2013 Retrospect

This year I feel like I've grown so much, I think the ALT Summit really kicked it off in January. What an inspiring 3 days with such supportive bloggers. I was inspired and it really pushed me this year. I'm excited to go back next month and see where it takes me in 2014. While I am certainly looking forward below are a few of my favorite projects this past year.


Meeting Kei & Molly. Their story and work was really inspiring to pursue what you love.


Hosting our Fall Tasting. This idea was spurred on by a class I took with Bing and AltSummit. It was an online class and well it gave me this idea, which Felicia and Deborah were on board with.  I think we'll be doing this again soon.


Part of this was hosting a Coffee Tasting, this was super fun and great working with Stumptown Coffee, I can't wait till the next one.


I finally got to write about some of my Italian adventures from forever ago here.


I loved my weekly visits to the Santa Monica Farmers Market and was inspired to make new things just by what was in season.

I loved this trip this year to California Lake Country. I am so in for doing this again. Was a beautiful place to visit.

These Peanut Butter Chocolate Kiss Cookies got a lot of mileage on Pinterest this year.

I had a great time learning to make Candied Orange Peels, I can't wait to try this with a few other citrus fruits.

Seriously I am almost finished with the Cuba tale. This is one of my favorite posts, Cuba a Bittersweet Tale, on this trip, because it was all about my Dad. I still cry when I read it, so does he.

Those are a few of my favorite things from 2013. I'm looking forward to new adventures next year and hope to check off a few things from my goals list. Enjoy!

Mindless Monday

Blogging from the road on our way to New Mexico. Two weeks spending time with Family and working from Mom's office with the Corvette clock! Yes the engine roars on the hour.

Being on the road is a great way to just clear your mind. Enjoying the scenery. I use to like a sleep the whole way as a passenger, but now i want to stay awake and soak in all the landscape. Catching up on podcasts and maybe learn some Spanish from our language course. Arriba, arriba. Enjoy your week!
