Dear 2013, I just want to say … you were awesome.
In January, I made many monkees.
L. spent several weeks with me, and we had many sweet moments.
February brought my boy Jesse to my door.
Together we traveled to Australia to welcome Miss Cali Hashi to the family.
I was still there in March, spending time with more special people.
April took The Guy & I (+ dog) to Death Valley, for our first camping trip together.
May was all about tree research. We spoke to many nursery staff as we narrowed our list.
July brought sewing, hiking, gardening, and celebrations.
Summer fun continued in August. We bought a couch and threw a party. We went to outdoor concerts and kept buying plants.
Baseball. Lake Arrowhead. LACMA. Friends. September did not disappoint.
Little Corey James surprised us by coming early, so in October I flew back to Australia for some extended cuddle time.
In November the Christmas-gift-making began in earnest.
And December continued to blow me away with the beauty of the world around me.
So, yeah, 2013 … you done good. Thanks so much. I’m looking forward to hanging out with your buddy 2014.
