2013 in Review

2013 was quite a year. I returned to Florida after of a year of working in Honolulu. I completed three half marathons. I reconnected with friends throughout the world courtesy of my unbelievable job.  I tried my hand at some new activities. I even added some new cities to my travel map. Some may second guess my decision to move back to the East Coast, but some times the hardest decisions can truly lead to the happiest results. Collecting my thoughts took longer than I thought, but I hope to make this a new tradition, to honor the folks who help make my life so wonderful!
