Every year we come to this point where we are faced with new beginnings, new challenges, new opportunities. It is also time to reflect on what has happened!
January: I experimented with a month of noteworthy gratuitous things. It ranged from alarm clocks to sunshine and ended with a reminder of the love of friendship, drawing, and hard work.
February: Tis my birthday month where I turned a quarter of a century old. Tis the month I celebrated my 9 year anniversary. Tis the month I gave up junk food for a week...eep!
March: Happy St Patrick's Day! We don't really celebrate though...at least most of us don't...
Hmm what else? Oh yes, I finally read The Fault in Our Stars! Geez, what a tear jerker.
April: This month was filled with lovely neighborhood walks...
Short Vegas trips...
And Olivia's birthday!
May: I caught a big ambitious bug for designing a new future for myself. A bit of a premature rush as things thwarted my plans but it gave me a new light to what I was capable of.
Woody and Buzz were the continuous theme of this year ... apparently.
AND Olivia graduated college! Yowzas...
June: Carsland opened! And very odd family photos...
July: This month was quite significant because....the Olympics! Yowzas! Ooh and my cousin was married in this glorious month! Wee!
Lots of beach trips!
And farmer markets =)
August: My family and I took a fantastic summer trip out to the glorious northern part of California
September: This was a happy and sad month. We celebrated Jeanne's 21st birthday
We lost a beautiful soul in our family: Sweetie
And in less important news, we attended our first ever soccer match.
October: Halloween snuck up on us
November: Let's see what I've done this month... I watched The Lorax...
We celebrated my grandmother's 80something birthday
We celebrated Odona's 21st birthday as well =)
December: Holy holidays! We started off the month with a visit to Home Depot
It ended with a fantastically happy Christmas party
All in all 2012 was wonderful and I wouldn't change a thing. Who knows what will come in the new year? There's only one way to find out. Let us live, learn, and blog about it =)
Thank you so much for going through this journey with me. Happy New Year and cheers to another start.
