2013: a brief summary

January 20th: Had a baby boy named River. His birth was supposed to be a natural birth at a birthing center but labor stalled for a few hours and I had to get an emergency C-section due to a rather large fibroid blocking the birth canal. 
 February: Back to work already, hosting a Steampunk Valentine's Day Ball
 March: Our first Easter
April 18th: My 28th birthday. The most boring and by far the most disappointing birthday ever.
  May: Cross dressed for the first time ever.
June: Went to New York for the first time!
July: My first TV interview for the faire.
August: Hosted a beard and moustache competition that was a total flop.
 September: Didn't win an Alaskan Cruise.
 October: Hosted the 2nd annual Texarkana Renaissance Faire. Eh, it was ok.
 November: River's first Thanksgiving.
December: River's first Christmas, and our first "real" Christmas.
So that's it! How was your 2013? Good? Bad? So-so???


  1. Eventful year with ups and downs and lovely photos! Many first times for little River :)

    Haha your dream was strange, so funny that I was in it :D

  2. Very nice to see your whole year laid out like this. And it's hard to believe we've been online friends for less than a year, because baby boy was already here when we first 'met'. It feels like longer and I am happy that we did meet ... looking forward to sharing each of our ups and down in 2014!

  3. Bloody hell, you've had a huge year!!!
    Hmmm, I'd have to look back over my blog-which is such a good diary, as my memory is dreaful-to see what I got up to. A fair bit, I think. It was mostly good!
    Ha, I am obsessed with square dance frocks due to Elsa Billgren, and I just can't get enough of them!!! ARGH!!
    Happy New Year, baby! XXX

  4. Quite a year, and it's been fun following along like a dirty, little stalker!

  5. You are so funny. You blow through this year like it's nothing special but what a f#%king amazing year!!!!!

  6. An amazing year! you have been busy, really busy and achieved loads, I can't believe you were back at work so soon too (after a C section!) I really admire you, I think I had a 2 year zombie patch after mine were born, I don't even remember brushing my teeth ewww!! x x x

  7. ohhh, so other than that, not much happened. (I'm referring to MY past year in comparison!!) What a great synopsis of key events, no one puts it out there like you do, my friend. Here's to 2014.

  8. Looks like a great year to me! Baby boy got soo big!
