(oh look. A big, stupid deer in our yard. Details on my feelings about deer and their horrible antlers under The Bad)
Last year, instead of doing a recipe round-up I wrote a more personal list of the the good and bad things that happened over the year, as well as some goals I had for the coming months. Seeing as it is somehow, already ANOTHER new year and I'm a sucker for traditions I thought that I would do it again. So here it is.. The Good and The Bad of 2013 and The Goals for 2014.
2013 was a year with lots of ups and downs. My initial list of good things actually got too lengthy and I forced myself to scale it back. So in no particular order, here are the brightest highlights of 2013:
1. My little sister got engaged in January and during the summer my mom and I flew to New York City where she lives to help with her some of the wedding planning.
2. I attended Food Bloggers of Canada's first conference in Toronto where I met lots of bloggers and spoke on a panel about recipe development.
3. My friends asked me to be the godparent for their daughter Annabelle and so I flew to Victoria BC to visit them, baby Annabelle, and see the beautiful new ballet school that they run.
