ADIOS, 2013 :: Highlights

Wednesday, January 1, 2014

Are you ready?
I am ready.
So, so very ready.
There was a lot of good in 2013,  a lot of it, don't get me wrong...  but it's time to get my s%#@ together in 2014.
This I know.
And I am ready.

When I looked back through the year I see that there were accomplishments, adventures, lots of good stuff... lots of it.

  1. It looks like you had a great year. I turned forty this year, too. Getting my act together is on my priority list, as well. If only because, well, you know...FORTY. Don't you feel as if you should still be 24? I do.

  2. I am so so so so happy I stopped by. I'm on vacation until the 13 and I can't wait to read more. Happy New Year, Amy! Loved all of these photos and catching up quickly.

  3. Happy New Year my friend. I wish you a year of sunlight, love, laughter, fine finds, great coffee and peace! Love, Kim
