This New Year's Eve marks 6 years of being smoke free for D and I. We've been smoke free for so long now it seems like another life. It's been another great year, one of the best in awhile.. We moved, AGAIN, but this time into the home I'm confident we'll be in until retirement. The last half of the year has been great for me personally. I've grown so much and in ways I never thought possible- never say never . I'm looking forward to growing new and old friendships, our trip to Maui, and continuing to take care of myself mentally and physically in the upcoming year. Thanks to all my friends and family for the wonderful times in 2012. Bring on 2013!!!
I'm looking forward to pretty much the same things in 2014 (minus the trip to Maui damn it). Personal Growth, Growing Friendships and Learning To Take Care Of Myself are at the forefront of my mind and have been for some time now. This year has been full of ups and downs, good times and bad, and lots of life's little lessons. I've had a good run, but I'm ready for a new beginning. Before I say goodbye to 2013 though I wanted to share a few of my favorite memories from the year.
April marked 8 fabulous years of marriage for D and I , and we celebrated big time by spending 10 nights at the Four Seasons in Maui. Don't be too envious folks, we hadn't taken a "real" vacation since our honeymoon.
In June we spent one of the best days ever having lunch at our favorite summer spot and then attending the La Jolla Festival of the Arts. When we woke up, we had not plans. We just went wherever the wind took us and it was a great day.
In July we randomly booked a flight two hours before departure and went to Las Vegas for the trip of a lifetime. We've never been so lucky and it was just what we needed at the time. Two nights at the Wynn, dinner at our favorite restaurant, Sinatra, a cabana by the pool and spa treatments to boot. I still think about our little getaway on a regular basis.
In September my little brother and I took our first trip together as adults, it will forever be one of my favorite memories of he and I.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year and nothing but health and happiness in 2014.
