Another year wiser

This past year has been a whirlwind. I took a minute today to sit down and think of everything that has changed for me in my 33rd year of life:
~I became a Registered Nurse
~I lost my beloved dog Jasco whom I had for 13 wonderful years
~I moved out of a 1700sq ft. house that I lived in for 9 years in Huntington Beach
~I moved into a 1000 sq ft. house in Sacramento down the street from my two beautiful nieces
~I job hunted like nobodies business!
~I faced a lot of rejection in my job hunting
~I got the job of my dreams (it just didn't look like what I thought I wanted)
~I moved into a 500 sq ft. apartment in Huntington Beach
~I made great new friends
~I caught up with great old friends
~I went to Napa for winetasting several times
~I rocked my niece to sleep at night
~I started this blog
~I sold most of the furniture that I had collected over the past 10 years.
~I realized that selling my furniture was a good thing because my style has changed and now I have a clean slate.
~I developed a new passion for cupcake decorating
~I am sure I am missing some major milestones with this list, but it's what came to me when I sat down at the computer. 

So, now I am off to work at the hospital and ring in my 34th year but I thought I'd leave you with a bit of my birthday wish list!
