I can't say 2013 was one of my favorite years. Sure, when I look back, I had a lot of fun, but I distinctly remember being sad for a decent amount of time. My feelings about 2013 can be summed up with one quote:
+ I got a promotion and took a new role in Recruiting
+ I bought a new car
+ Celebrated turning a quarter of century old in Asheville with the best friends
+ I created a list of 101 things I'd like to accomplish in 1001 days
+ My dad turned 60!
+ I celebrated my 2 year work anniversary
+ The blog turned one!
- I lost both of my grandparents, on the same day
- A boy broke my heart
- I house-hunted for a bit, and then gave up
+ New Orleans for Jazz Fest
+ Asheville (spring at the Biltmore)
+ Lake Tahoe (gorgeous)
+ Napa Valley
+ San Francisco
+ Malibu for a reunion with my college roommates
I crossed 3 states off my list this year: Louisiana, Nevada, and New Jersey (over halfway there now!)
I asked a lot of "why?" and "how?" this year. I'm hoping 2014 has the answers.
