  1. Even when after you finished your world travel you still went so many places! So jealous. So are you still a nanny? And yea for pinteresting parties! I have one with a group of my friends once a month, it is so much fun. I have never seen a roller derby game in person.

    Great recap! Oh and don’t forget for part of the last recap we thought it would be fun to add 5 goals/hopes for the upcoming year. That way when we recap next year we can see if they came true.
