Bucket List v.2013

I've been really bad about blogging, pretty much since I started, yet every once in awhile I dust it off and just read through a few posts and think, "I should really do this more often." The one post I do enjoy doing each year is my bucket list because it gives me a chance to look back over the past year and see what fun things I've managed to do, and what fun things I have to look forward to.

What a year 2012 was. We paid off the last bit of our debt and have been enjoying the debt free life. We went on a fun family camping trip for the Fourth of July and also visited Great Wolf Lodge a couple of times. I did a lot of running with some pretty big accomplishments like first place in my age group running a 5K on July 4! Right now I'm training for a half marathon and a 25K, so I definitely have my work cut out for me this year. Nathan and I sang in the church choir for Christmas Eve and that was such an awesome experience for us together. 

In just a few weeks we'll be headed over to Niagara Falls for my sister's wedding and that will cross another item off the list and be a fun family vacation too. A bit cold in February, but I know we'll have a blast!
