It's amazing to me to see how much happens in a year's time. In life. In blogland. At work.
2012 was a good year. I won't say it was "great" but, it was good. There have been ups and downs, that is FOR SURE. I am honestly sooo pumped for 2013 to roll in and to have that fresh start.
This year I've made LOTS of new blog friends, and some of you are newer than others. Perhaps a look back at 2012 at some favorite moments/posts will help the newest ones! Or give you 'old-timers' a glance back at my blog too ;)

It's crazy, how writing this post makes you feel. Some of these things feel like they were just yesterday, and others feel like it's been a lifetime since they happened. I'm thankful for this blog where I've documented SO MUCH of 2012. I cannot wait to see what I get to share with the blogworld in 2013.
Happy New Year everyone!!
