So...as I am figuring out what I hope for in 2014.
Here's my look back at last year. It's not as put together as I'd like, but it's been sitting long enough.
I can't complain too much about last year. I think I still have quite a bit of soul searching to do.
I did my best to be as happy as I could. With a few exceptions, I feel like I did that pretty well. Of course, this is me we're talking about so I always think I could have done better at it.
I didn't have very much drama, or at least none that really, really sticks out.
My cousin and I quit talking for a bit, but that's been over.
I did get to take one weekender earlier in the year and was able to see my best friend which is always much needed.
We lost my Great Aunt in August and that was devastating. I hadn't seen her in a while, and that's my fault but she has always held a special place in my heart. Growing up, she was our neighbor so for the first 10 years of my life, I saw her almost every day.
We also lost my mother in law's dog, Rufus. I'm still not ever that either. She has two new dogs now who are as cute as can be, but I miss Rufus. I miss his presence.
Oh Gah, and then there's the tornado that wailed through my neighborhood and then some. Freaked my ass out because I opened my door right at it was touching down. Me & bad storms are a no-go. Scary shit.
I took my first solo trip, or I should say I traveled solo for the first time! Still proud of myself for that one. It was about 5 hours away.
I was able to squeeze in a handful of concerts, always fun stuff.
I know I mentioned that we met Aaron Murray, we they finally posted the pictures. It'll be below. I'm still so happy to have met him. He's awesome. Truly. As a player and a person. He was just so damn nice.
So, yea,..there were some good, bad, happy and sad times. So, instead of dragging it out too much more, I'll just hit you with the highlights.
*Doug & I celebrated 10 years together (2 years married). I'm so happy about that.

As the year came to a close I was able to look back on all the up and even the downs and see how blessed I am to be able to do the things I do, have all that I have, and be able to love as much as I do and be loved as much as I am. And that's a great thing.♥
I could have put together a much better post, but I'm still not 100% in the swing of things as far as blogging, but I'll get there! :-) Thanks for bearing with me!
