Saying Goodbye to 2013

Saying Goodbye to 2013

DESTINATIONS, EUROPE, UNITED STATES

As we celebrate the end of another year, we look back on the places we visited and things we did in 2013.

 

 

 
This year we traveled to:

  • Los Angeles, CA
  • Washington, DC
  • New York City
  • Italy
  • Greece
  • Croatia
  • Turkey
  • France
  • New Jersey
  • Puerto Rico

In February my daughter and I went to LA to visit the set of “The Office“.   That was one of the highlights of the year for us.   I had won two VIP tickets at a silent auction.  She was over the moon when I told her I had won. It was her favorite show that she followed for years. We had no idea what to expect when we arrived at the set.  We got to spend the entire day on the set with the actors and interact with them while they were shooting one of their final episodes.   It was an experience of a life time that we will never forget.

In the summer we took the whole family on a Mediterranean Cruise which left from Venice, Italy.  We visited five countries.

We are looking forward to see where 2014 takes us.   A few places that are on my bucket list this year are Australia, New Zealand, and Bora Bora.

My New Years Eve resolution this year:

  •  Loss 20 pounds hopefully.
  •  Start a new fitness regiment and focus more on myself.
  •  Continue to take classes in the university towards my graphic design degree.
  •  Spend more quality time with the family.
  •  Take some cooking classes, I hate to cook.
