even though this post will be right smack dab between christmas posts [yes, there will be more!], i figured that i better do my little tribute to the year before 2013 is upon us.
2012. where to even begin? this year was full of so many monumental moments, life events that i’ll never forget.
i took my first photography class.
i graduated from college.
after four years in college station, i moved to dallas.
i started an internship with a very special company.
one of my dear friends passed away on july 13th. it was one of the hardest things i’ve ever experienced, and it’s a constant reminder of how precious life is.
i got a full-time job with the company at which i interned. first salaried job!
i moved into my own apartment for the first time.
we took a family trip to argentina… first time in south america/the southern hemisphere!
i started culinary school.
i visited my friend gianina in hamburg over my thanksgiving break.
it was a year of personal development. many of the things that occurred were bittersweet; some were just plain exciting, and others were very, very sad. but i’m confident that everything in this year was a part of God’s plan, and how grateful i am that He is guiding me every step of the way. i’m lucky to be where i am and to have such a wonderful life.
happy new year’s eve! see you in 2013!
p.s. purgy, this next year is for you!
