2012 was good to us.

“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different…(C.S. Lewis)

It seems impossible that I don’t have many recorded memories of the beautiful things that happened this year.

Several months ago I bought a camera that was too expensive and I vowed to keep track of these sorts of things. You know, of birthdays celebrated, family gathered, trips taken, cakes baked, houses turned into homes, and lazy afternoons wasted.

Like most things, I started off strong but my enthusiasm waned. I have a notoriously short attention span, especially with regards to hobbies. Then the days just blew by. I haven’t slowed down much to think or process the changes, much less snap a photo.

This year, though….this year, I want to remember.

Resolutions are a prescription for an end of the year guilt trip for the scattered folk like me, so I won’t call this by that name. However, my honest attempt to keep a little space reserved for my favorite pictures and memories will be kept here.

For starters, an Instagram review of the year. There were far too many good ones to choose from, but a select few highlights…




Getting engaged, Texas home, California vacations, sweet nephews, mimosas, handmade gifts (and my sweet Coco Bean!), wedding dresses, bridal showers, Friendsgiving, and spending every moment possible with Jon. 2012 was good to us.
