Looking back on 2016 I picked a few things from the year I really enjoyed. I haven't written about all these things yet nor does this cover everything I thought was good about the year but here are a few cool things:
I started the year off in Costa Rica for a couple of weeks. I wrote about it a lot since it was such an amazing place. Here's one post: Costa Rica and a picture of me zip lining over the jungle.
Not too long after that I went to Houston for a wedding and was thrilled to go somewhere I had always wanted to visit as a kid: Johnson Space Center
Then there was my favorite art show from the year at Rogue Buddha Gallery: Rachel Girard's Dolls.
I had my first craft show in March in Madison, Wisconsin. It was wonderful. Geek Craft Expo.
I published my first e-book which spent a day at #1 on Amazon. You can buy it here.
I attended a few events hosted by the MN Historical Society and really got a kick out of them. You can read about some of them here.
I attended my first World Con. Which included a visit to some beautiful places in KC, MO. I will be writing more about them soon but here's a snap from the art museum.
I visited Las Vegas again. Seems to be a main stay in my travel. Wrote about the incredible food. Also took a day trip to the Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon as I've wanted to go there for sometime as I am working on crossing off all these iconic American places on my travel list.
That's just a few good things.
There are more things actually. It was all-in-all not a bad year for me personally even if it seemed so very overwhelming for so many other people.
I'm not sure what 2017 will bring but I am trying very hard to look for the good in the seeming rising dark.
