I’m cutting it down to the wire this year- I literally spent the final afternoon of 2014 putting this together. I wasn’t super excited about doing it, but I’m so glad I did it anyway. There’s just something cathartic about looking through visual reminders of the fun things that have happened the previous year.
This year isn’t the most anything- it wasn’t the worst, but it certainly hasn’t been the best. It somehow managed to bring about a lot of unexpected change and be an exercise in maintaining the status quo all at the same time. But that doesn’t mean that there weren’t plenty of joyous events that happened, so let’s go through those.
In January, I kicked off the year by introducing my updated brand and putting some habits into place that I plan on repeating in part this year. I also attended to Alt Summit later in the month (a longtime goal of mine.)
We had a tough winter this year, so February was about hunkering down and enduring a lot of snow. I finally combined my blog and website on one domain name, and Brian and I house sat for family friends for a week. I got really into green smoothies and we had a Valentine’s Day dinner party with my parents.
In March we visited family and, wait for it, had more snow. But then Spring came, so it was all good.
May was the tail end of a crazy spring for my client work, but I also ran two 5ks and my brother graduated from college.
We headed to San Francisco with my family in August (where my brother got engaged!) Brian and I celebrated 10 years together and savored the last bit of summer. We also saw The Lion King for my Dad’s birthday!
In September I went to my first Nats game, we celebrated my brother’s engagement, and we had our house painted.
December was actually fairly quiet this year all things considered. Lots of nights in and comfort food, but I think it was just what we needed.
