WHAT A YEAR 2013 WAS! Whew! It’s seriously crazy to look back through the past 12 months and see how much my life has changed. I wanted to share with you some of my life moments.
1. Moved to Cali
After a decade in NYC I moved across the country to California. When people ask me where I’m from I still say originally from South Georgia and 10 years in NYC. This by far was the biggest moment in my life this year. (original post: here)
2. Drove across the country
Ya’ll words can not describe how incredible this trip was. I really suggest everyone taking this journey. Pack up your favorite person and head out on the road. We laughed nonstop and got to see this beautiful country we live in.
3. Shot my 1st Infomercial
This was seriously one of my dreams. I love infomercials and being a Style Expert for Instyler and talking hair was a dream come true. Look for a post in a few years with the full 30 minute video.
4. Got a car!
I know this sounds silly to other folks but I haven’t had a car since I moved to NYC in 2003. I am still madly in love with my Prius ie Tango.
5. Picked a wedding date
Happy happy day! I picked the special date I will become a wife to Jay Carlington. 4-12-14 (original post: here)
I still can’t believe I got to cover ‘100 Days to London’ Event in the past and recently ‘Road to Sochi’ in Times Square. These Olympic hopefuls are absolutely an inspiration to everyone and truly make America proud! (original post: here)

8. Took our Engagement Photos
I am still floating with excitement from these pictures. I couldn’t have imagined shooting them anywhere else but in New York City where we fell in love. I will cherish these pictures forever! (See all the pictures: here)
9. Hosted numerous live events.
*Suitcase Soiree, Fido Frenzy, OCI Mind Event, Top 10 Bachelors of the OC, Unlikely Heros
10. Lofti Ladies Bachelorette Weekend
With such a crazy year ahead I pushed my girls weekend up to this year. It was incredible to have some of my favorite friends all together. We laughed, drank by the pool, had a night on the town in the OC…it was absolutely perfect. I am beyond thankful for my dear dear girlfriends.
