+ Our marriage is still going strong, and we continue to learn more about each other every day. We've talked a lot lately, especially with my heartache, and I think we're closer than ever now. We celebrated our first year of marriage with a trip to New Mexico.
+ My sisters gave birth to beautiful baby boys, Parker and Jonah.
+ We moved into a nicer apartment and I finally have my own office space.
+ The boy and I were both awarded fellowships for our studies. During this economic nightmare, we consider ourselves lucky to have the help.
+ After a scary six weeks of my Dad being sick in the hospital (at the worst time, we were told pancreatic cancer was a possibility--it's since been ruled out--yay!), he is finally at home and regaining strength. I was able to see him over the holiday break, which was such a relief.
The big theme for me for 2012 is to look forward. Make peace with the past. Look forward to things to come. I have a lot to look forward to--in the near future I have my graduation to look forward to, and in the farther future, I see growing our home to include a house and kids.
I really liked this 2012 manifesto poster from creating clever, and so I made my own. If you made one too, I'd love to see it!
2011, go to sleep. 2012, I'm all yours.
Do we share any of the same resolutions? What are your thoughts about the past year?
