2013 – A year in review

I have been battling to write my year in review post – there is lots to say but I am in full holiday mode and I have discovered the series Suits so I am battling to focus.

This one will have to do for now – hopefully between now and tomorrow I can come up with something a little more meaningful.


1. What did you do in 2013 that you’d never done before?

Reviewed a car (actually a few). Never thought I would do that.

2. Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year? 

I can’t really remember if I had resolutions but I did have a word and I think I did stick to it for the most part although I would have liked more creating.

3. How will you be spending New Year’s Eve?

With my family at the dam – I am not expecting to make it to midnight though but I have my some of my favorite people around me and that’s all I need.

4. Did anyone close to you die? 


5. What countries did you visit?IMG_6950

Doing as much gym as I did – definitely was the year I got the fittest I have been.

Probably not taking more advantage of opportunities that came my way.

25. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2013:

  • Boundaries are VITAL for successful relationships with every single person in your life.
  • Communication is just as vital – when it’s hard then it is even more vital.
  • Sugar is EVIL – pure evil!

    Am still trying to get it together to just sit and think about what went down in 2013. I can’t. Or maybe I just don’t want to. Am just not lus. Want it to go already but also want it to stay put because I’m nervous about 2014. That said, you had a FANTASTIC, albeit a very busy year. Seriously. Wedding. Zanzibar. Baby on the way. Two CT trips. New Car. You did good. Am proud of you.
    Btw…I LOVE Suits. Team Harvey ALL THE WAY!
