Reflection of 2012: The Good, The Bad, The interesting!

2012 just kinda came and went for me. I seriously kept thinking were in 2011 and getting ready to hit 2012 but were not. Why does it seem like some years are like that and others are epic? Anyway I really wanted to take the time to reflect at what all had been done. Before I sat and went through my facebook and blog posts the only thing I could have told you is that my gram died. I guess cause of all the experiences that had that effected me the most. However it was great to look back and realize all the good things that happend that I had forgotten about! So here's a little look into what my 2012 looked like...

Had a lot of firsts....

I dyed my hair red!

I went camping without my parents and no electric!

I did a festival by myself!

Physically sat and watched a complete sunset.

Got my first puppy!

Some sad things...

  1. This is one of the big reasons why I love blogging, the recap. Maybe the first or second year I started my blog, I felt like I had done nothing special all year but when you look back through your posts you see all these great things you forgot happened. Seems like you had a pretty epic year to me!
    Happy new year!

    1. Happy New Year Angel!! You are so right even though sometimes it feels like I am posting on fb and my blog for nothing I now see the true value... memories! :D

  2. Of all the things on the list, the French Macaroons stood out for me lol. I suppose I have a teeny tiny sweet tooth

    1. haha they were good one little secret goal for next year will be try to make them myself!
