2013 in Review

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to put this year to bed. It started off sooooo magnificently, but presented many unique challenges. I’m hoping maybe my lower key start this year will mean better things ahead for 2014. So without further adieu, here is my year in review!

January – I rung in the new year on the beach at Isla Mujeres Palace, dancing with my feet in the ocean, glass of champagne in hand.

You can also see the Cancun skyline in the distance. It was pure magic. We left Isla Mujeres to spend another stellar week at our second home, Le Blanc Spa.

February – February brought a lot of snow, and no real other activities for us.

March – March brought my first winery tours. Yes, really, they were my first.

April – In April we returned to Boston and Foxboro MA. It was right after the Marathon bombings so a trip to Copley square was a must.

May – May brought late spring cherry blossoms!

And a car accident 😦

June – My dad turned 70!

And I broke my ankle 😦

July – July brought a drive-in movie date of Despicable Me 2 for this broken shut-in.

And a lot of physio..

August – I tried out acupuncture for the first time for my very slowly healing ankle. It was AMAZING!!

September – I went back to work on light duties, but it was short lived because my long planned return to Vegas was on the go!

And I finally got to see the Grand Canyon!

October – Time for Canadian Thanksgiving.

And re-learning how to knit!

November – I got to go see Les Miserables with my Mom.

A great weekend with friends where I had my first ever slot machine winnings!

And then celebrated US Thanksgiving at Zehnders.

December – As always, some decorating for Christmas..

Another car accident, no pictures, still too upset, once again not my fault. Very very upsetting and frustrating.

In exciting December news, I found out on Christmas morning that I was published for the very first time!! It was in the Let’s Get Sketchy Sketch Inspired Christmas issue E-zine! I’ve never submitted to be published before, so my first submission and publication in one. I’m very flattered!!

There is a lot of scrapbooking talent in this issue, and the Let’s Get Sketchy blogging community is amazingly supportive!

I’m looking forward to a 2014 that is better than 2013. I haven’t given a lot of thought to resolutions beyond something that looks towards holistic health (mind, body, spirit, financial), and to travel more! I’m not sure how that works with wanting better financial health, but I’ll do my best to figure it out! I also want to blog and create more, so hopefully I’ll have more to say in the coming year as well.

Thank you to all my amazing supporters. Wishing you and yours all the best in 2014. Happy New Year!
