As 2012 draws to a close, I find myself reflecting back over the year, its highs and lows.
- Getting back to work, even if only part-time
- My blog redesign!
- We took our first vacation in six years
- Liam's first birthday
- And my favorite Christmas present — an engagement ring!
- With me working only part-time, we've struggled financially at times
- We're still in our crappy apartment
- One of our dogs is having some health issues, and it's a reminder that she's getting older
I've made some goals for 2013:
- Find a full-time, permanent position
- Make an effort to eat healthier and exercise more often
What were your highs and lows? What are you goals for 2013?
I also thought it would be fun to check look back over the past year, and feature the top 12 most popular posts. These posts, this whole blog, are popular because of YOU, and I really do appreciate every single pageview, every single comment, every single share. Knowing that you read, share, and try these recipes yourselves makes it all the more enjoyable for me.
