Happy New Year from India… and WOWZA, what a year it’s been!

The dancers in Jaipur started blowing fire!

As the fire-breathing dancers in Jaipur illuminated the night, wonderful events illuminated 2012!

After the dance, puppeteers took the stage in Jaipur. What will take the stage for 2013?

  1. We have been ‘fans’ of yours for around 18 months. I found your blog during our planning time. Now, we’ve been traveling (nomadically) for 12 months.

    Four days ago we launched our blog! We’re just babies 🙂 But reading posts like this one really inspires us and shows us what amazing things can be achieved if you put your heart into it.

    Congrats on all the milestones and achievements you have made. Here is to many many more!

  2. Wow that’s Great!! GO YOU! 🙂

  3. Wow – what a busy year! I’m excited to see what you’re up to next year… 🙂

  4. Sounds like 2012 was a great year. Hopefully 2013 will be even better!

  5. Sounds like a wonderful year! All the best in 2013 and look forward to reading about your adventures in India.

  6. Great insight about your 2012! Happy new year! 2013 will be a better year 😀

  8. so wonderful to see your stats, to see your growth. clearly, you are changing lives lillie. you are doing amazing things. and such color to the world of travel and education. good on you nomad!

  9. Girl, when do you sleep?! Impressive accomplishments. I guess you don’t get married every year, but still….

    I found your blog over the summer and I started my own blog (Boomeresque) this year. You are definitely one of my blogging heroes. I want to be you when I grow up ‘cept I’m old enough to be your mother. No biggie. Even Baby Boomers can still have growing up to do — or growing out — or something.

    Best wishes for another fabulous happy and healthy year. You rock.

  10. WOW, Lille. What a year! I didn’t quite realise you’d accomplished so much during the last 12 months.

    Not that it’s a race or anything, but your streaking ahead in the ‘things done’ & ‘places seen’ categories.

  11. Congratulations, what a great year you had! I missed your wedding this year! Wow! Congratulations and all the best for 2013.

  12. Definitely a great year and enjoyed tagging along with you here. You are about a year ahead of me in terms of blogging, so I’m hoping that means my own site will see such awesome growth in 2013! Hope you’re having a blast in India!

  13. Beautiful attire and fabrics! Looks like fun!

  14. Wishing you happy travels in 2013. What a trip!

  15. Awesome stats. Looking forward to more articles, page views, and laughs in the coming year!

    • Thank so much, Adam! It’s been so happy that my site has connected me with wonderful people like you!
