I sat and typed a long post on 2013 but I’m going to scratch that and condense it because even though I thought it was exciting, I don’t want you to get bored and start skimming. So here’s my 2013 recap in pictures and bullet points 🙂 basically TLDR format with pics.
In 2013 I:
♣ Visited 3 new countries: Dominica, Norway, France
♣ Took trips throughout the year: Orlando (wedding/January), San Francisco (birthday getaway/February), Dominica, Barbados, Norway (3.5 wks// 2 weddings and a conference in that order/ May-June), England and France (conference// Paris for fun 😉 / November/December), Barbados (surprised family for Christmas/ December)
♣ Had a few new experiences: first awful hangover 😦 (like pass out before the night’s end), took public transport alone in a different country, had traditional high tea in England
♣ I played host for 8 weeks straight in July and August for family and friends
♣ Got delayed on almost every flight I took using American Airlines. I’ve already sent a letter to them.
♣ We saw Rihanna, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and J Cole in Concert and Dave Chapelle’s comedy show
♣ I baked two firsts: coconut bread/sweet bread as we call it back home, and my first cake. Got an A for effort and flavor on the cake but need to tweak the recipe so it’s not so dry. The coconut bread was a hit apparently :).
WordPress sent me my annual blog report that you can view here. I want to thank you very much for visiting and I hope to do a better job on blogging this year as I spent so much time focusing on my other blog last year. I had tons of drafts that I never got around to publishing, but as I said I’ll try to get better at working on both.
♦ Now that my parents have Fitbits and passed me in the first week due to salsa and walking in the morning, I’m more inspired to workout, they’re over 50!!!
♦ I’m looking forward to visiting a new country, no plans yet but spontaneous trips are the best
Have a wonderful new year. I’ll leave you with a few quotes to help you get through with your direction for this new year in case you were a little lost or need a push.
