this is a master list of some things that made 2012 probably one of my favorite years yet.

Obviously there are tons more little and big things that made 2012 great.

I had a great Christmas with multiple family celebrations and a great trip down to Asheville. So thankful to have another entire week off before heading back to work. Ready to hole in and read, yoga, etc. I am still putting the finishing touches on my resolutions list, will be back with those probably tomorrow. I'm thinking about switching things up on the blog here, will let you know what I have in mind.

I hope everyone had a great holiday and also a great year. Cheers,
