Happened in 2012
Moved away from my beloved Raleigh, an hour and half away from friends, church, favorite haunts, but regularly drove back in my new car.
Learned we might be moving to Nowhereville, SC. Was bummed. I like my cities!
Started running more competitively, signing up for many more races.
Learned that instead of SC, we’d be moving to Hawaii. Was dubious.
Re-homed my dearest friend, Julius the cat.
Loved living in the country. Even saw a foal born in the back yard.
Set a goal and reached it during a 10K.
Decided to run a half-marathon.
Took my work hours down to part time to prep for the big move.
Said farewell to the most awesome state: North Carolina
Moved to Hawaii. Like whoa.
Found our new home.
Ran my half-marathon on Maui and smoked my original goal time.
Started cooking my way through the 150th Issue of Saveur Magazine.
Immediately decided to run a marathon.
Learned my sis-in-law was battling cancer.
Linked up those last two items to raise funds to support my sis-in-law.
Roasted a goose for Thanksgiving.
Celebrated our first wedding anniversary in true military style: separated by thousands of miles and a TDY.
Ran in the 2012 Honolulu Marathon.
Knocked 6 items off my bucket list..
What a year. Can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store for us!
