thirteen fill-in-the-blanks for 2013
Since it is New Year's Eve and all, this is always a good time to reflect on the past year. I also think this is a great opportunity to begin our fill-in-the-blanks.
We really love the idea of creating a community through our little blog, and I thought this would be a fun, lighthearted way to get to know our readers a bit better. So, please copy the following into the "comments" section and fill in the blanks. I look forward to reading all your responses!

I completed one to get us started:
a place you went: didn't do a lot of traveling this year, but did go camping up at Lake Merwin
the best thing you ate: Lane made this tomato curry soup that I am obsessed with, but these rosemary cookies are a close second!
a book you read: My Life in France by Julia Child (love her!)
something you celebrated: six years of marriage to my favorite man
the outfit that was your uniform: jeans + plaid shirts... I'm totally in a rut! (resolution?)
a movie you saw (in the theater): the second Hobbit movie (also the only movie I saw in a theater this year)
most memorable gift you were given: My dad framed a picture he took in Venice and gave it to us for Christmas. He was a professional photographer for most of his life, so it is really beautiful and special.
a new restaurant you went to: Les Caves in Corvallis. It is excellent. We would be in there weekly if we lived there!
favorite purchase you made: I'm not a big spender, but I did just buy an amazing pair of brown leather boots at a thrift shop for super cheap
a performance you went to (or participated in): saw Leagues in concert with some good friends
a home decor project you completed: the basement is finally painted!
the album you couldn't stop listening to: Mutual Friends by BOY
a new experience: Eleanor came into our lives at the tail end of last year, so being a mommy of two has been a wonderful all-new adventure!
Thank you for reading and Happy New Year's Eve!
