Last year was a busy one. Some challenges and some fun.
My child’s father, Nicholas, died a year ago today after a battle with cancer. In February we traveled to Milwaukee to bury him. We stayed a couple of extra days and saw the Quadracci Pavilion and the Alumni House at the University of Wisconsin.
I posted 43 recipes and published my cookbook 52 Food Fridays on Amazon. Baked Asparagus was my most popular recipe.
I started writing for the Baltimore Post Examiner. Check it out – there is a good post on Boarding Schools.
In March I spent four days in Miami reunited with old friends.
In April it was back to Wisconsin for my parent’s 70th Wedding Anniversary. While we were there we enjoyed a quick tour of the Capital building.
I wrote a posts on TCK Patriotism, HOME and Facebook and the TCK.
In July we went to Halifax, Nova Scotia. A beautiful amazing place – Public Gardens, Halifax Part Two. This piece was so good somebody stole it and put it on their Facebook page claiming to have written it themselves. After asking him politely to take it down, I had to write to Facebook to get it off.
My local trips included the National Gallery, Great Falls National Park, the Botanical Gardens and Shenandoah Skyline Drive.
I had a promotion on Amazon that gave away my memoir, Expat Alien. I was surprised when 712 people in the US and 103 people in the UK downloaded it. I hope you all enjoyed it! Write a review on Amazon!! Help me out!
In November it was a quick trip to New York City.
December took us to Chicago and back to Madison to celebrate some Nomad Holiday Traditions.
What will the New Year bring? My son graduates high school and goes off to college. I’m going to Europe in June. Anything can happen, and probably will. Let’s hope we all have a great year!
Sorry to hear about the death of your ex-husband, Kathy. But it’s good to see you experienced many wonderful adventures and positive events in 2013, too. Hope to see you at FIGT 2014, yes?
Thanks, Linda! Not sure about FIGT yet… still thinking about it… Hope you are enjoying NC!
Hey Kathy, thanks for the highlights and I look forward to seeing you in June!
