We had some pretty great times in 2012.
- Turned 29 (definitely wrote 28 at first. I have no idea how old I am)
- Took a fabulous trip to California
- Finished a round of radioactive iodine
- Got engaged!!
- Ran a 5 mile race with the American Cancer Society
- Started wedding planning
- Finished three semesters of grad school (oof)
- Remained cancer free!
It doesn’t seem like 2013 would be able to top that, but I have a feeling it might. It’s the year of some major life changes. I’m turning 30, getting married, student teaching, graduating with my masters (fingers crossed!), and going on a honeymoon – all in the first six months of the year. INSANE. And I can’t wait
We also had a great time during the holidays this year. We threw our second annual Christmas party – a tradition that is quickly becoming a favorite in our household.
Doug, of course, planned the menu. The cheese plate was epic. Sadie supervised.
One thing we’ve done each year is set up our kitchen to be the “bar area,” with bartender included (generally a poor family member who cleans up pretty well at the end of the night). It leaves us and our guests free from making drinks and makes us seem way classier than we really are.
And no party would be complete without a roaring fire. Thank you, Netflix.
I start my student teaching practicum in three weeks. Until then, I’m attempting to relax. I say attempting, because I’m really bad at it. One of my goals between now and the start of the semester is to sit in my sun porch more often. We don’t utilize this room as much in the winter, which is ironic because it’s the brightest room in the house.
Maybe I should organize my bookshelves while I’m in here…
My major resolution this year is to ENJOY it. It’s going to go by so fast and with everything on my plate, I know I’m going to get stressed/caught up in it/looking to the next thing. This year is going to bring about a lot of changes and I’m determined to be present for all of them.
Do you make resolutions? What is your goal for the year?!
