where i've been this year.

As 2013 is coming to a close, I can't help but reflect back on all the wonderful, exciting trips Justin & I have been able to take this year. I've been so lucky to have traveled to many, many new places, & I thought I would share exactly where I've been this year with you below. Any posts associated with our travels will be linked as well. Enjoy! 

where i've been in 2013

Oh, & please note: not all states are placed in their geographically correct positions.

In January, we traveled to Shreveport, Louisiana for Laura & Jonathan's engagement. Then, we drove a moving truck with a lot of furniture in it back to Wilmington. There was a very quick stop over in Dallas, & I think that counts. 

In February, we visited Charleston, South Carolina, & we took TONS of photos. This post has links to all of the posts from that particular trip.

In March, we visited & fell in love with Pinehurst, North Carolina. Justin attended a Gastroenterology conference. I walked around & took photos. We also trekked across North Carolina, visiting Winston-Salem, Hickory, Asheboro, & Charlotte, during a birthday road trip for Justin.

While I was visiting Shreveport for a month in May, I got to see my mom get inducted into Sigma Theta Tau, attend Lindsey's Bachelorette Party at Jazz Fest, attend Kelsey's graduation, celebrate Mother's Day, & stand in Lindsey's Wedding.

For the 4th of July holiday, we visited Savannah, Georgia.

At the very end of August/very beginning of September, Justin went to play in a golf tournament with his friend Tim, & I met them in Raleigh that weekend to see Louisiana Tech play. I also visited ECU in Greenville with Rebekah.

In October, we went back to Charleston to celebrate our first anniversary.

In November, I got to visit NYC for the first time, in honor of Laura's Bachelorette Party.

At the beginning of December, we finally got to cross Nashville off our to-travel-to list. And we stopped to eat in Asheville on the way there. And then, on the twenty-first, we flew in for a very Shreveport Christmas, arriving in Monroe for a Christmas celebration with Justin's side of the family. And on the day this post goes up, we will be headed to Dallas for a New Year's celebration, & later this week, we will be participating in Laura's wedding festivities!

We took a few road trips over to Myrtle Beach throughout the year also, mainly just to shop at their outlet malls.

I'm thankful to have visited all of these places, but most of all, I am thankful for a husband who is willing & able to send me to all of these places. I can't wait to see what kind of travel 2014 has in store!

here we are eating at one of our favorite travel finds: Loveless Cafe in Nashville

My travelling was actually pretty low key this year. I plan to visit some new places this year! Ive never been to Tennesee or Louisiana so those would be interesting trips!

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
