14 Best Moments of 2014!

Right before the new year rolls around, I like to take a look back at the year that has passed. Did I achieve what I wanted to achieve? What were my favorite highs? Any teachable lows? And with that, I try to determine what are some of my hopes, dreams and goals for the upcoming year.

At first when I started to think about 2014, I figured that it wasn’t that big of a year. Everything was just same old, same old. That was until I started to really think through it. I take it back. This was a pretty eventful year! Here are my top 14 moments from 2014. Hope you like it!

It has given me so much! An American Graduation Ceremony is very different from what I am used to, but I liked it. Walking across that stage made me think back on the two years I have spent earning my degree and how much it has changed my perspective.

4. My Mom Came to Visit!14 best of 2014: Drive through tree LeggetIn April my mom and Magnar came to visit me for a couple of weeks. We travelled all around Northern California and I had a great time! They have visited me before and we have previously taken the Highway 1 tour down to Southern California so this time around, we wanted to focus north. We went to see the giant Sequoia trees up in Legget and even drove through one!

  1. To Hege……regarding your Apple Cake, am I correct in saying the first 3 ingredients would be 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup flour, and 1/2 cup sugar? Seems like so much butter for a small 9 inch cake pan. Please let me know as I want to make it, it sounds so yummy!! Thanks, Jeanne
