Piper’s Run in 2013

All I can say is, What a Year! Lots of fun things happened at Piper’s Run in 2013; little feet, outdoor fun, running, time with family and friends, hard days, hard nights, gatherings, play dates and a whole lot more.

A few of your favourite posts (and mine too):

January: A New Year a new way of living life as a family of four. This was the month of figuring out life with two little girls and managing them on my own as my husband worked days and nights. I struggled for a little while with How to Love Two Children Equally but in the end managed to figure it out. I started to get active postpartum and start the long haul of losing the baby weight.

February: Blogging took a backseat to everything and I was okay with that. I had a baby and toddler to focus on. I tried to get out as much as possible but sometime would take Baby H walking indoors.

March: This was the month I had the BEST PARENTING DAY EVER, along with feeling like Super-Mom for a day! This was a good month 🙂

April: Lilly had her first hair cut, I went stroller running for the first time and had my first Mama’s night out!!

May: This month was the month I started (and never) finished monthly challenges. At least I tried. I also started my Operation Get Fit  for the bridesmaid dress. I was rather focused on working out so I could fit into the dress – hard work pays off.

June: All of a sudden I had a 3 Year Old and6 Month old…just…like…that!

July: I struggled with trying to balance it all and the fact that I take on too much and turned 33.

August: It felt like a quiet month yet busy with the girls. I gave up milk and Coca-Cola (no, I didn’t drink these together) and posts on the TOTS family page about How it’s important for Girls to play in the dirt too!

September: We traveled with the girls to Halifax, hit up Target for the first time and went to a wedding and we ate some good food from a local Food Truck.

October: I managed to do two runs this month: Valley Harvest 5k, the Miles for Miracles 5k but more importantly, Lilly ran her first race and we survived Halloween. We also had a great Thanksgiving with my family.

November: My husband and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary. I signed up for the Fall into Fitness 30 Day Challenge and blogged almost every day – sometimes twice a day. A few of my favourite posts from the challenge were:

  1. Rest Day on Day 2 of the Challenge {Crazy, I know!}
  2. The Value of a DVD workout
  3. Don’t Judge a Book by It’s Cover
  4. What’s a Workout ?

December: This was a BIG month for us! I returned to work after a year of being on maternity leave, my husband became a Canadian Citizen, we celebrated Hilary’s 1st birthday and celebrated Christmas!

After writing this post I have to admit, it’s been a pretty amazing year. I’m thankful for my little (and big) family, my friends and all the opportunities I’ve had in 2013. I’m all ready for 2014! Let the fun begin!

What’s one of your memorable moments in 2013?

Anything you can look back and wish you did differently?

  1. It sounds like you have had an awesome year! I’m reading your Best Parenting Day post now and it’s making me smile so big. I can’t wait for my daughter to get a little older so that I can start sharing things I really enjoy with her. You are such a cool mom! 🙂 I love all the pics too!
