Overall, 2013 was really good to us.
We started the year settled into our new home, but had no idea just how much out-of-state adventure Bobby’s new job would bring us. We ended the year with a nice change of pace, however, and in 2014 are looking forward to exploring more of what’s right here in Arizona.
Back in January, I created a list of goals I hoped to accomplish, and I’m really happy with how most of them turned out. I read more books this year than in 2012, co-started a fantastic book club with Nicole, crossed the finish line at Ragnar del Sol and traveled across the ocean. And I would argue that I definitely cleaned house more than I cleaned our Chicago apartment – though I’d still categorize it as organized chaos most of the time.
I took my mom on a way overdue girl’s trip to San Fran and Napa. We also volunteered for several great organizations that gave us the chance to read to kids, help build a house and box up food.
There are some remaining goals on that 2013 list that are carrying over to this year, for sure. I’m currently compiling my thoughts, and in the meantime thought I’d share a few of my favorite posts from the past 365 days. No surprise, most of them involve travel!
- Order of the Phoenix, AZ: Harry Potter Party
- Lauren’s Visit to Arizona
- Lambeau Leaps
- Thankful Thanksgiving
I love taking the trip down memory lane. 2013 was an incredible year, and last night we said goodbye while also ushering in all the excitement to come in 2014.
Happy New Year!!
What are some of your goals for 2014?
