2013 - A Little Recap
I would rather focus on the positive – I had some really fun trips, twice to Door County, Wisconsin, and once to Mackinac Island, Michigan; to New Hampshire for the 4th of July, an early birthday trip to Las Vegas in September to see Motley Crue, and a trip to end the year in Seattle to see my football team, the Seahawks.
I saw one of my favorite bands, LA Guns, not once but twice!
I also completed a 27-mile bike ride in September which might not sound like much to some, but I did it on a really heavy beach cruiser style bike while everyone else, the professional riders, had their skinny-tired, stream-lined bikes. I am glad I did it and I really pushed myself. There were lots of hills – much like in my real life this year! But sooner or later, you get to cruise down the hills, too!
I also was the chair person of an Animal Walk that raised over $3,000 for Secondhand Hounds – so I did good for the animals, too!
Everything that was good about 2012 (now that was a great year!) was still in my life in 2013 and I need to appreciate that fact, and I do! 2013 was the year I really expressed gratitude and counted my blessings of which I have many.
But I am very ready to move forward in this New Year, 2014, and to be better about documenting my life through my blog and also my personal writing and photographs.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
