In My 28th Year

Tomorrow is my 29th birthday. I took more than a few moments to look back on my 28th year since, well, it was pretty fantastic. Here are 28 things that went down in my 28th year!

1. The Avid Appetite celebrated its first birthday

2. Shaun and I became the proud leasers of a Prius

3. I spent an entire December day baking holiday cookies with my mom. It was wonderful.

4. I visited 2 new foreign lands, Madrid, Spain and Zurich, Switzerland. I dined on amazing cuisine and visited breathtaking sights!

5. I was {almost} at one with nature in Yellowstone National Park

6. I saw the most amazing animals, up close and personal

7. I flew first class for the very first time (and it was one of the best things ever)

21. I started a really fun and exciting project with my sisters. I cannot WAIT to tell you all about it. Soon, I promise.

24. Lindsey and I went in search of the perfect apple pie

25. and I made my grandmother's famous apple pie, complete with a homemade crust

26. I helped Lindsey make 350 truffles for her engagement party

27. I finally created my gallery wall. And I heart it. Every day.

28. I had a lot of fun, laughs and lots of quality time with friends and family. What else is there to ask for?

It’s been real 28, but I think I’m ready for 29. Here's hoping for another fantastically fun year!
