Tops of 2013

As the year winds down I am grateful for many experiences.  I did not blog about all of them (see my previous post for more about that) but here is a list.  It is a good list that makes my heart happy.

My Top 10 Highs for 2013 (in no particular order)

  6. Doing a Turkey Trot 5K with my 3 year-old who ran all but 1/3 of a milebodhi trot
  7. Having my sugar cane allergy reversed. Yes, reversed!
  8. Leaving it all on the proverbial field when I got to spend time with friends and family locally, in California, Oregon, and Utah thus having no regrets.
  9. Realizing how much my female friendships mean to me.  I had to rely on my girls a lot this year.  As someone who does not have many female friends it felt great to be that vulnerable and hopefully reciprocate.
  10. Cover modeling for Breastfeeding Month (August) with Earth Mama Angel Baby  *my boob + my babebfmama
