Hey, I made it! Fifty-two weeks, fifty-two new (to me) activities. I did some things I’d always wanted to do, and I tried some things I’d never realized Fort Collins had to offer. I found some great new places, did a few good deeds, and met some of the nicest people imaginable. I discovered the fine community of local bloggers and took a lot of mystery photos. I had a couple of scheduling snafus and last-minute scrambles, but I somehow managed to make every post.
My sons suggested that I choose my favorite activities for a Friday Five, but I really can’t narrow it down. So here are five things I learned (or re-learned) during my year of blogging in and about Fort Collins.
1. A camera without a charged battery is just a really clumsy necklace.
2. Be flexible. Like our fickle weather, plans can and do change at a moment’s notice.
3. The all events calendar rocks.
4. Talented, caring, hard-working folks? We has them.
5. The nickname “Fort Fun” couldn’t be more appropriate.
In fact, I had so much fun that I decided to keep going. After all, I haven't even come close to crossing everything off my to-do list. I’ll continue to find new things to try, but I might throw in some old favorites, too.
Thanks to everyone who followed along this year. I hope you’ll stick around to see what the next year brings. But the biggest thank you goes to my husband and sons. I couldn’t have done it without you.
Last week's picture was taken at Avogadro's Number.
Where in Fort Collins was this week's picture taken?
