2013 in Review

This year has probably been the hardest year of my life. And if you have been around here long enough I am sure you know why. But it is nice to look back at the happy moments and try to focus on those.

As of right now I also finished 25 things on my 101 Things in 1001 days list. I think this is pretty good so far and I still have quite a few things that are in progress that I am almost done with! So 2013 has been a year of changes and there are so many more changes that will come in 2014. I guess we are just at a point in life right now where we have no idea what to expect in the next few years. It is scary, but exciting at the same time!
