Sometimes, I lose sight of this blog and why I started it. I originally started it as a newlywed to document my new life as a wife. Through it, I have met and made many new friends, learned how to network, evolved as a person…I could go on and on.
But sometimes, life passes too quickly and I forget how much we have done in a year, and then I am once again so grateful to have this little ol’ blog to look back and reflect on as 2013 comes to an end.
I tend to get whiny, when things get too busy, but I do know how lucky I am. I am so fortunate to have a family I am close to, a husband who I love the ish out of, a few very close wonderful friends I can count on, and even more friends that I get to have fun with!
In 2013, Jason and I took our first plane ride together flying to Las Vegas to celebrate my twenty-ninth! We took a trip South to see our friends get hitched, while seeing old friends who live out of town.We also flew to NYC to see our friends get married in August; last week we drove to St. Augustine for a little us time to regroup between semesters/my birthday. And I went on a cruise for Jennifer‘s Bachelorette Trip. We traveled well in 2013, for sure.
I started to really meal-plan and be very real with my weight loss struggles. I have a long way to go, but I feel good with what I have learned and done in 2013, and can’t wait to grow upon that next year.
Jason found out he can no longer wear contacts, and so for the first time in six-ish years, I have seen Jason only wear glasses. Oh, and he has been on strike from cutting his hair since March. #hippie.
I went to my first blog conference, only knowing one person, and stayed in a hotel by myself for the first time, ever.
I coordinated several events that people actually paid me for, this year, which was awesome!
What are some of your favorite, personal moments of 2013?
