2013 – A Year In Pictures

Last year in the infancy stage of this blog, I did a photo collage of the highlights of 2012 and I thought I’d do it again this year.  Not only is it fun to have the chance to reminisce about the events of the past year, it’s great to be able to choose visual reminders of meaningful experiences that may not always be top-of-mind.   So after searching the archives of a year’s worth of photos, I present:

    This is so great! I did a “visual” holiday hit list on my site today too. I loved going through all the pictures and re-living so many great moments. I think my fav picture here is just the one of your husband and son, sitting and playing guitar. It’s just so sweet and captures everyday life. Here’s to 2014 my friend!

      I thought I responded to you via WP mobile but I don’t think it went through….again. I love that picture of my husband and little guy. It actually recently replaced my long time NYC phone wallpaper. Good eye there you! It’s been fun going through the year but hard to pick only a few memories! Here’s to a great 2014!

    I loved looking at your year in photos! I will have to read up on your experience with WundaBar Pilates. I used to do a lot with Pilates and it was amazing. Here’s to a great 2014 my friend!

      For certain! 2014 is going to be quite a year for us entrepreneurs, isn’t it my friend? I look forward to virtually supporting each other along the way. Happy New Year my friend!
