playing the tuba (yes I am 5ft fall and played the sousaphone), and earlier this year NIU went to Alabama for a bowl football game, so we got to tag along! NIU was selected for the Orange Bowl this year so the marching band gets to go to Florida, so I am a little bummed I didn't join again this year! Anyways, this trip was fun, it was my first time in the south, and the first time I saw an ocean!

3. Moved into an apartment!

I moved into my new apartment this past spring, my first apartment ever! I've had so much fun decorating and cooking and doing actual adult stuff (except for bills and stuff...). I have no idea where I will be living next year but that will surely be an adventure as well!

4. Some favorite outfits

Working Girl // Just You and Me, Punk Rock Girl

So I suppose I started this blog as a style blog, you could say, so here are a few of my favorite outfits I've put together throughout the year. I've learned a lot about my personal style over the past year; about what I feel comfortable in and new styles to play with. I'm excited to be doing more outfit posts in the future, for sure.

5. Sappy boyfriend stuff

This year Skylar and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary! It's strange, because I feel like it's crazy it's been that long, and on the other hand I feel like we've been together forever. But we've learned a lot about compromise, and about each other, and I think we'll be able to head into the new year with some new adventures. The second picture is what I gave him for Valentines Day this year, which was before I even started blogging!

6. Yellowstone!

Wyoming In Photos // A few more photos from the West
 This year, my family had a reunion in Wyoming and I was so excited to visit Yellowstone! I hadn't gone on a family vacation in years, or an actual vacation period, so I was even more excited. It was so beautiful! The weather was amazing, and I had so many fun experiences. I really want to go back in the fall sometime.

I hope you'll continue blogging with me in 2013! I'm excited! Do you guys have any big plans for 2013?
