Thanks to all of my friends, family and those of you out there who have sat down for a cup of coffee and a little fireside chat here at my little ole blog. All of your comments, emails and posts warm my heart and I have made some great blog friends throughout the years.
2012 has been fun and challenging and had its ups and downs and laughs and tears. All in all, I am thankful for each day that I am given and for each post and picture I get to share with you. Life is a gift, cherish it and thanks for letting me share mine.
January: Lots of trying news and faith lessons to kick off the year.
February: A positive pregnancy test and Dad’s surgery and a trip to Keystone.
May: My lame 30th birthday, we announced that we were expecting and I spent 3 days in the hospital for morning sickness. They started me on a zofran pump shortly after!
June: We found out we were having a BOY!
July: AM started swim lessons, my high school friends and I took a little lake trip together, my family took us to the beach, and we made decisions on pre-school and ramped up the time outs a bit!
August: Did a yard sale, started a new job teaching, AM started gymnastics and school and we got new bookshelves.
September: AM turned two and I spent a gazillion dollars on goodie bags, CT3 and AM began having regular Daddy/Daughter dates and AM’s babysitter and favorite friend left us for a new job as I turned in my notice.
October: I wrote maybe one of my favorite posts ever, went to the Price Is Right show with Kris and CT3 and took AM to the aquarium.
November: AM was the cutest little doctor for Halloween and Baby Bro arrived! I had an amazing delivery experience and Thanksgiving was enjoyed by all!
December: I ranted about the Elf on the Shelf, talked about perspectives and reminisced on Christmases past. Baby Bro got on a decent schedule and had his first illness.
From new babies to cancer surgeries, from Colorado vacations to beach vacations, from break ups to home buying, swim lessons, time outs and potty training, its been a year to remember.
Thanks to each of you who read and comment and love and support me and my family! I wouldn’t be who I am without you and I appreciate each of you and I hope you will stick around for 2013!
Here’s to 2012 and friends, family, health, blessings, love and Jesus. May 2013 be sweeter, special-er and a bit sassier!
