I know I’m 8 days late to the game, but I was in Colorado until Jan 4 and then it’s been crazy busy since then, so I had to wait until today to do my big list. As you may have noticed, I did not make a December “Big list”. That was intentional, since Adam and I took most of December off, and were only in Connecticut for 5 days total. Even with being on vacation for that long, my list was still big in December, by nature, so I didn’t want to add anything to it. I intended on reviewing November’s Big list this month, so here we go…

November ended up being a month of madness. While completed some things off my list, I completed so many other things that forced their ways onto my list.
