2013 In Review - Twelve Things Of Thankful
Our awesome Lizzi has sure outdone herself, taking the usual review to the next level. Thank you so much, Lizzi, I'm excited to revisit my own year and see what I have forgotten.
Tons of cooking, baking, and a somewhat sobering realization right at the beginning of the year. And another scar added to my collection :-)
I completed my re-cap of Lily's birth 5 years ago, had a very unfortunate bout of physical depression, but still managed to pull myself out for a nice Valentine's date with the hubby. I celebrated my last 20's birthday and created a list of 25 things I'd like to do before turning 30.
I found the FTSF-link-up and met Janine, something I'm incredibly greatful for. The hubby and I had a few great couch dates and enjoyed them properly! I also started to be more voiceful about being a family of Atheists. I have found that it is imporant to show that Atheists, too, are normal people, who want the best for their families and leave a better world for their children. And not to forget: I received my first Liebster Award :-)
We celebrated Missy Violet's birthday with a day trip to Munich to visit Sea Life. Hubby and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary and I gushed about the special bond between a dad and his daughter. We had our first ice cream of the year!
Month of the Blog Every Day in May challenge. It definitely helped me getting into a blogging routine which I have maintained ever since. I shared some songs, some pictures, and some of my greatest challenges. Plus a broken toe, followed by an ankle injury.
Summer arrived! My posts on whacky BMI-charts was featured on another blog, and we FINALLY received the building permit for our house!
I found the TToT link-up and "met" the wonderful Lizzi! I bought new running shoes, and we got to attend a wonderful wedding with the most beautiful flower girls ever!
Our family had a great vacation, and a number of wonderful guest bloggers filling in for me. I introduced the Doctor Who Wordless Wednesdays and finally made progress in my running routine.
Big races, nazis in suits, and a nasty, nasty bronchitis. Healthwise, this was not necessarily my year.
Hubby did well in his surgery; I recovered from the bronchitis and had a rocky start at work. I enjoyed two weeks of complimentary newspaper delivered to my door. Lily managed to amaze me once again with her kindness and clarity. We celebrated hubby's birthday and Halloween.
Meet Survivor Girl! There was a serious rant about the lack of respect we as Atheists were receiving from Lily's teacher, and my mom saved the day for us. Holiday baking was kicked off, and then there was a little history of my Thanksgiving.
Lily got a visit from the tooth fairy. I had my first tiny little link-up and contacted a local humanist advocate group to finally stop the religious harrassment our family was facing in kindergarten. After a break for the holidays I wrapped up the year with Joy's awesome link-up.
Thank you so much again for this link-up, Lizzi!! May 2014 everything you wish and may not hope for any more!
