I'm rather happy to leave this year behind. No, it hasn't been a bad one, I'm just ready for the new one. I'm not one to make New Year's resolutions but I don't mind looking back and seeing what was accomplished. I fell in love with facebook this year. I love instant access to so many friends! I love catching up with people I hadn't talked to since high school. And I love that any time I have a question, from where should I eat in a town I'm visiting to why my dumplings did not dump - I have an answer within minutes.
I spent the first half of the year dieting and the rest of the year keeping it off. I lost 60 lbs and have been successful at maintaining. Now it's time to finish off those last 25 lbs. I feel better with those stupid 60 lbs gone, I can happily wear a size 6 jeans and am still always shocked at how comfy a medium shirt is.
I got to meet up with more bloggers. I saw Kaytabug in Missouri (again), Leanne in Iowa, and Jientje in Illinois. I need to meet more Wisconsin bloggers, lol. But we're hoping to make it to Florida in February and with any luck I'll meet more bloggers that trip.
I started the Macro Monday meme - thanks to you all for playing along! I love seeing what you all share each week!
I got my first (and only) tattoo, celebrating being a cancer survivor, one butterfly for each year of survival ~ I look forward to adding more butterflies.
I went to Maine, and saw Stephen King's house! I've been reading him since junior high school - my English teacher always took his books away, lol.
I met my in-laws for the first time. It was hard for us to communicate since I can't speak Spanish and they don't speak much English, but we had a good time. They're back in Honduras now so I'm not sure when I'll have the chance to see them again.
I rode the entire 30+ mile green circle trail, more than once! And learned the benefits of wearing ugly padded biking shorts.
Our photography business grew and continues to grow! So, I photographed many beautiful brides and ate a ton of wedding cake ~ it's amazing I lost any weight!
And I got to play with so many babies! And teens and couples. . . I took more photos for business than pleasure this year but I guess that's ok. I am hoping to find more time this coming year for my nature photo safaris. I do have fun shooting peoples
Yeah, I think it's safe to say it was a great year! Although, an exhausting one.
