25 Favorites From The Past Year

Today is my birthday! I look at my birthday as a personal New Year’s Day, a time to look back on the past year and a time to look forward to the next. I liked the post I wrote last year on my birthday and I decided to continue that tradition this year as well. Here are 25 of my favorite memories and things from the past year.

1. When Dave surprised me on my birthday with a gift of a Disney Cruise – I highly doubt he will top that this year!

2. Our overnight getaway to Atchison, KS.

Scandal is an awesome show. And I also enjoyed Finding Mr. Banks. Made me want to watch Mary Poppins again. "Let's go fly a kite.."
