Here is a monthly snapshot of 2014. While writing this I realized some months there was typical date nights, new recipes and fitness adventures. Other months were jammed packed with trips, birthdays and vacations (Hello June!!).
January: Experienced my first snow while living in Cary. It was a fun experience and an added plus not having to worry about salting our sidewalks. One of the perks of apartment living.
February: Spent a week in Washington, DC for the National Association of School Psychologist Annual Conference. Looking back, I realized I did not blog much about it. We had a great time visiting some national monuments and exploring snowy DC.
March: Celebrated Easter with my family and created a new recipe featuring my favorite holiday candy. I also ran my favorite race to date- Tobacco Trail Half Marathon.
April: I ran my first marathon and spent spring break on a mother/daughter cruise to the Caribbean.
May: I completed a fitness challenge to get ready for summer with NHerShoes. It was a great way to expidite my fitness goals.
June: Joe and I celebrated out two year anniversary with a Mediterranean Cruise. It was a bumpy start getting to the cruise ship but we ended up being okay and have a great story. We visited Athens, Ephesus, Santorini, Mkynos, Rhodes and Naples. Following our cruise we spent three days in Rome. It was a trip of a lifetime!
July: Spent 4th of July week at Topsail Beach with my family. We braved the one and only hurricane of the season Arthur while we were there.
August: Started a new job closer to home complete with my own office. I am beyond thankful for my new school and love the teachers and students I work with.
September: Spent our weekends at the beach with my family. A trip to the amazing Britt's doughnuts also occurred.
October: Visited a haunted corn maze, the NC state fair and ran a half marathon all in one weekend!! We also spent a weekend in the mountains celebrating Joe's 30th birthday.
November: Pulled a ligament and was put on rest from running. Fell in love with Pure Barre while I healed.
December: Celebrated the Christmas season with friends and family!
