Favorite Moments of 2013

I love reminiscing on good times, and 2013 was full of them.  Let's recap, shall we?

Listening to "Anything Could Happen" at the Red River Grill w/Matthew, Tickle, Dan, and Kathryn and having lots of Lemon Drop Martinis.

It would have to be a tie between New Orleans (Carousel Bar!) w/my cousin, Anjali, and Jasmyn during Mardi Gras season and New York City with Anjali and Jasmyn.  Listening to "Dancing on my Own" at an old strip club bar/club.  Paying too much money to see Mumford and Sons ( but worth it!).

St. Patrick's Day at Bailey's singing Karaoke w/Kathryn and winning the contest thanks to our fabulous rendition of Tina Turner's "Proud Mary" (w/dance moves).  Oh, and taking students on a field trip to University of Louisiana in Lafayette. The beach and Austin, Texas w/Leigh Anne.

Winning a bunny at the farm festival with my sweeties.  Tequila tasting at Bailey's and taking a day off with Kathryn to go to The Bull Dog in New Orleans for pint night (best decision ever!).

Jazz Fest!! Cochon de Lait w/my family and friends. The best Bon Voyage parties! The most amazing view you'll ever see in Louisiana. Falling in love.  Saying goodbye to beautiful and amazing friends I made while I lived in Louisiana for two years.

Moving back to Texas.

California with Anjali and Liz.  My first Indian wedding experience.  Spending time with my cousin on the beautiful island of Cozumel drinking piña coladas and soaking up the sun.

Moving to Saint Louis, starting a new job, starting graduate school, gaining new friends and wonderful new roommates.

Going to Lou Fest with Janie and seeing Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Alabama Shakes, The Killers, and Icona Pop.  An amazing Labor Day weekend with someone who made me very happy.  My first STL Cardinals baseball game.

Fall in St. Louis!  Apple and pumpkin picking in Illinois.  One of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever experienced.  Seeing the Lumineers with Jess and Alex! Reuniting with my favorite people in Louisiana and the most epic Halloween costume ever!

Hearing Laverne Cox speak.  The most beautiful fall leaves I ever did see.  My first Diwali experience.

Lots of healing. TEDx STL Women's event with Jess. Meeting Ellie Kemper. My first snowfall in St. Louis. Following my heart and choosing to take big risks...with a little help from my friends :)
