My 6 YEAR Blogiversary!


Has it really been 6 years?  I had planned to do a retrospective but somehow I never carved out the time to make that happen.  Truth be told, I'm happy to leave 2013 behind. So, instead of looking back, here's what I'm planning for 2014:

- Finish some aspects of my One Room Challenge library/dining room.  Linda's challenge was just the kick-in-the pants I needed and it's time to keep the momentum going.

- Complete the basement reno.  (Yes, that project lingers on...)  However, there's been lots of progress and it's time to start posting about it. The tile guy will be coming back from Italy in February so we'll finally have our 3rd bathroom back, yeah!

- Redecorate my daughter's former bedroom into a study/guest room.

- Post about my family room - I've never really shown it on this blog and it's overdue.

- Tackle the landscaping in our side yard.

- Sew all those pillows so I don't have to keep staring at those bolts of fabric!


We've also got some fun things coming up in 2014:

- a trip to Boston in April.  My 10th grade daughter wants to get a jump start on the college search :)

- St. John USVI for spring break. One of my favorite places in the world.

- a trip we're in the midst of planning to the Greek Islands  (let me know if you've got advice for us)
and

I'll be turning 50!!!  I'm feeling really good about that.  A half-century - sounds so distinguished, doesn't it?

Finally, thanks to everyone who keeps showing up to read this blog.  I really, really appreciate it.  So here's to more fun in 2014.  Wishing you all the best and Happy New Year!

A sixth anniversary is a BIG deal in blog years ... so many people start and fizzle within a year or two. I always enjoy our 'visits', and I love that you share so many things that we may not have another opportunity to see or experience.

50 is fabulous ... in case you were wondering!!

Hi Michele, we are living parallel lives. My 10th grade daughter and I will be going to Boston to look at Colleges, too. I am also turning 50 this year. Finally, I am thrilled that 2013 is behind me, too. Not a personal best year. Good luck with your 2014!!

Haha, and Happy Blogiversary!!
