Lists at this time of year are ubiquitous - I've just recently seen the top funniest viral videos, top news stories, top Canadian weather stories, and on and on. So I thought I'd make my list of events from 2012. Unfortunately it's impossible to rank them.
Top daily life changing event - Retirement June 30, 2012 - not exactly life changing but definitely changes my daily routine. YES to sleeping in!
Top festive occasion - Scott and Sam's 2nd wedding - March 17, 2012. Although the first one was lots of fun too.
Top amazing adventure - Kruger Park - January 2012. Fulfilling a life long dream of going on safari.
Top 'unreal' experience - Sabie, January 5, 2012. Meeting Martina Makua, my letter writing partner from the Grannies a Gogo group.
Top personal realization - Biking, summer. I remembered how much I enjoy biking. I'll continue to do more next year.
Top educational activity - France Oct/Nov 2012. Learning about a culture that seems similar but is very different. (Whoops, that's #6)
Now that I think of it the whole year was great. I can only hope that 2013 brings as many interesting, wonderful, amazing and incredible experiences my way. And yours too. Enjoy every day.
