2012, back in time to say good bye

Dear friends,

Happy New Year!!!

Thank you for checking back in to visit and read after my long hiatus. I really appreciate the friends and family who have mentioned missing my blog updates, and as promised, I do plan to bring back the blogging for 2013. I can’t totally explain my absence, except to say that I had a bad case of writer’s block and also began to feel a bit self-obsessed with this little space in the internet. But I am back and so thankful for you to come back alongside me!

2012 was a good year and because my blog was quiet, here are some highlights:

1 Vacation to Palm Desert with my fam, but most of the time it was just me and Ash.
2 Became a fan of Angels' baseball
3 Sad about the passing of Whitney Houston and Nora Ephron
4 Traveled with Ash to DC to visit our good friend, Nikki, and our cousins
5 Heard Anne Lamott talk (for the second time), stalked George Clooney, saw celebrities for an opening night of theater in LA, & “met” several famous women at the LA Women’s Expo
6 Permed my very straight hair 
7 Spent Thanksgiving with Mom’s side of the family in Sarasota, FL!
8 Lots of time spent at Disneyland
10 Soaked up time with family and friends (especially the Teri’s)

This New Year, 2013, will bring a lot of change for me due to work, family, and housing. So my theme, rather than a resolution, will be to be open to change, and therefore brave. I will continually remind myself to welcome change and remind myself that I can do hard things. I know it will be a great year of lessons and learning, which is only fitting since 2012 has been so relatively easy on me. All in all, I am looking forward to the journey.  

I wish you all a very happy, peaceful, healing, and healthy 2013.
