002: twenty thirteen

my iphone (almost!) replaced my dslr as it is just so handy to take everywhere and it has really helped document this whirlwind of a year. whilst i've been absent for just over half a year on this little blog of mine i can't think of a better way to round up the year with a post of all my iphone photographs from 2013. however, having just written that i've only just realised i got my iphone in may so there are a few months missing! but i hope you enjoy my almost a year round up as much as i enjoyed reminiscing on everything that has happened. i really love seeing these posts from people and utter my favourite has been lyzi's from being little, but please feel free to leave your own links to your 2013/round up posts.
