I'm not going to act like this year has been all rainbows and roses because it hasn't!  I've had work struggles, love struggles, and in general, life struggles.  Although I don't broadcast the details of those on my blog I do have them but that's depressing and like all things those too pass.  I have had a really good year with a lot of first and just a lot of accomplishments. 

A look at the numbers...
1 great year
2 dogs
3 new babies that were made (Shae, Rachael, and Kaylynn)
4 trips (Jefferson, San Antonio, Beaver's Bend, and Ruidoso, NM)
21 hours of school completed
26 years...how old I turned
36 books read out of my goal of 50
2013 is going to bring so much....love, life, and excitement! 

I'm not even going to type any resolutions because I just break them anyways so I have some things I am going to try to work on but as I accomplish them I will let them be known. :)

Here's to loving harder, learning faster, and living without any inhibitions!  I'm ready for 2013
