Books, Life, Lists

2013 in review

I know that 2013 is not yet at a close, but it is getting quite close.  As with every year I did not accomplish everything that I had planned, but life is more than things we plan on a list.  And while I did not get to see the Mutter Museum I did get to visit New Orleans.  I did not cook as much, but I earned a master’s degree in education and started a teaching job.
