So a lot of good, exciting and once in a lifetime stuff went down in 2013, which maybe explains why it went by so fast? I decided in October I was going to make a reverse life list, acknowledging all of the crazy and amazing stuff I’ve been blessed enough to do instead of focusing on all the stuff I thought I should be doing. These are kind of in order, and I’m probably missing some — but I’m pretty sure NYC with Addie was the best if I had to pick the best one.
Going to the fancy wedding of a dear friend with the world’s best flower girl.
Going to the Animation Research Library and seeing pencil sketches from ‘Plane Crazy’ and ‘Steamboat Willie.’
Hanging out with Minnie in Disneyland.
Whenever Addie got off the bus.
Having my family drawn in penguins by a Club Penguin artist.
Spending my birthday in Disneyland.
My mom meeting my friend Minnie for the first time ever.
Going to New York City with Addie.
Photographed the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
Kayaking in Florida
White Sandy beaches with this little creature.
Going to the Animation Research Library again and seeing original sketches from ‘The Little Mermaid’ then interviewing Jodi Benson.
Going to the world premier of Planes and running into the Dane Cook, not that I like him, but still, kind of cool.
Surprising my dear friend Rachel for her birthday and spending a perfect day on the lake with her and her family.
Horseback riding on the beach in South Carolina
Mumford in concert with my honey.
Seeing this in Michigan during ArtPrize.
Spending the night at West Point.
Drove across the George Washington Bridge and into New York City in my dream car. (Red Subaru Outback wagon.)
Having three of my very bests in the same place for an entire weekend.
Hanging out and getting a massage on Disney’s private island.
fall learn how to surf on a boat.

Let’s do this 2014.
