January 12, 2013 marked the 3 year blogiversary of little ole Sandy a la Mode blog!  It’s crazy to think that this little part time job / part time hobby of mine has been around for 3 years already.  Lately, it’s definitely been evolving into a fashion + mom + Austin picture blog, but I’m totally OK with that because I feel like that defines a lot of who I am right now.  A fashionista, new mom, who loves taking pictures of her baby.  But as promised at the end of this year, for this 4th year of blogging, I am going to go back to my bloggy roots a little bit and ensure to sprinkle in some more recipes, crafts and inspirations.  Anyhow, I am soo grateful for you, my loyal readers.  Thank you to all those who have read from the beginning and welcome to all of you new(ish) readers.  I hope you decide to stay around!  For this blogiversary celebration, I wanted to take a trip down memory lane and highlight some of your + my favorite posts!  I guess this can double up as my “year in review” post that I never did for the New Year!  😉
