The first week of the year is always a mix of reflecting on the past year and what is to come. 2013 was a big year for us. Bennett graduated medical school, he got matched, we moved, bought our first house, and discovered what the life of a resident is actually like. I started a new job, dug into my dissertation, and have traveled around the country to places like Madison, Seattle, L.A., Kansas City, Chicago and back and forth across Iowa to Omaha a crazy number of times. We went to Paris. I got a tattoo, Bennett got a new car. We said good-bye to friends, made new ones, and are figuring out our new life.
For me, 2013 was about change, adjustment, and figuring out what I want. A lot of things have fallen into place this past year and I am ready to make things happen in 2014. I think it may just be my year : )
