At my old blog, near the end of every year, I liked to do a “Year In Review” post that summarized some of the biggest news stories, pop culture phenomenons, personal reflections and thoughts, and other random oddities from the previous twelve months before I dove headfirst into a new year.
I thought I’d do a mini-version of that here, albeit a little more personal, at the end of every month to reflect on some of my own highlights from the previous few weeks. I decided to call it “In a Nutshell” instead.
So here’s January 2013:
January, and 2013, couldn’t have started off better. I was in NYC having the time of my life with my best friend- and I will admit I was, in the back of my mind, a little worried that the fun and good vibes wouldn’t last much longer than our weekend (because it’d be hard to top our New Years Eve festivities), but much to my surprise and delight, the month proceeded to stay on an incline of awesome. Despite the Arctic Tundra-like temperatures, I got to see and photograph some beautiful urban exploration locations, I had an incredible birthday that was full of fantastic surprises, I learned a couple of new recipes, and I got to catch a couple of really kick-ass last minute shows- including my favorites- The Dropkick Murphys!

And even though this blog has only been up and running for a month now, and I’m still getting a feel for it, the feedback I’ve been receiving, both on here and on other social networking sites- has been really positive and lovely. Thank you all so much for the sweet, encouraging words and support. This blog is still taking it’s first baby steps, but I’m having a lot of fun writing it so far, and I hope you’ll all continue to enjoy it.
I’m looking forward to February, and not just for obvious reasons:
See you all there!
