2013 did not exactly start well for me (health issues, job troubles), but it got better from there. Great, even! All in all, it was a really good year. Resolutions for 2014, you ask? Those mostly concern my attitude. I want to worry less and not sweat the small things. Also, take better care of myself. Last but not least, take time to stand back and enjoy what I have - which is a lot.
Here´s a look back with some favorite pictures and posts:
In January, I painted our front door. Which is now about to get repainted, because the paint keeps chipping off (I was lazy and didn´t use primer. Here´s some good advice from me to you: Always use primer.) I might use a lighter color while I am at it.
In February, we finally finished our kitchen remodel. OK fine, I take it back, not everything was bad in the first few months of 2013. I LOVE this kitchen.
In March, it wouldn´t stop snowing, and I was growing a liiiittle impatient. So that was bad, but also I started a new job back then, and that was very, very good.
In April, we brought Ludwig home. This is probably the best thing that happened to us in 2013. We adore this dog to a point that probably isn´t healthy.
In June, I first showed you the 2013 edition of the vegetable garden. Right after I took the pictures, the garden was flooded, so that was that.
This is my favorite picture of the walled garden, taken in July. When going through the archives, I realized I have babbled maybe a tad too much about the garden last year. I am sorry. It´s just so exciting to see things mature. I promise I´ll scale the garden coverage down this year.
We got a new gate in August. I do realize that this was probably way more exciting for us than for you.
In September, we went to the sea for a weekend. So good, and much needed.
In October, I painted the cabinet in the living room a bright blue, which (almost) everybody loved - except me. It has since then been repainted twice, the last time two days ago. Actually, there is another resolution for 2014: Stop repainting that damn cabinet.
In November, I blogged about my newly painted kitchen floor. This definitely wins the "most tedious project in 2013" award. But also the "most awesome outcome" badge, to make up for it.
Another favorite picture that I took in December. And with that, the circle closes.
Here´s to a great 2014!
