Discovering Alexandra’s New Year with The Quiz of The Year


A fellow blogger asked us to participate in this quiz (see Saddles to Shorelines for her answers)…so I’d better get my answers out before I get too much into this New Year!

I’ll share my thoughts from the Alexandra side of the Founders of The Back Forty Fliers…and you can see Darrell’s here.

What were your highlights of 2016?

One of the biggest highlights of 2016 for me was moving into and settling in our new condo (affectionately called Home Sweet Play Pad), after spending a year creating, manifesting, and finding our perfect home.  It has become the oasis of joy, coziness, and endless view of the Pacific Ocean.

Another great highlight was getting our Professional Certified Coach certification from the ICF after completing 2 years of preparation and study.

Name one thing you are likely to remember about 2016 if asked in five years time?

I will always remember 2016 as a year of manifesting and moving into our home.

Sum up 2016 in one word.


Name one pearl of wisdom from 2016 that you will carry into 2017.

“And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!” And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.” – Iain Thomas

Do you have any new year resolutions?

We don’t make resolutions, instead Darrell and I have our Created 2017.  We spend (as we always do) some good quality time in December creating our intentions and results for 2017. Darrell and I have plans for the growth of The Back Forty, deepening of our relationship, and our individual personal and professional growth.  Also every year I create a theme for the year and 2017 is the Year of Joyful Expansion.  I am very excited to see what that will bring.

How did you ring in the new year?

With new friends and neighbors, and great music, drinks, food, and watching fireworks over the ocean.

What are your goals for 2017?

Expansion of The Back Forty, deepening of my relationship, and personal and professional growth.

Anyone is welcome to join in, and share your answers to or thoughts about the above questions.
