I know, I know – this is like one of the gazillion 2012 recap blog posts that have appeared over the last few days. But I’m going to do it anyway. But, the question remains – do I just set goals for 2013, or do I go over my favorite things from 2012? 2012 was kind of a big thing, so I think I’ll do a 2012 recap today, and post 2013 goals tomorrow.
So here are a few of my favorite things from 2012:
Favorite day: June 15 – our wedding! I’m so thankful to all of our friends and family who made the trip and helped us have the most perfect, wonderful day.
Favorite Graduate: Eric, of course! (Though the entire MAGES ’12 class are all pretty awesome, I think I’m a little bit biased.)
Favorite Puppy: Miss Zoey
Favorite Book: This is a tough one – it’s a toss-up between Elizabeth Wein’s Code Name Verity or Libba Bray’s The Diviners.
Favorite Project: The Great Noveling Adventure! What started as a crazy idea has grown into something really awesome, and I can’t wait to see what happens in 2013!
Favorite Album: Mumford & Son’s Babel. I mean, you guys saw that one coming, didn’t you?
2012 was a big year for me! We had our wedding (since we eloped in 2011), honeymooned in Florida (our first vacation together!), we adopted a puppy, Eric graduated from Georgetown, I took a class at Johns Hopkins, I made new friends and reconnected with old friends, and I finished the second draft of Flightless and (almost) finished the first draft of A Magic Dark and Bright – only 10k(ish) left to go! I’m really, really excited to see what 2013 will bring.
