I know I have said it before but this is my favorite time of year! December is a great month – all the things Christmas! Now the holidays are over and it is just about time to ring in the New Year – time to look back on 2013.
It certainly has been a year of ups and downs for me: in May I got the most amazing and cutest grandson in the world; in July I lost my Dad after a 6 month struggle; in September I traveled to Springfield, IL, to compete at the NADAC Championships and won the Double Digit division with Kant and got 3rd place in the 12” division with Echo; and in November I found out that Kant has cancer!
I have spent a lot of wonderful times with the greatest friends and family and I have spent a lot of time doing things I wish I did not have to do! I have cried a lot and I have laughed more! I created a list of 47 things to do before my 48th birthday and I have accomplished a ton like getting a tattoo, that I love, and doing 2 5k runs! I am almost 2 years in to my five year plan – I will retire from the Treasury in 3 years and 3 months and start a new chapter of my life. I am looking forward to all that 2014 can bring!
Happy New Year Friends and Family – may 2014 be the greatest year filled with love and happiness!
