Can you believe this day is here already??? 2013 just flew by!
Whether you arrived here from Lee's Blog as part of the One Little Word Blog Hop, or you are here because you love me and drop by regularly... Welcome! I love visitors! The One Little Word Blog Hop is a monthly hop run by Lee for members of Ali Edwards' One Little Word class over at Big Picture Classes. The hop goes live on Wednesday at 6:00 a.m. You can always check back later if someone's post isn't live yet.
Our November assignment was to collect photos that represent our word. As of December 1st, I hadn't gathered the photos of my most recent dares. So here is November's assignment, albeit a bit late:
My DARING Highlights of 2013:

memorabilia, went to the Cherry Blossom festival in Philadelphia
May - completed LOAD513 challenge;
June/July - completed the Summer of Color Challenge; traded in my trusty old Blackberry
for an iPhone; enjoyed a week at the Jersey shore with family
August - engaged in street photography for One Little Word class and Summer 2013

Throughout the year - finished some old UFO's including Perpetual Happiness album,

potatoes, and several new recipes. Attended a series of different yoga classes via a
Living Social deal. Met up with three different blog friends. Established fairly consistent
morning pages and meditation habits.
And my tracker for December:
In all, 2013 was a very good year for me and I bid it farewell with fondness. But I'm also very excited about 2014 and all the potential it holds! For 2014 I have chosen the word "KIND" and I'll be back with more about my meaning and hopes for this word in a future blog post.
If you are continuing on in the hop, your next stop is Margareta's Blog.
