Today I took a little trip down memory lane and started hitting the "previous" button at the bottom of the page. There have been some great posts and some "what were we thinking even posting that?!" posts. There was that time we discovered gifs and a lot of cocktail recipes, usually predating a reunion. We've added a few fur babies to our respective families and both survived moving to new apartments. It has been a crazy, exciting, stressful, unfamiliar, wonderful year, so in honor of our baby's first birthday (because this blog is definitely mine and Leah's baby), I wanted to share a couple of our favorite posts from the last twelve months.
I really loved re-reading Leah's Keeping in Touch After College. As many of you know, keeping in touch was one of our major reasons for starting LL+CS after Leah moved to Georgia. Her post is applicable to any new-grad, but it really has a personal meaning to our own friendship.
Which leads me to another gif filled masterpiece, Reasons Chelsea and I are the Best of Friends.
We have also been partnering with Callie of Coffee and Cardigans for our newest project, Paperback Pourover, an online bookclub. This month we are reading Rich Bitch, and I was surprised to look back at our budgeting posts over the last year. 5 Ways to Stay Under Budget This Month might not show you how to effectively save for retirement, but as Leah always says, "every little bit counts!"
Now you know I wasn't going to let y'all get away without ONE coffee themed post, did you? Leah has some great advice on How To Make Better Coffee at Home that will keep you caffeinated AND save you a couple bucks when you skip the morning Starbucks line!
To all of our readers, old and new, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Every sweet comment, retweet, and page view puts a smile on our faces. Thanks for walking this journey to adulthood with us...we hope it has been entertaining!
Chelsea (+ Leah!)
