It was my birthday on Tuesday. Here I am, another year older, and about to begin my life as a 38 year old woman.
I travelled to Victoria to see my parents for both Thanksgiving and Christmas last year as well as early September 2015. This year I won't see my parents until my brother's wedding in May. It will be odd, but hopefully we can ease the distance through phone calls and Facetime.
Yes, TJ is finally engaged to his girlfriend and they are getting married in Niagara Falls over the May Long Weekend 2016. We took family photos in February that they have used for engagement photos. I also helped my future sister-in-law find her wedding dress. It is so pretty!
2015 was the year that I travelled more and that was really fun. I went to Chicago for my Fraternity Convention in June. Then I went to Seattle for the Labour Day long weekend in September. Getting my passport updated (and back into my maiden name) was beneficial.
What I am really proud of this year is that I joined the Chapter Housing Corporation for my Fraternity and became super involved as a Pi Beta Phi alumna. I loved Convention. I also got to go to a wine tasting and the Alumnae Tea. I spent many hours at the chapter house building new dressers and making it a better place for the collegiates.
I lost almost 17 pounds. Looking back over my posts, I am a broken record, I always wish I could have done more work to lose more weight. I have to stop talking about it and just do it. The only thing in my way is me. I did get more exercise this year but it is truly just a case of eating less and moving more.
37 was a pretty good year, hopefully 38 will be even better !!
