Goodbye 2013

Another year. I'm always amazed at how fast a year goes and how much happens during one. One of my personal reasons for keeping a blog is to track what has happened in my life. It's great fun to see what I was doing or what I was interested at a given time.

I want to sincerely thank my readers. You guys are the best and have been with me through thick and thin. You keep me going and I have met so many great friends through blogging. I frequently get such awesome emails from readers and love hearing about who they are as individuals.

Some key events this year:

- Joined the crew of Barkentine Gazela.
- I've started taking my photography hobby a bit more seriously. (Probably a joke as those of you who know me personally know I am pretty serious and that a camera is pretty much permanently attached to my hand.)
-My father was in the hospital, which I did not write about.
- I attended a few reenactments that I've never been to before such as Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. 

I found it a bit difficult to adjust to life without school for the first time in over 19 years. It's strange to not have a force making you learn something whether you want to or not.

Plans for 2014:

-I hope to completely redesign this blog to make things easier to find.
- I'm thinking of turning the Secret Life of Bloggers Blog Party into a 365 project. I had a lot of fun with it and it helped me take some time out of my day to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. Anyone who wants to take part this time around, just leave a comment.  
-Much much more!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year! I'd love to hear everyone's plans for this year and new year's resolutions.


  1. Happy New Year! I know what you mean... I'm trying to readjust not going to school or work in West Chester and it's only been 2 weeks! Hoping to hear from jobs soon so I can move. That's my plan for the new year.

    Secret Life of Bloggers as a 365 project sounds good! I'm thinking that'll be my 52 project and do that every week. We'll see on the job though and financial situation when I move. :)

    1. Happy New Year as well! Job hunting is quite the affair.

      I'm most likely only going to post one post for the blog party a week but I'm hoping to take 365 photos. :) Glad you'll be joining me!

  2. I love the Secret Life of Bloggers Blog Party; I intend to continue with a monthly post, as I have been for the past several months. :) I've been a fan of your blog for two years now, if not longer. I look forward to your future posts.

    I'm sorry to hear about your father; I hope that he has since recovered.

    Happy New Year to you, Stephanie, I look forward to our continued interactions! :)

    1. Happy New Years! I can't wait to see more great things from you.

  3. I've got a lot of plans for this year. I hope they all work out. It's been quite a year. Here's to the next one being great!


Tell me what you think!
