January 12, 2013

{a look back at 2012}

Parents always say, “Don’t rush your life away“, and my dad always told me never to count down the days until the weekend because, well, that’d be rushing my life away.

He is 100% right.

Of course I can never refrain from a good countdown, although I think I may have counted down until the weekend one too many times in 2012 because I am fairly certain this was the quickest year on record (in my book).

Sure 2012 had its low points, but it also had lots of highs that I will not soon forget.
