Hello Sweet Cheer: Saying Farewell to a Great Year: 2013


Saying Farewell to a Great Year: 2013

Happy Monday, friends!

     I hope you had a great Christmas with family and friends...because it's on to the New Year!  I'm VERY excited about 2014, but before I go into too much detail about that, let's remember 2013 and all it brought!  First up, my year in Instagrams...

Next, because I love music, here are my top 10 favorites songs of 2013!

10 Royals || Lorde
9 When I Was Your Man || Bruno Mars
8 Roar || Katy Perry
7 Wagon Wheel || Darius Rucker (cover)
6 Suit and Tie || Justin Timberlake
5 Better in the Long Run || Miranda Lambert feat. Blake Shelton
4 See You Tonight || Scotty McCreery
3 Drink a Beer || Luke Bryan
2 Redeemed to Redeem || Austin Stone

My favorite song of 2013 with the MOST plays on iTunes...

1 Story of My Life || One Direction

Annnd here are the top 10 most downloaded songs of 2013 (according to iTunes purchases)!

10 Mirrors || Justin Timberlake
9 Royals || Lorde
8 Roar || Katy Perry
7 Stay || Rihanna
6 When I Was Your Man || Bruno Mars
5 Can't Hold Us || Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
4 Just Give Me a Reason || Pink
3 Radioactive || Imagine Dragons
2 Blurred Lines || Robin Thicke

And the most downloaded song of 2013 is....

1 Thrift Shop || Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

     Can I say I'm completely satisfied with the number one?  No, I'd love for it to have been Radioactive or Roar or Mirrors, but facts are facts!  On to the year I've long awaited...

     This year holds many changes, lots of newness and some pretty scary prospects.  I graduate in May and then I have to start being a real adult...with real debt...and real car payments...and real responsibility!  I'm excited and freaked all at the same time!  I'm doing my best to enjoy this winter break as it is my last time to have FIVE weeks to relax with little to no obligations.

I'll leave you with some of my favorite pictures from this year!

Hoping you have a wonderful week and a very Happy New Year!
