2015 Highlights

December 21, 2015 Baltimore, MD, USA

This was the year I often chose life over blogging. So many things happened, but I didn't feel each one warranted its own blog post. The predominant highlight was theatre, but plenty of other things happened, many worth celebrating, some more somber. I certainly can't complain.


  • I got my first eshakti dress! I'd seen bloggers all over reviewing these and was waiting for the day I was invited to join the club. I'm a convert and I now own five of their dresses (and may or may not have more on the way)
  • I never have much to say about January because it's the middle of winter and I try my best to hibernate it away.


  • Sean and I celebrated our tenth dating anniversary. How time flies!
  • I made my TV debut on the local news.


  • Broadway! I won tickets to now-closed It Shoulda Been You. I took my mom and we both met our favorites: Sierra Boggess and Tyne Daly.
  • I began my attempts at gardening.


  • Things went awry in Baltimore, but I wasn't fooled by the news. I'm still happy to live here.
  • Theatre! My sister and I caught Wicked on tour here in Charm City. Neither of us had seen it before.


  • Let the celebrations begin! So many friends and family graduated college this year,


  • More celebrations! Our fifth wedding anniversary and Sean's sister's high school graduation were on the same day.


  • Sean's birthday! We skipped out weekend getaway this year in favor of celebrating with friends and family.
  • We did travel on another weekend for Sean's annual family reunion and to belatedly celebrate his brother turning 21!



  • Pure chaos! Sean and I both had busy falls between coaching and lots to be done at work. I have no recollection of this month aside from a less-than-fun Labor Day weekend. Better luck next year,


  • Back to Broadway! I was able to score a $35 orchestra ticket to The King and I. Amazing! I also learned traveling solo ain't so bad.
  • I participated in my first 5K...I walked!
  • I was rear-ended in a hit and run...and am just now getting treatment and car repairs due to lengthy insurance confusion.


  • More theatre! I caught the Book of Mormon on tour (hilarious!) and reunited with my high school bestie to catch a local production of Legally Blonde the Musical.
  • Spent three evenings doing one of my favorite volunteer activities - the Operation Christmas Child processing center!
  • On a somber note, Sean's aunt who we stay with each year for the family reunion passed away suddenly just before Thanksgiving. We had another family reunion, just not the kind anyone had hoped for.


  • Theatre, Theatre, Theatre! Celebrated my brother's birthday with Marvel Universe Live, and my mother's with the national tour of The Sound of Music. I'll let you guess which I liked best.
  • Said bestie and I from last month are getting ready to run up to NYC to see Broadway's On Your Feet.
  • ....and then it's Christmas!
What were your highlights this year?

  1. Sounds like you had a great year! I'm looking forward to seeing what 2016 brings for you! :)

  2. I'm sorry about Sean's aunt and your accident. Neither are any fun. But I am insanely jealous you got to see Sound of Music. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!
