Thinking back on this year has made me realize how fast life is going. I always think of that quote "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." — Ferris Bueller
Well, I'm looking...and there's not a day that goes by that I don't appreciate it. Thinking back on the year, we've done so much, experienced so many amazing things:
I'm 30! Had the best birthday a girl could ask for! Surprised by all of my best friends!
We went to Puerto Rico to celebrate our friends Azz and Twigs marriage and it was a BLAST!
I got to see my best girlfriends so much with all of Katie and Luke's wedding events and was spoiled by their smiles all summer! And the wedding itself - soooo fun!
We moved to Brooklyn! We officially became adults living in a quiet neighborhood filled with amazing shops, restaurants and splurged on all new furniture! Plus, I bought my first very own vacuum (and I couldn't wait to use it! Don't tell anyone!)
We celebrated my niece Caroline's 1st birthday! She is getting so big and is such an amazing little girl. She really is the smartest.
We faced 2 scares of cancer in our parents. But they are cured and are doing fantastic (kow)!
I got a promotion! After working at Bloomberg for almost 2 years, I was promoted and am loving my new colleagues and my new gig!
Nate took me to Portugal and Italy where we drank porto and ate preggo, then demolished fresh lemon pasta, several bottles of vino and fell in love all over again.
"Euro Mommy" surprised me in London with Dana! We got to see the Crown Jewels, Buckingham Palace (Dana really thinks she is a princess!), The Tower of London, the pubs, the cabbies, the fish and chips, and so much more.
And finally, our newest addition: Archie! Our little Aussiedoodle who wags his behind and actually smiles when he sees us.
I truly can't believe all that has happened in one year and am so thankful and blessed that it all has.
The year 2012 was amazing but I can only hope that 2013 is going to bring so much more love, health and happiness.
