Raising a kid and going to WDW. A lot.

Out with the old, in with the 2014

Out with the old, in with the 2014

(Don't forget this week's Peanut, published the same day!)

Looking back, 2013 put us through the ringer.  Rifling back through past entries, I can't believe this was all just one year.  I do know that, without the smiles of my little girl and the support of my incredible husband, this year could very well have broken me.  It also saw me in awe of the wonders of parenting.

So, if you want to catch up/ recap, here are the most memorable moments of 2013 on MinkFlamingos.
