Go HERE to participate!!!
What did you do in 2014 that you’d never done before?
This is SO hard! I can’t think of anything I have never done before off the top of my head. I ate new foods, tried new little things, but nothing too extravagant.
Did you keep your new years’ resolutions? Will you make more in 2015?
I vowed to lose 25-30 pounds. And no, I probably actually gained MORE weight this year…of course it’s right after the holidays. I do want to eat better & not make a goal to lose weight, just to be healthier.
Did anyone close to you give birth?
Yes, someone in Terence’s family is always pregnant or having a baby. I love all my little nieces and nephews.
Did anyone close to you die?
People I knew died. Not any immediate family & for that I am HAPPY.
What countries did you visit?
Stayed in the US this year…next year I’m ready to get out of dodge!

More family time.

Growing my photography business.
What was your biggest failure?
