    Hi Guys! So glad to see so many people entering the Diario Shop giveaway! Thanks for all your continued support of this little blog of mine :)

    I wanted to take a little time to look back through some of my favorite blog posts (to share and create) of 2013. All the highlights are in the images above! 2013 was the first year where I felt this blog had a clearer voice an the content was really starting to represent what I wanted it to. I hope you enjoy looking back as much as I did!

    I’m always looking for new ways to share content, new collaborations and maybe a new column here and there. If you have any ideas, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

    Cheers to an even more exciting 2014!

      Wow, these are some really great posts. I missed a couple of them (like in home photo styling – love it!), so I’m off to read them now. Thanks for the recap.

      When I read “thoughts on turning 27”, I thought: “Ha, wait until she turns 31, like me. Looks like I turned 27 yesterday and 20 years ago, at the same time” :)

    2. Such a great round-up, reflection is always good for the soul :) Gorgeous photos and I love your ‘Save the Dates’!! Happy 2014!

      Your blog is so beautiful! I am so glad that Lindsay featured you in the Alive Lifestyle blogs round up or I never would have found it. I love the clean and simple look, and your home must be gorgeous!

    4. Everything! Just simply gorgeous! And what fantastic posts – I look forward to what you have in store for this new year, Cassie!

      I have always appreciate your candid and open approach when it comes to sharing your life here. I’m excited to see what 2014 brings for you! =]

        Thanks Kate. I never know if I’m sharing too much or too little. It’s finding that fine balance of telling the world everything AND keeping things private. Glad you enjoy following along :)

      • Kate says:

        That’s so true. I’m actually starting to share a lot more about myself on my blog this year. I’ll look to you and your past year for guidelines. =]

      I really love the cohesiveness of your site this year, as evident when I scroll through these different posts. It’s something I’ve been thinking about and working on for 2014 as well. All your hard work is paying off!

      • veda says:

        Thanks so much for the feedback Mara. Have a more cohesive space was one of my big goals for 2013. I think things are finally heading in the right direction. Best of luck in 2014!

      Yay, so happy I got a chance to meet you last year. Can’t believe it was already 4ish months ago, time flies. I’d love to make more of an effort to stay in touch in 2014. Hopefully see you again soon :)

    9. So many wonderful things!! I remember oooing and ahhing over those save the dates – truly beautiful! You’re such an inspiration, Cassie, and I can’t wait to see where 2014 takes you.
