In January I discovered my new favorite latte.
In February I went rock climbing for the first and last time.
In March I completed the photo-a-day challenge and reunited with my college roommates in Denver (which I didn't blog about, I'm not sure why).
In April we went to New York City and saw the Broadway play Book of Mormon.
In May we finally furnished our dining room and subsequently bought me a new car when my Pontiac got totaled (still maintain, not my fault). Additionally my family came to visit and we took them to their first, but not last, Ranger baseball game.
In June Obamacare was upheld and we had to buy Dan a new car when someone plowed into him in downtown Dallas.
In July I literally had to check myself into shoe-a-holic anonymous.
In August I went on a girls trip to San Antonio.
In September, Dan and I went on a little Lakeaway vacay on Lake Austin.
In October Taylor Swift's new album came out and I generally enjoyed Fall.
In November we had a great Thanksgiving which included a fried turkey.
In December we had a great time with our families over the holidays.
I made a lot of New Years Resolutions this year, and did a pretty good job sticking them.
I made it about halfway through the year making mini resolutions each month.
I organized all my recipes and lost twenty pounds on Weight Watchers.
I read well over twenty five books (thirty eight!) and went on well over three vacations (Five! Denver, NYC, San Antonio, Lakeaway, and Boise)
I was on the grants committee for a local woman's organization, furnished the dining room, and got my degrees framed for my office.
Dan and I started watching movies every Friday night and I even kept a running list of all the movies we watched.
Resolutions I didn't complete? I still didn't run a half marathon. Didn't redecorate the bedroom. I didn't do a good job creating rituals for every holiday, and I didn't write for pleasure as much as I would have liked.
But overall, my New Years Resolution was a gigantic success.
One of my favorite parts of this year was finally getting Instagram. Accordingly I was able to document the year with photographs:
2012 was truly one of my favorite years and I am sad to see it go. That being said, I am hoping for big things in 2013 as Dan and I have eagerly dubbed it the year of fun. More on that tomorrow. Until then, have a happy and safe New Years Eve, cheers!
