Farewell 2012….Last call

Once again we’ve been blessed with a Christmas abroad, and even better — with family (my family at least). Wait…there’s more…. Christmas with my 10-month old nephew, whom I have never met. Needless to say, I am SUPER excited!!

With this trip, not only will I see my brother and sister-in-law (I haven’t seen them since they came to visit in 2010), see my mom, explore the UK, and meet my nephew — I will say farewell to 2012.

This year has really just flown by — I cannot believe our trip to S.A. was a year ago already! So…. I think it’s only natural to reflect on the past year and what it has brought….

  • My nephew was born
  • I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Elementary Education, with honors mind you! 😛
  • I passed all my exams
  • I successfully completed student teaching
  • I made new friends, both young and old **shout out to Mrs. C’s 4th grade class and the students & staff at the school**
  • After a year of “relaxing” and not making a concerted effort trying to get pregnant….. we are still not expecting….take that all those who say “oh, now you’ll get pregnant” when a couple says they are taking a break from trying or are no longer trying. [In case you were wondering, that makes 4 years of TTC…but hey, who’s counting?]
  • One of my favorite bloggers welcomed her daughter home!! 😀
  • I lost a little a lot of faith in mankind…. so many innocent lives lost this year….. heartbreaking.
  • To make up for our lack of offspring…we added 2 furry additions to our family!
  • I said goodbye to nannying…. [miss those two munchkins!]
  • We celebrated 5 years of marriage…. so blessed to have found and married my soul mate – seriously.

My hopes and dreams for 2013 —

  • Get a job! Top priority!
  • Become certified….. *darn you red tape!!
  • Continue to grow closer to my husband
  • Make more time for volunteering and doing the things I love
  • Either get a bun in this oven, or take the oven in for a tune up!

I think that’s about it…. I hope 2012 brought you happiness, growth, and love…and may 2013 bring you even more than you dream!!
