a charmed life

This outfit is from a couple of weeks ago, but life has just been so hectic that I've neglected to post it.  Things are definitely going to be changing in the coming new year (some BIG changes), not only for this blog, but in my life as well.  I'll say that 2012 was a year of adventure, heartbreak, and joy.  Through all the ups and downs, however, I think it's safe to say that it's been the best year yet, which makes me very excited for all the possibilities that 2013 holds in store.

The one thing I want to mention about this outfit is my charm bracelet.  It was a gift from my mom and dad on my first day of school in August of 1995.  There was a dated school bus charm to commemorate the occasion, and through all my stages of life, the hobbies, vacations, and passions have been added slowly, charm by charm to the bracelet.  My favorites include a tricorn hat from our family trip to Pennsylvania, a horse from a trip to Williamsburg, and theatre masks to symbolize the drama programs I participated in during school.  This bracelet is one of my most prized belongings, however, I don't wear it much.  It was fun to pull it out this day and remember all the good times I've had with friends and family through the joyous jingling of the pretty silver charms.
