It’s always around this time of year that you look back and assess the past year and look forward to what the New Year holds. As I look back on this past year it was truly amazing. One of the biggest events was turning 30, which ended up not being that big a deal after all. This year I traveled to Peru, Hawaii, and all up and down California. I exhibited my artwork in 10 shows this year, including the incredible show at San Francisco State University. I went back to school and started taking classes at SJSU for event planning. Anyone who knows me knows that planning parties and events is one of my passions. I should be finished with that program next May. I have been taking cake decorating classes. Those have been a lot of fun and I am learning a lot. It combines creativity and sugar two of my favorite things. This year I also bought a new car, Scion XA, rappelled 165ft into a moaning cavern and celebrated my 8 year wedding anniversary. To top it all off I got what I wanted for Christmas, a Kitchen Aid stand mixer in chrome. It has been a good year full of wonderful experiences and lots of learning. I plan on spending New Years with a few close friends, eating, drinking, and having fun.
Now for next year, my wheels are already turning. I get to start the year off with a trip to Lake Tahoe. I plan on taking some skiing or snowboarding lessons. I will be continuing my event planning classes at SJSU as well as more cake decorating and baking classes. I have big plans for the year. I don’t want to jinx anything so I am not going to be too specific. I like to have everything planned and in place before I do the big reveal.
