Well, for a start, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I'm going to make a resolution of keeping this blog a little more up to date for 2013, for nothing more than to have a journal of adventure and mayhem in my life. If you harass me about it, cough Liz cough, I will kick you in the shins.
So essentially I am in the exact same place I was this time last year. Not that it is a bad thing necessarily, but it's just peculiar to reflect back on the year and feel like not much has changed. It seems like this is the first time in a while I haven't had a significant event occur, and I'm not sure how to feel about it.
I'll follow up with more adventures from my summer, but for the most part, I traveled and wandered about the west coast for a few months, lived in my car and went where I wanted to go. It was a lonely and freeing adventure, and I loved being able to do whatever I wanted, from hiking Mt Adams, to exploring slot canyons in Southern Utah. It wasn't always rainbows and butterflies, but it was a great way to take a long vacation and check out for a while.
I'm back in Park City now, still working as a nanny for the family of goofballs. If I had to choose one defining factor of 2012 it would have to be all the time I've spent with the kids. I've been with this family for over a year now, and feel like they are my home away from home. The kids are all getting older, and with that comes more opportunities to take them climbing mountains, biking around town, and skiing the local hills. They feel like my little brother and sisters, and I certainly treat them as such. I feel very lucky to have a job that I enjoy and feel really comfortable being a part of the family.
There will be more to come in the following days and weeks, but it's a start!!
