Twenty Twelve

Originally I was not going to do one of these post. On New Year’s Eve I told Joel, “you know, I need to make 2013 a more memorable year…because I can’t even remember anything I did in 2012.” He then of course reminded me of a few very important things we achieved over the year, but I figured it was a little late to do the post. Over the last week, and only being into the first week of the year, I decided to go for it. Looking back on 2012 sure made me glad that I blog. Not only can I look back and remember what I did in 2012, I have the pictures to put me right back there in those moments. 2012 was a great year, but I need to make 2013 that much better…
In 2012 I……

    Sounds like you had a great year! I always need to be reminded of all the little things I've got up to as well, but blogging definitely makes that easier 🙂
