best of 2013

Happy New Year's Eve!  I love celebrating a new year.  It's an opportunity to review the past 365 days and to look forward to the next 365.  I like checking in, seeing where I've been and deciding where I want to go.  I especially love making "best of" lists, particularly because they're so fun to look back on.  Here are my top five favorite posts, my favorite books, movies, and
