Saying Hello to 2013!

It’s New Year’s Day! 2012 was a wonderful year full of good memories, bad memories, and some ugly memories – but I like to think that I’ve learned from experiences positive and negative. I started this blog to recount my travel memories but recently I’ve been caught in a web of laziness! I’m really going to try and commit myself to stop procrastinating and do it! I’m a master of inertia…. an object at rest stays at rest! But I have to get myself into the other mode – an object in motion tends to stay in motion (oh physics… shudder).

I recently read an article that was actually very motivating – 6 Harsh Truths That Will Make You a Better Person, and I keep re-reading it because it really makes a lot of sense. It’s really not enough to just be, you really have to do something also. So here’s to 2013, where I will strive to do more! Take more pictures, write more posts, maybe write a story (and finish it… my Achilles’ heel). Exercise more, explore more, cook more!

Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures

An end of the year photographic round-up of 2012? Can we say HECK YEAH?! This week’s challenge from the Daily Post was only a challenge in so much as trying to narrow down what pictures to use… I started out with 30 so I managed to cut it down to half that, but still not that the 12 they suggested haha. Excess is in my nature I suppose.

Looking back through my photos, 2012 was quite an eventful year –  full of trips big and small, with my mother-in-law coming to live with us, and of course with my wedding. This year seems like the start of my friends getting married – 3 this year and 6 and counting next year! Weddings are a pricey business, for guests as well as the bride and groom, but I do love a great party! I’ll be looking forward to 2013 and everything it has to bring!
