I am so excited to write this year in review because it truly was the best year ever. I had a great 2012 with wonderful people by my side. As 2012 began Tom and I anticipated our wedding. Last New Years we weren't even halfway through our engagement and I remember being mostly finished with wedding planning. I thought the year would go so slowly, but with a few exciting events (both anticipated and surprise) the year flew by. You will notice that the wedding was a focus of the year, but it was an amazing year overall. Thanks to everyone who helped make this year special. Cheers to 2012 and here's to 2013!
