What are my personal bests of 2015? It’s safe to assume everything about my trip to England and Greece is high on the list, but I had some other great things come into my life this year as well. Here are some of my favorites:
Favorite Concert: Pentatonix!
Favorite Weekend: Aside from every weekend in Europe, the best weekend of the year was having friends up to my parents’ cabin in June. It was perfect.
Favorite New Recipe: Crock Pot Chicken and Wild Rice from Iowa Girl Eats
Favorite Craft Project: I learned to make a Katniss Cowl!

Favorite Bookstore: Foyle’s flagship store on Charing Cross Road – five stories, four miles of shelves, 200,000 books. Amazing.
Favorite View: The Mediterranean Sea from our hotel on Poros. I will never get over this view, or forget the experience of seeing this for the first time. Life goal achieved.
