Dusting off the blog for the first time in just shy of 2 years to reconnect with an old group of friends in a year long list making project. As a nostalgic person I always enjoy the start of the New Year with a chance for some reflection on where I’ve come from and where I’m going. 2013 was certainly an eventful year with some heartaches and with some happiness. At this time last year I would not have predicted that I’d be in this position a year later.
My Christmas cards arrived on December 30th and Ukranian Christmas has not yet arrived so they are technically not going to be late! With them I planned on sending out a little 2013 year in review by the numbers, so here we go…
2 cats acquired – Kevin who I stole from the neighbours, and Lucy who I was given from the neighbours.
4 trips out of country – three trips to North Dakota, one trip to Florida.
1440 saved iPhone photos.
5 skills improved or developed – line dancing, throwing pottery, furniture refinishing, tiling and painting.
2 bucket list items complete – a trip to Disney World and a ride in a hot air balloon!
28 on the 28th – 2013 was the year of my champagne birthday.
8 months since I finally stopped biting my nails, a bad habit 20+ years in the making.
676 pictures posted on Instagram.
4 concerts attended – Eric Church, Oprah, Metric, and Jo Dee Messina.
Looking forward to what 2014 brings to the table!
