Thank goodness 2012 is over. Let's just say it was interesting, tough, and I learned a lot about people and myself. Lessons were learned and advice was taken with good measure. Here's a reflection of some of my favorite memories of 2012 . . .

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you are wonderful, and don't forget to make some art - write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.
For the past couple of years I have made a list of things I want to accomplish for the year, a bucket list for the year if you will. It's fun to add events on the list that you're looking forward to, to add goals you'd like to achieve, etc. This is an ever growing list, but here is what I have thus far . . .
Move to NYC
Jessica's wedding and have the best MOH speech
Drink more water | eat more greens
Vacation outside of the USA
Attend a JM concert
Have a pen pal
And as John Mayer says: May this be the year that things go your way most of the time, and when they don't, may you have great friends to lean on.
