So long lucky 2013 …

Cheers and happy 2014!!

I remember last New Years Eve, hanging out with B and a few friends and family, and talking about 2013. I remember thinking that it was going to be a lucky year – my dad AND B are both born on the 13th and both of their birthdays were on Friday the 13th this year, so how could 2013 be a bad year?

Was it eventful or life-changing? Not quite. But was it great? Yes. Here are just a few memories from the year – in no order (seriously, there is really no order here):

Traveling to the West Coast with B, and seeing some old friends as well as the Pacific Ocean.

And something I never wrote about … but in December I was awarded one of PRNews’s 30-under-30 People to Watch

Melissa PR News Awards

And what I’m looking forward to in 2014 –

  • Another year in our NEW apartment!
  • My best friend getting married!
  • A few amazing vacations- including one to Costa Rica this spring!
  • Some more great runs. I ended 2013 with two more half marathons and more than 1,530 miles completed – and can’t wait to see what 2014 holds.

After rocking in the New Year at a 1950s-themed party, I think we’re off to a great start.

happy new year!

What are you look forward to this year? Happy New Year!
