Best of November: A Month in Review

Who else thinks 2014 should be a lot farther than 25 days away?! Even though this year has gone by way too fast, I must admit I'm getting pretty excited about writing my "year in review" post for 2013. This year has been eventful and full of "firsts" for me, which are always fun to record. For now, though, let's review what happened at Semi-Charmed Kind of Life (and in my "real" life!) during the month of November:

November was full of fun events, as illustrated in my Instagram feed from the month. Jonathan and I either had people visiting us or were traveling every single weekend. My mom and sister came into town and helped me pick a wedding dress (I'm not sharing pictures of that for obvious reasons haha), Jonathan and I took our engagement photos, I ran my first half-marathon with my sister in Monterey, and my family was able to spend Thanksgiving together in San Diego. (Even our dog, Brady, was able to join us!)

I realize some of these songs are quite old; I'm not very up-to-date with the latest musical trends! Regardless, here are the songs I never got sick of hearing in November:
Let Her Go by Passenger // Safe and Sound, Capital Cities // Wake Me Up, Avicii
The Monster, Eminem ft. Rihanna // Sail, AWOLNATION // Demons, Imagine Dragons

How was your November? Did you read/watch/listen to anything good or visit anywhere special?
