Reflections on 2013

I can’t believe today is the last day of the year!

This has been a packed year. I saw on tumblr people were posting reflections on the past year. I decided to join in and post it on my blog.

  1. What did you do in 2013 that you’d never done before?
    I went to New York, that was amazing although a very short trip. I was the assistant editor for Imaginary Gardens at Pellissippi and I planned an event as well.

    On the Empire State Building

    Right before Imaginary Gardens Gala
