My Year in Review

December 31, 2012
twenty-five

2012 was a big year. With only one day left of December and 2012, I wanted to share with you this landmark year. For me, 2012 has been a year of major life changes, travel, thrilling excitement and powerful personal transformation.

Throughout the year I got the chance to travel to Amsterdam, Rome, Dublin, New York City and Des Moines.

2012 has been a fabulous year. Sharing recipes, photos and words makes me happier than I can say. I’m infinitely grateful for the many wonderful people I’ve met through this little page on the internet. Starting this blog is one of the best things I’ve ever done thanks to you, dear readers. Thank you for your constant love and support – it means the world to me. Happy New Year! xo
