It's been a big year, and these snapshots are really just the tip of the iceberg (the most momentous event by far, being the addition of a boy-child). I can't help but reflect on all the good that has come to us in the past year, as well as a fair few struggles too. I'm looking forward to what 2013 will bring. I think it will be a very different year in lots of ways, though there will still be much of the same too (thankfully, because I am a creature of comfort). I'm sorry I haven't provided any links, it was challenging enough for me to compile this visual list, and really made me appreciate how much I've actually done these past twelve months. I'm sad to say that much of it was inconsequential, but we've had a lot of fun.
Today is the last day of this amazing year, and also the 5 year anniversary of me and my love (*ahem* yes, New Years Eve). We will celebrate with a rare just-the-two-of-us date, and then dinner out with our little ones, before finding a party to get in amongst. Farewelling 2012 and ringing in the new. Happy New Year, friends.
