At the end of 2012, I was working two part-time jobs, as well as freelancing. In January, I said goodbye to freelancing and the part-time job I had been working for about 18 months. My co-workers sent me off in the best possible way, with laughter:
The second part-time job I had picked up in the fall of 2012 offered me a full-time position, and I jumped at it.

I remember hearing this quote a few years back and thinking, If only I could get paid to Tweet and Facebook and tinker with online design all day... Pfft, like that would happen. In January that pie-in-the-sky dream became a reality when I accepted the position of Communications Director for a local non-profit organization.
On Sundays, I got to play with one of my favorite people, co-teaching at our Religious School.
Working only one job, I found more time to relax at home.
A fun month, it started with a yummy lunch in Charleston, SC.
And it ended with finding out whether blondes have more fun during our Purim celebration. (I got major props for going to Temple dressed as a pig.)
Hubby and I spent many a night at Bar Mitzvah parties. This one was at The Zone at Williams-Brice Stadium, where I proved my true allegiance as a Florida Gator.
My mom came to visit to celebrate both our birthdays. We celebrated hers with surprise tickets to Les Miserables.
In between birthday celebrations, I led a super small, 15-minute Passover Seder.
And I admittedly cheated at the end of Passover to celebrate my birthday by sharing my favorite Charleston restaurants with my mom...
...and to EAT CUPCAKES!
All in all, it was a fun and satisfying start to the year.
