I am so relieved that 2013 is over and am glad to have had a chance to recap everything with Emmy for our 3rd year together (her 4th year). I love meeting new people through it and look forward to the next review with a fun look back over 2014!
The best part of the reviews is getting a chance to team up with other fellow bloggers who help co-host along side of Emmy.
