The Best of Pink Moon in 2016

The Best of Pink Moon in 2016

It’s been a great year and I’m thankful to have you as part of my journey. Let’s take a quick look back.

Here are the highlights of my 2016:

  • Brought my blog back: I’m so proud to be writing again and thankful for the connections it’s provided me. I published 34 posts and had thousands of readers.
  • #DK200: I conquered the challenge that is Dirty Kanza 200. As part of that I had to develop a champion mindset, listen to my body, and push myself beyond my physical and mental limits. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my family and will forever cherish being a finisher.
  • Celebrated with Nick: He completed a 50k, had a great year at work and was an amazing and supportive partner.
  • Traveled to Italy: Nick and I traveled to Italy for 2 weeks and it was the experience of a lifetime, opening me up to new ways of living and reminding me to focus on what’s really important.
  • Cherished what I love: I spent time with my family and best friends, celebrated my niece’s 1st birthday and my nephew’s 3rd, read more books than I can count, spent countless hours biking, hiking and enjoying the outdoors, and filled 2 journals with my life story. We also moved my grandparents, Carl and Olga (and their 2 kitties), from AZ to KC which means I get to see them exponentially more often.
  • Honored lost loved ones: We celebrated the life of my charming and fun Uncle Randy who lost his battle with cancer. Nick’s sweet and sassy Grandma Grace passed away as did his Grandpa Ed, a real man who created a beautiful family and will leave a lasting legacy.
  • Became a Big Couple: In October, Nick and I were matched with Damarion, a fun, smart and curious 8-year old. He is a joy to have in our lives.
  • Supported causes I care about: I became the Chair of the Legal Aid of Western Missouri’s Young Professional Board and was also elected to their Board of Trustees. Nick and I also served on the Midwest Innocence Project’s NextGen Advisory Board.
