I am closing out 2012 with this post. Fingers crossed that my husband will be up to travel on Sunday for a few days to get away, after playing "nurse Tina" 24/7 for the last 5 days I am ready
January...we moved, we finally did it!
April...a prayer for Teddy (and all your prayers worked)!
May...see what my dream wedding would look like
June...a living room is born.
July...movies, food and other fun topics!
August...love crowns and caronas!
September....Brimfield, the one and only!
October..a perfect month to talk about my favorite season!
November...who can ever forget Sandy!
December....what else, Christmas!
That everyone out there and I do mean everyone is fighting some kind of battle...some smaller and some bigger. By remembering that, it allows you to "give a break" to people and to be more forgiving, more tolerant, I have made a conscious effort to remind myself of this often.
That you should take every single opportunity given to travel and learn, spread your wings and absorb the knowledge out there, embrace the unknown. Any chance you are given...seize it. There is so much to discover and learn. This year I hope to practice what I preach and get out there and discover something wonderful and unexpected myself! I have a lot of living yet to do.....
That when I was younger and my parents used to tell me over and over how my handwritten letters and homemade gifts (of which there were many) were the best and most cherished of any, I never believed them. But now, I "get it". Saying they were right is an understatement. Seeing those darling letters and perfectly imperfect gifts made by my kids (then) cute little hands are truly amongst my most cherished possessions. Save every one, just touching them allows the memories to come rushing back!
That age is just a number, I have always thought this but now I really think it, live it and believe it. I don't feel too old to do anything,
well maybe wear velour sweat suits and UGGS, ...but I honestly feel like there's nothing I can't do. Health is wealth, that is for sure and it applies to your mental health as much as it does to your physical being. I want to continue to challenge myself to new things. What will you do to challenge yourself in 2013?
So that my dear friends and readers is a recap of 2012. Its been a great year, some highs and lows.....but I truly think the best is yet to come. For all those who check in with me every day...thank you. Thank you for your support, kind and encouraging words and sharing as you do. You make me want to get up and get busy on my blog every single day! I love the connections I get to make daily with so many from all over the world..that in itself is quite a phenomenon and a true blessing!
I wish everyone a blessed and full 2013, a year filled with great things, big achievements, personal goals, unedited laughter, too many smiles to count and above all good health. Cheers to a fabulous 2013!
