Happy New Year!
How many of you actually made it until midnight?? I barely did!
We were in our jammies all night waiting for midnight. We watched some Amish Mafia while waiting. Who knew the Amish were so hardcore?? Crazy stuff there…
The New Year always makes me think about what has happened in the past year. I love to look back and see all the blessings Luvy and I have received. In fact, I don’t even mind thinking about the failures of the past year, because they are just life lessons that make me wiser. Right?
I think many times we jump into a New Year, make a ton of “resolutions”, and expect our lives to change overnight. Now, I’m not against resolutions, but I think that it is important to reflect back first. I like to look at my life over the past year, see what I need to improve upon and then make resolutions. Plus, you can learn so much from just looking back and reflecting.
2012 was a BIG year for us. I started doing a “Best of” post in October and I really love doing those posts. It helps to look back and to reflect on each month. Going forward, I think I will continue this in some form.
Here are some of my favorite things from 2012:
April- I decided to turn my “online journal” into a blog and get more involved in the blog world.

We had a busy year!! I can’t wait to see what God brings in 2013!!
One of the biggest blessings of 2012 was deciding to get involved more in blogging. You all have no idea how much you mean to me. All your comments, encouragement, tweets, etc make my day. Thank you.
Of course, I blog for myself but I always have you all in mind. I love feedback, so feel free to let me know what you would like to see more of in 2013!
What sticks out to you about 2012?
Do you like to reflect over the past year to see what you learned and how far you have come?
