Completed, One Year without Shopping

I have to make this quick.  It is raining like crazy today and I had to leave early for work so I wouldn't get caught in crazy traffic.

I have completed one year of not buying clothing. 

It is crazy.  I felt like it flew by and I for sure had the load lessened by my wonderful readers and friends.  Thank you all for sending me stuff, letting my borrow dresses, swapping with me, sharing with me, giving to me and most of all for supporting me in this.

I can't even begin to process this past year but all I can say is that I had one amazing birthday party that celebrated that this year was over and that 26 is going to be fresh and new.

Oh yeah, and today is my birthday.  I celebrated already this morning by getting a bagel.  *swoon*
