Before moving forward into 2013, I wanted to take a moment & look back at my year in 2012 here on the blog. It's so fun to remember all the things I went through. Here's a brief overview & highlights from the year....
January proved to be a month of great change. I left my first adult job for a new one & began my marriage series (which is still my favorite!) with this post.
February was when I found my groove for the year... between sharing weight loss frustrations & my joy over small victories in marriage, I also shared part of C & I's love story ♥
March brought with it a bunch of motivation. I celebrated my sister Dana's birthday, and (my favorite thing of the month!) painted my niece's nursery before her arrival!
April was one of my favorite months because my niece Pepper Jo was born!! I had so much fun holding her for the first time and celebrating with my family ♥ C &I also went on the great Taco adventure.
In May, I showed a tour of our first apartment and told lessons I learned from my nephew. But most importantly: C got his college diploma & I was so proud of him I SHOUTED it for all to read!
In June, I brought back my Beat the Heat series with a feature on Austin and Rosemary summer cocktails. And I celebrated my 24th birthday by remembering my favorites from the year ♥
July was a busy month, because we moved. While packing, I discovered our "love boxes". We also celebrated our 3 year anniversary, and I promised myself to not be a statistic.
In August I launched a new look and new name on the blog, and we had our pictures taken by Everlee photography.
In September I talked about fashion and marriage. I also launched the Blogging: A Tutorial series.
In October we celebrated C's 25th birthday by going out to do Halloween in Austin. But the biggest news was getting a new job and loving it after the first week ♥
November began with me hitting 1000 posts on the blog, and then quickly running away to New Orleans for an extended weekend. I had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend and Texas A&M beat Alabama (Whoop!).
December was a month I set aside to finish well. We happily hosted Danzig for a weekend, I shared a few secrets, and C made a fantastic December mixtape.
I loved 2012. It was so much fun, I learned a lot & I can definitely say that I'm a better person now than I was a year ago. Thanks for reading my 2012 recap. Now let's look forward to 2013!! ♥
