Well, although we’re already more than week into 2013, I still had to put together a review post for 2012.
I know that not everyone loves reading these posts. I totally get how reviewing everything that has happened for someone else over a year doesn’t always relate to everyone, so if that’s you, feel free to skip ahead. No harm, no foul.
I, however, absolutely love writing these posts, mostly for my own selfish reasons. It gives me the opportunity to reflect back on everything that has happened – all the highs and the lows – and have it all in one place. And I quickly realized, after it took me over an hour and half to compile this post…2012 was a pretty crazy awesome year.
Jay and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary.
I was offered a job as a personal trainer at a local gym.
And on the same day, began my job personal training.
We traveled to Mexico and spent the week with six of our best friends/family.

I wrote the most exciting post I’ve ever written, announcing to the world that Jay and I are expecting our first, long-awaited baby.
2012 was an unbelievable year. While there were a few struggles and downs, overall, everything really came together for us in 2012. I consider myself so incredibly lucky for all for all of the wonderful things I have in my life, and the opportunities that I’ve had.
As great as 2012 was though, I have a feeling that 2013 is going to be even MORE exciting…and I can’t wait to see what else happens!
